Hey there, hi there, ho there!
This past Saturday my wife and I almost bit the big one picking up a Cosmic Avenger in Long Island, NY. I’m not that familiar with the roads there, and we were on 495 heading back home in my rust bucket of a truck. I was a bit nervous driving that far with it (3hrs and 15 mins each way), but couldn’t pass up a good deal ($150). I was in the slow lane, because my truck is not exactly a racing vehicle. The lane was suddenly ending in front of us, and I didn’t see any signs warning about it ahead of time. I looked very quickly to my left and there was a
guy jackass behind me in the left lane. I put my blinker on to get over, and he gunned it! The bastard sped up. I must have been a quarter inch from him on the left and the same distance from the guard rail. I swerved and the game rocked all over the place. I don’t know how we didn’t manage to wipe out, but I’m certainly glad we didn’t. I guess it’s true what they say about NY drivers.
Here’s a few pics of it:
