Alan, Thanks for sharing, :thumbs:Great story and photos. I get tailgated everyday on the interstate to and from work. There is always one guy who has to get there before everybody else and get past you. Those are the ones that I like to slow down as I get next to them and crowd them a little.

What a pain!! :wallbanging:

Excellent photo series!!  The best picture I have of an elephant was right before he decided he didn't like us so close.  All I can say is, Dad kept his vehicles in tune and we were able to accelerate out of the way.

That's funny right there!!

My best way for tail gaters was way back in college and I know it wasn't right, but I had an old Chevy truck with straight exhaust out the back. Had some car so close to me I couldn't see headlights....and that was with no tailgate on. I dropped the ole Chev' in 2nd, cut ignition for about 4-5 sec, then lit 'er up. That whole car lit up and I never saw them again.
