I'm 29 and have a stock '96 M Edition w/5spd. I still can't believe this, but I had two stop light races with a guy in his 40s driving a 5.0 Mustang GT (about an '89-'90). I jokingly put my foot down a bit but didn't seriously want to race until he gave me the thumbs up. We raced from 0-50 at the first light, then out of town from 0-75. I was exactly even with him from 0-50 and during the second race too, until about 70 where his third gear had a little more torque and he pulled ahead just a little bit. We were both smiling at this point and gave each other a knod as he turned off. I easily took a 240SX off the line, so I guess this race shouldn't have been toooo surprising.
