MR2 Driver chases a dude around Atlanta
MR2 Driver chases a dude around Atlanta

I saw this on drive tribe. Its 17 minutes long. A guy in a MR2 is at a light a car stops new to him. The girl in the passenger side of the car next to him toys to get out but the dud in the car wont let her and takes off. The MR2 gives chase. Be fore anyone is critical, he called the cops and was trying to do the right thing by observing and reporting. I don't think its a stock MR2. One giveaway it the pop off valve the other is when he goes over some tracks he slows and there is not much give in his suspension.
Enjoy!

Yea - that is not stock at all with the pop off valve. Man give the guy kudo's for doing that.. thank goodness that guy didn't have a gun and/or was willing to use it. Risky for sure to do this... but also a good thing. Police no-where to be found.

When he hit the wall it sure looks like they both exited through the passenger's door...

That's no MR2 it's a DSM, Eagle Talon-Mitsubishi Eclipse. Good on him for helping, but very surprised the guy in the Camry didn't throw lead at him.

If you go to youtube there is a part 4. He ends up losing the guy. He also updated the post to say the cops finally said the were checking in to it. Minirab, I have daughters. the one that is old enough has her carry permit and is a very good shot and has a bad temper! Last month a lady hit her on purpose. she did it hard enough that my daughter and her friend rolled up on the hood. My daughter didn't pull her gun but did go in to full attack mode. Lucky a cop saw the hole thing and sighted the lady in the car. The lady in the car is lucky a cop was there to stop the mayhem.

Yea its a shame the cops never showed.

Glad your daughter & her friend were OK Lee. It's a crazy world out there.

Ten thumbs up to your daughter, mine is kind of
the same way(without the carry permit), she
doesn't take much crap from anyone if they are in
the wrong.
