My dad and I decide to go out for a cruise since he his feeling a little better (currently has lung cancer) and he hasnt driven the z in over a week. We stop at the gas station and get some fuel and some compliments. Of course we leave the gas station sideways and roast the 325's. We are cruising down Hillsbourgh road and notice a new 911 making a u turn. My dad say's, hey what model Porsche is that? I say, the 2007 911. He responds, do you think we can take him? Before i can say anything hes drops to second gear gets along side the 911 and its on. We wax him with 5 car lengths easy. Next up, the red light. The light goes green and my dad drops the hammer. He nails second and bam...backfire, then third, bam..... backfire. We put a hurting on this 911. For a great dad going through lung cancer for 2 years, the Z06 brings a huge smile to face along with his family.

Wow, your dad has balls for racing on Hillsbourgh Ave., i've seen horrific accidents on that road and Dale Mabry.

Props for your dad and all getting a good kill, hope he gets better. Lost a Grandfather to lung cancer.

Nothing like a good kill to release those ever-so-useful endorphins to help bring a smile to your dad's face! Great story and my prayers go out to your father for a speedy recovery!
