Vroom, Vroom, Vroom in University Park?
I’m not super knowledgeable about cars so I can’t really tell you what kind of sports machine this is. But it was in front of me in the carpool line yesterday afternoon at the elementary school. I wouldn’t even have noticed it if the driver hadn’t been playing music so loud I could hear it with my windows up. And if he hadn’t been making the engine do that vroom vroom vroom sound every few minutes. I’m not kidding you. Legit.
It was so totally not typical carpool lane behavior for the Park Cities that I’m thinking the driver just moved here from a flashy Collin County suburb. Anyway, welcome to University Park where people tone it down a bit.

I assume this was intended to be an illustrated post.
I don’t know a whole lot about cars either, but I know that one: Audi R8. Someone must have gotten a pretty sweet year-end bonus, because they’re something like $150k or $175. Plus, they go 0-6- in under 4 seconds. They’re basically a street-legal race car. Super-gangsta.
@Uppercase Matt, I see a pic. Do you see one now?
I haven’t spied Maserati Man lately. Maybe they could get together. Maserati Man could show the new guy how to make the left turn from Daniel onto southbound Hillcrest a double turn lane if he’s late for drop-off.
I didn’t until I turned off Firefox Adblock — it looks like the filters updated to block anything in the wp-content/uploads directory. I’ll have to watch that.
Merritt, you know I think the world of you, and so I have to assume that your speculation (and mockery) of the fact that this guy must have come from Collin County has to be severely tongue-in-cheek. After all, didn’t you come from said flashy county?
But, yes, revving engines is something reserved for high school parking lots and rap videos. Very unbecoming on anyone, especially when the intended audience is made up of 10 year olds.
I mean, next thing you know, this guy is wearing Audi driving gloves into the Starbucks just long enough so that everyone can figure out which car he’s driving. “Oh, this Porsche hat? This old thing? Yeah, I just threw it on this morning before I walked out the door, but yes, I do in fact drive a Porsche.”
There’s just no excuse for these shenanigans.
I’d race the chump in my Veyron any day
But what color were his Crocs?
I have a neighbor who has two sports cars that make loud vroom vroom sounds and I’m really tired of hearing the revving at 6 am and midnight and I live in HP. Any negative karma toward this behavior is very welcome in my opinion!
UP has our share of vroom vroom but it’s in the form of 8th graders on motorcycles. Yea.
