It was another petty row, which claimed another young life.
Luke Fleming, 20, was a passenger in a motorbike, heading to a friend's house.
Mitchell McGivern, 18, deliberately drove his Fiat Sedici at the motorbike, before smashing into a pump at a petrol station.
Shocking CCTV video - released by police as detectives appealed for information - shows how McGivern deliberately drove at the bike.
The Manchester Evening News has taken the decision not to republish the harrowing footage.
McGivern claimed he just wanted to 'scare' the pair on the bike; that he wanted to 'sh** them up'.
But he did not break or swerve.
In fact, McGivern accelerated as he approached the motorcycle from behind, reaching speeds of up to 60mph. He only started to break after impact.
The driver of the bike miraculously survived, despite not wearing a helmet.
Luke, who had been wearing a helmet, bravely clung to life for six days in hospital, but sadly died.
Police launched a murder investigation, describing the incident as a 'targeted attack'.
At a Manchester Crown Court trial, prosecutors did not pinpoint one single event which led to the deadly crash, but said it didn't happen 'out of the blue'.
They told jurors of 'two relatively minor' incidents had taken place before the collision, which happened on Eastham Way in Little Hulton at about 9pm on Saturday, May 11.
Just 50 minutes before the fatal crash, a Ford Fiesta pulled up outside the M T Bell'z takeaway in Little Hulton.
Three men got out and attacked a man named Lewis Pearson.
Prosecutors did not allege McGivern was one of those three men.
A week before, the same Ford Fiesta had been damaged after someone threw a brick at the windscreen.
Amongst the debris of the crash, a small knife containing DNA from the driver of the motorbike, and a small axe containing Luke's DNA were both found.
An eight-inch kitchen knife was also found in McGivern's car.
Clearly, tensions had been brewing between rival factions, and tit-for-tat reprisals were being exacted.
But what happened on Eastham Way was off the scale. It was a huge escalation from what had gone before.
McGivern pleaded not guilty to murder, despite the damning CCTV evidence capturing what happened that night.
He had only bought the Fiat he drove that night the day before.

Giving evidence, McGivern claimed he was 'just trying to scare' Luke and his friend.
Asked what he wanted to achieve by trying to 'scare' them, McGivern suggested he wanted to frighten them so they would leave the area.
"I didn't want them giving my mates sh**," he said.
"I expected them to stop causing trouble," McGivern added.
He claimed he didn't know that Luke had been dragged under the car.
McGivern told jurors that after the crash he said to his two passengers 'what the f***'s just happened?'.
Leaving Luke for dead on the floor, he 'panicked' and fled.
McGivern left the area and was not arrested until Saturday, May 25, in Nottinghamshire.
Meanwhile Luke underwent brain surgery, and his family watched on as he died six days after the crash.
Luke's sister Katie movingly told how she held her brother's hand as he passed away.
"We just do not know what to do," she told the M.E.N. at the time.
"My little brother is dead. I was holding his hand, but he just could not make it.
"He did nothing to deserve this. He was only going to meet some friends.
"We just want these people caught and and anyone with information, no matter how small or large, to tell the police.
"We are all just devastated."
Now McGivern faces a life sentence after being unanimously found guilty of murder.
He was also found guilty of attempting to cause grievous bodily harm with intent, relating to the driver of the motorbike.
Luke's family face their own life sentence, having to go on without a 'loving family man with an infectious smile'.
"Luke had the best manners and was so polite," Katie added.
"He also had the best smile and giggle. When he smiled and laughed you could not help but smile and laugh too.
"He loved his family and his two best friends, Martin and Lewis, were also his family. He was loyal to everyone."
McGivern will be sentenced on December 19.
