An older friend of mine bought a 2000 3.4 porsche 911 c2. I just loved the power of that car. 3 years ago I started driving and I truly became addicted. I would race my poor slightly modified metro 4cyl vs. a '98 civic ex. We would play chase. I have more money now so i'm looking into audi tts' but the concept is still the same.

Re: How/When did you get into street racing

haha GO RR! It sounds like I'm in the minority, street racing before F&F even came out...but F&F sure catalyzed my passion for street racing even more.

Re: How/When did you get into street racing

The only reason I ever watched F&F is because I loved cars and I was bored at my cousins house and he had just rented it on DVD. So we watched it while waiting for our friends to show up.

I know you enjoyed watching it. As soon as your friends showed up, you started it all over again didn't you? Don't lie, I know you did . L8...

Re: How/When did you get into street racing

I thought it was okay. And I eventually bought it on VHS at wal mart for $4.99.

I was born into it I guess. My dad always told me his race stories he was in and some with his friends. He told me a whole lot about his 59 Corvette that was a nasty car.

The thing that got me was my dad and I were in his 90 5.0 on the turnpike going home when a 99 + Spyder Eclipse was giving us a hard time trying to race. Dad finally dropped it down a couple of gears and shot off. The Eclipse tried to catch up but it was useless. Soon about a mile or two down the road the guy did a ricer fly by at about 100 mph.

After I saw that the F&F came out and I thought everybody on there was punks like the Eclipse driver (soon found out we call these people ricers). After I got my license I noticed there were a whole lot of "punks" on the road. It soon became a fun pass time messing with them and that's how I got into racing.

Re: How/When did you get into street racing

My mom used to go racing with my older sister... and with the guy she was dating at the time. She had a '70 Nova with a mild 350. He had a '72 Chevelle with a Mild 350 as well.

Her car was faster, cause it was lighter. Plus he was a dink.

Anywho, she never took me out racing... then one night she did something to piss me off, dont remember which, but she asked me what she could do to make me feel better. She wanted to take me to the Arcade... well, I said take me to the street races.

She said Ok, well we never went... but she'd get on it in the Nova while I was in it. Usually while I was taking a drink and I'd get soda all over my face and up my nose. She thought it was funny... I didn't.

Ahh Bonding...


I don't particularly 'street race', I just like goofing around in cars in general. I don't have to be going 100mph to enjoy the car.

Re: How/When did you get into street racing

Yeah, but going less than 100 mph in YOUR car would be like dating Carmen Electra just to cuddle.

Re: How/When did you get into street racing

I had just gotten my learners permit and was in the school parking lot with my dad, I then tried to see how fast I could get it up to. Had some fun, went up to 30, but I ran out of room. Ive liked speed ever since.
