Trooper,
It is refreshing to see that not everyone has gone mad. I thought I was one of the only sane ones left. I come from a meduim sized town in Pennsylvania. I noticed, since the early 90's, a disturbing trend in my area. I see people from all walks of life and, ethnic backrounds, publically humiliating themselves without even knowing it. It is fun to watch 20 somethings that still live with there parents,(exspecially the white kids that come from wealthy families) driving through the "hood" (which is actually a nice middle class neighborhood) acting like they are... how do they say it "hard" with their clown cars, and trucker hats put on crooked. They spout off about how much horsepower there 4 or 6 cylinder import is making and how they have "smoked" mustangs and camaros on the street. It is funny though... when I ask these people "Come down to the Grove (local dragstrip) and put it to the test, they always seem to find a reason not to come. I own a '92 Mustang GT that I bought for $2,000.00 and have rebuilt/refurbished myself. It now has a 351 in it that has had some minor mods done to it (all throttle no bottle), a nice navy blue paint job, and crager wheels. Even my friend's that own camaros like it. The main point I am trying to make here is that most of these kids have actually no working knowledge of how their cars supposedly make so much horsepower, since none of them even know what a wrench look likes. They try to tell me and my friends how our cars suck, and are dinosaurs. What they just don't seem to get, or have, is any character or self respect for themselves or for anyone else. They think with cars, as with people that it is what is on the outside that counts. I would just like for them to actually look at themselves and at their cars, because to the rest of the world they look like hollow shells that could be bought for a few hundred dollers (I am talking about the cars AND the people). To them I just laugh, and they lay down my familiar challenge, "Let's go to the Grove and actually show me how fast your car is against my dinosuar of a mustang". If you want to post this please feel free to do so. I will keep my ticket book on hand and at the ready. Keep up the good work.
