    Street racers busted

    The cops have busted 10 people and consfiscated 6 cars of a street racing gang.

    Unfortunately, someone posted some videos to YouTube, which shows license plates. Ooops.

    Yup. If I'd had a cool car back in HS, I probably would have been out there too.

    My buddy Scott had a Mach-1 Mustang, and he went through tires pretty quickly.
    But also, with the amount of drinking he did, he was lucky never to get busted for drunk-driving.

    Ditto.

    In 1987, I wrapped my '78 Camaro around a telephone pole; I was stinky drunk - and felt the need for speed. Damn lucky I didn't get killed - or kill anyone else. My friend Stuart (the Stu Monster) wasn't so lucky. He bought it in his '71 GTX 440...

    Yup.

    Except we did it with motorbikes.

    Only the third clip really says it...

    informal drag racing will never be stopped ... gene selection

    It probably happened in the 19th century, too. Only with horses.
