How about cell phone talkers putting on their make-up while disciplining children while eating fast food while street racing. I hate those guys!

Good man!

She's a PERFECT example of someone who "grew into their looks!"

Hey NGHTRNNR-thanks for your honesty and keeping your cool. This could have gotten out of hand. I don't race through crowded streets, but i will admit to racing off of a light. As soon as My GT is clearly ahead, and it only takes a few seconds, I slow down. I rarely get up to any high rate of speed off of the line, the car is just so quick. I do speed. I'm surrounded by highways. It's not uncommon to be alone on the road in the middle of the day. If the sun is shining and the tunes are good, I'm flying low. I'm female and 40 years old. I'm married, have a son and pretty much obey most every other law I can think of. I've always loved to drive fast. At 12, my Honda XR75 went as fast as it could go everyday in the fields and deadend street where I grew up. I guess we all need to take it to the track. I guess it wouldn't kill us. Maybe it would save us! I have a feeling those of us who race or speed will continue to do so, and those who don't will shake their heads. NGHTRNNR,please be careful out there. I enjoy your posts and opinions and I admire your honesty. You and I are not in the same league, but I do see your side. I'm going to try to do better.

I have a question. The highway in front of my subdivision is 60 MPH. If I am stopped at the light, and it turns green, and no cars are in front of me, in your opinion, can I get to 60 MPH as fast as I can? This is a well paved road (black top) with 2 lanes going N and 2 going S. No twists or turns. Can I get to 60 as fast as I can if I am the only car? What if, say, a Charger were beside me? Thoughts? I know, don't do it. NGHTRNNR,this is what I'm talking about. I guess real street racing is something different. Or is it? I'm about to start acting my age, I swear it!

Did do my share of street traffic light quick 3-4 gear drags. Some stupid, but others were well planned and way out where there was no chance of traffic. Even had the police attend a couple matches. It's a plus to have a strip of blacktop available to do these runs when the need arises.

With the genre that "Raw and Naked" sounds like it falls in… I'm sure the acting was superb!

Solstice? That's rear wheel drive. Get what I have for bad weather and a DD.. A Gen1 Lightning. Great gas mileage (as long as the engine is off). Front wheel drive (as long as you drive it in reverse). Can comfortably seat 12-15 of your friends family (as long as they don't mind sitting in the bed). And it hauls a$$ (thank to many mods, this is true.).

I take it to the track too...

PLEASE use care if you get into a street race! Please think of what CAN HAPPEN, what is in front, road, road conditions, traffic, etc. Is the other guy sober (are you?)? As some have mentioned before here; often a quick pull to show you're DA MAN will suffice! Don't go all out and see how many car lenghts you can get, in my book one car lenght, even less sometimes, is the winner! If you then wanna blow my mirrors off and be a DOUBLE LOSER go for it and I'll laugh at you!!
