I even went out for a 2 hour ride up and down the Roosevelt boulevard, and got nothing. There was a guy in a 2010 C6 Z06 that was in the wrong isle who was lookin over and revving, but by the time I got over, he had turned off. Of course, as soon as I leave my house in my V6 F150, there are ass hole ricers and mustang gt's all over driving like idiots too. It's driving me nuts!
    yooo u live right there in warminster bro!?!?! U should come out with me on time do some ricer stompin. hahaaa but really There are always meets at sonic on street road and sometimes forman mills off the boulevard, on welsh! Come thru sometime.

    Sadly now demodded :(

    Another "Sad story" about that same Chevelle but before I totaled it...

    I got out of the Army in May of 78 and the SS 396 Chevelle was my only ride. Well, as happens, I met a chick (even back then Muscle Cars attracted chicks). Her bro had a 69 SS 396 also, only his was a 4-speed where as mine was a Th400.

    Well 1 day/night we decided to cruise Beach Blvd (you OC folks know where of I speak) looking for chicks (even though I was sleeping with his sister I had a rep to uphold) in my car and, yes we picked up a couple of chicks and got their phone number (the "date" is another story entirely).

    Well, on the way home (after a few "adult" beverages) I decided to show him my car (modded with headers, a good dual exhaust and an aluminum intake with a Holley 750 double pumper) was every bit as fast as his car. We got waayyyyyy over triple digits (car had a 3.07 geared 12-bolt) going westbound on the 91 (headed towards the South Bay from the OC) when I came upon a car wandering between 2-3 lanes (it was ~3am). I went to the left when he decided he wanted my lane as well as the other 2 he was using.

    An anecdote: I'd put station wagon springs in the rear as I had N50-15 tires (old timers will know what I'm talking about) that were as wide as the wheel well would allow (actually slightly wider). Those were the widest tires they made back in the day + it was the 70's - tires sticking out beyond the wheel well was the "in thing". The station wagon springs on a coupe was a thing you did to get the ass end up high enough to clear the tires in the event the air shocks gave up the ghost. This changed the handling charicteristics of the car but I didn't realize it at the time (I was in my early 20's at the time and not as knowledgeable about cars as I am now).

    Well, I went hard left to avoid the wandering driver. I went WAAYYY to the left, corrected back to the right, back to the left and then I find myself going sideways at 90mph (drivers side forward) down the 91! The wide front (G60-15 front tires) as well as the wide back tires kept me from flipping it. Well the car skidded to a stop and turned 180 deg counter clockwise. This left me with the front of the car in the median and the ass end of the car in the fast lane. I look up... While dude dives out of the car!!!! I see a VW bug barrelling straight towards me! OH SHYTE! He's gonna hit me broadside - with ME ON THAT SIDE! FUCKFUCKFUCK! Car wouldn't start (it stalled out in the spin). VW turns at the last second and plows into the drivers side quarter panel - bending the bumper like a pretzel, trashing the quarter panel and knocking the drivers side tail lamp all to shit.

    The kicker??? The VW KEEPS ON GOING!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? He didn't stop!!!!! Even though the crash was my fault and he wiped out the drivers side of his car!!!!!!

    I got it started, dude jumps back into the car and I gave chase. Never found him. For years I looked for green VW bugs with damage to the drivers side.

    death of a 01

    Mine is a crash story,

    it was around 1:30am and i am hanging with a bunch of honda guys AKA suped up inports, and one dude was bugging me all night to race his Turbo-ed GTI VW, so 2am rolls around and i said sure why not after saying no all night.

    so we roll up to where they want to race im new to the crowed and have no idea where we are going so we are all trailing gti in front me behind him and he starts to stop on a stretch of road i am unsure of but give it a go,

    launch all wrong so he is in front and we are cooking about 140 and blow threw a stoplight and the road starts to cut to the right i start to turn and the back end just slides out. this is where i needed a few people and the police to help me reconstruct what happened.

    my car started sliding and left 480ft of skids before hitting a dirt pile on the side of the road, ( i just happened to find a new freeway they where building) i hit the pile of dirt at about 80 sideways they estimated, now the unclear part is how i got down the hill some say i flipped some say it just endowed but none are for sure. all i now is i flew down a 120ft hill under construction only made it 40ft and the car landed flat and berried itself 4ft down. I'm out....wake up to the dude i was racing going what the fuck. cops are already showing up and he jets. long story short i have a broken back, my L2 was fractured and now fused to my L3 2 weeks in the hospital and my 01 z28 i took 2years rebuilding is totaled. do i regret it Fuck yes i do. but i am a very lucky guy, I am alive, i broke my back and i still can walk, some dude in the crowd told the cops we where racing and went to court and walked away with only a neg 2. will i ever race illegality again Fuck NO. I will post b4 and after shots in my next post.

    You sir are a very lucky man. I'm glad to see you're ok and you've learned from the mistakes. Excessive street racing is a recipe for disaster... I know we're all young and dumb, but we still want to get to the point in our lives where we're old and wise.

    OP we do have a kill stories section. I know Y2K mentioned it at the start of this thread. I noticed your posts are of race kill's not sad stories. Time to close this thread and post kill's in the kill section.
