Nova kills 5
what sticks in my mind the most is the elderly couple killed one sunday afternoon by a 1970 nova just clowning around.killed 5 people!
5 think about it,in 1 second 5 peoples lives were over because of someone getting on it,blowing the engine and crossing the yellow line.Happened right out in frt of my shop.Witnesses said the nova was doing over 100 mph when it blew its engine and all hell broke loose as it slid on the oil.The old couple never even seen it coming as they were hit at the very top of a blind hill as they drove over the top the nova creamed them.The blood and oil laid in the street for days,it was sickening.
if this forum doesn't support street racing this won't be deleted!

No offense, but shit happens. No one on earth is going to die before it's their time. When it's your time, that's it. It may be gruesome, it may be painful, it may be a freak occurence or you could die in your sleep. It doesn't really matter how it happens. The end result is the same. We all die.
Don't live like you've got tomorrow, because at some point, you wont.

Crazy as it sounds but the powers that be are discussing and planning in the near future cars that ONLY can go the posted speed limits.Personally i think its a bit much to go such a extreme,but its coming.Gotta do something to protect people from themselfs.I guess pasrt of the problem is our roads are so over crowded,everyone is stressed out in a hurry.Hell the other night coming home i'm behind two drivers going the posted speed limit on a busy two lane road.I got 10 cars on my AZZ trying to push me through them.Well the 1st car stops to turn left and of course i stop behind them.There was less than a few ft on the shoulder with a high bank.THOSE CARS BEHIND ME PASSED ME ON MY fking right!If i hadn't seen it with my own eyes i would have said BS,noway they would try it.Then when i tried to go again after the cars in frt of me turned the PRICks were blowing their horns at me still trying to get by me as i was MOVING!.I had to actually stand on it and get ahead of these azzholes to get going in my lanr again.Trust me if i would have been driving anything other than my wifes TA there would have been CARNAGE!

If they make new cars only do the speed limit I'll just keep my old car and pass them slow asses up.

I can completely understand the anger anyone would feel if they lost loved ones in what they deemed to be a senseless loss. However, what I'm trying to tell you is that it wouldn't matter if they were hit by a car that was racing or not. If it is their time to go, they're going to go. If it wasn't by being hit by a car, it would've been something else.

I remember an Older Nova that hit a tree killing 5 High School kids near Wayland Michigan. It was in the late 70's or early 80's. It was determined that the accident was becuase of speed and a real small steering wheel that was popular back then. It wasn't even a drag race...There is usually a lot more involved than just the race it self to become deadly. Speed just simply increases the chances as well as a lack of sleep for example...

For me the turning point was having kids. I used to race at the drop of a hat but now not so much. I will still race someone but usually only dig races and for short distances in zero traffic. I had 3-4 people trying to run me tonight in the GTO. They were all on the highway and would pace me then get on it trying to get me to go. I passed on all of them. No high speed races for me anymore. I want to see my kids grow up if at all possible and would hate to be the reason someone else doesn't get to see theirs.

like some one else said shit happens. but were i'm from the bible thumpers here won't let you have a strip so you gotta drive around 1 1/2 to 2 hrs away to race. what i'm saying is if kids/ racers had a place to go(or more places) around here we would have less racing and bs going on but the officals don't see it that way.so make a differance and lobby for more tracks instead of knocking every one here!LS7 clutch,01 slave,Corsa 3" stainless exhuast,drilled/slotted rotors + ceramic pads,160 thermo,Mti clear lid,msd 8.5 wires & Ngk plugs...more to come!

I do agree with you that there should be more places for people to take their cars to but that is something you need to take up with your local government. I live in the bible belt also but we have a few strips around here. But you could have one in your back yard and I think you'd still have people doing street racing at the drop of the hat!!! It boils down to taking responsibility and using your head!

i totally agree. and when i get friday nights off i do go to the track. but if we had one in our county the guys in town fri & sat nights could cruz a few mins away to the track instead of a few mins away to the local drags(streets). i my self am no angel i've done it to.(the other night a sheriff/off duty "tried" to run me in his stang) but more tracks = less on streets you'll never stop them all but you can stop some.

sorry knocking was kinda harsh. and your right we ll need to be a little more responsable.

Are there enough flat spots in SC to have a drag strip?
I agree that if communities wanted to really do something about it they would support and build at least an 1/8th mile track and keep it cheap so kids can go racing. They'll race anyhow. Might as well make it in a safe(r) environment.
