A true hotrodder wouldn't be content until he had created a car so violent, so hairy, so totally sick that the very act of dropping the hammer would result in instant death.

Anything less results in the need to go faster.

Would it be correct to surmise that the person that said; "It is more fun to drive a slow car fast than a fast car slow" was not a racer?????

With our new gas standards of 54 mpg, we all better enjoy our cars now for God only knows what are we will be driving in 2025
