HAHA, thank god my car didn't get hurt.....

I raced my friend in his 89 Mustang GT, just for fun, we went back and forth on this long ass highway, then, the uphill turn comes. I'm in the lead, I get inside, close to the cement guards.... and my car swerves, then next thing I know, I'm lookin at my friend's head lights coming toward me, and looking back at the cement guard on the side... flying toward it, ass first, I was like, SHI*!!! please don't let me bap that guard, then I see smoke and the center island. All the while I'm stomping the brake, and the car came to one of those only-see-it-in-the-movies- comedy stops.... the car slides gently to the left, and I feel a slight little nudge of the island's curb... whew. By grace of God, I lived, and the car came out unscathed. After that I went home and shot Speed Racer in the head, his succesor Pimp Daddy Jon, has taken residence in the Ack Legend. :D

I feel the same way as you ma man about the sedan not so much so with the Coupe though. Street racing I think is not wise at all in fact I think its a foolish outlet to get your thrills on, you wreck your car and its now garbage all that go fast $$$ out the window and all it takes is once.
Noooo, to me you hit/scrape a wall or another car or even a curb going 80-90+ in my eyes the car will then be garbage and bye bye it goes cause I wounldn't want the car anymore, you hit anything stationary going that fast your car will be in most cases considered totaled even if it is still driveable, after that no I would not want it therefore a waste of mods. Yes garbage, because I no longer have any use for it.
