Found this on nexopia, my public site i go on alot. Knew I had to share it here

We are the people you watch in disgust. We are the people who pass you on the freeway. We are the people whose noise haunts the blacktop in the twilight hours. We are the people who bring the rattle of a blitz blow off valve, the rasp of a HKS muffler, and the crack of a blue flame to the moonlight. We are the people that others stop on the sidewalk to watch pass in awe and disbelief. We are the people who work by day and play by night. We are the people who gather after dark. But why do we gather? What brings us all together?
We are car owners. With a distinctive difference. We put best part of our time into our cars. We didn’t just pay twenty grand for a car that already looked like this and never bother to wash it. We do all of the installation ourselves, or at least we know what is going on. We wash our cars every week. Most of the time in our own driveway or street, with a garden hose. Not at the car wash. We need to know our cars. And to do this we need to spend time with them. You can’t see that scratch or dent while you’re sitting in your driver’s seat. We hit all the bumps, and all the snags. Found that this won’t fit here the hard way, found out the value of a millimetre more space. We round out nuts and strip screws. We skin knuckles to the bone and we come out after dark to tell about it, and to show off a piece of ourselves. Something we created which is truly unique. Something that only we, as a group of like minded individuals, can fully understand and appreciate. But we are fading fast.
We are slowly being driven apart by the mindless few who attempt to join us. Driving dangerously, taking risks and breaking laws that were put there for public safety. We are tired of this and most of all we are tired of being stereotyped with these mindless few who refuse to obey the law. They are slowly destroying our way of life, and all that we have worked to achieve. We do not wish to be judged. We do not wish to be stereotyped into a category with the idiots who are destroying the very fabric of our culture. Those who hide in the shadows, waiting four our backs to turn like vultures, in an attempt to vandalise and steal the very equipment we work so hard to pay for. And where are the upholders of the laws we try so hard not to bend or break?
Ignoring our plight, because we have been categorised under the same label as this scum, the scum who destroy our hope, the scum who tear apart our dreams with the sound of shattering glass and alarms. The mindless few, who pilfer, steal and burn our pride. They do this because they do not understand us, and what they do not understand they fear.
This vehicle belongs to an enthusiast. Not one of these mindless idiots. This vehicle is cherished, because it represents a culture that is fading fast, and earning a bad reputation because of the mindless few that seek to destroy our way of life. Why they do this we do not know, but we do not wish to be prejudiced because of the actions of a mindless few. Next time you hear the rasp of a performance exhaust, or the hiss of a blow off valve, remember this:

“ We are young people enjoying our lives, people who try to stay on the good side of the law, we do not wish to be judged. We simply wish to gather as we do, and to show how much work we are willing to undertake to prove ourselves as individuals. We do not judge, by race, colour or religion. Every one of us is equal. Every one of us is a unique individual, our views, tastes and opinions expressed through the style of the vehicle we drive. Understand this, and you will understand the results we work so hard to accomplish.”

No car in general, its more towards all car enthuiests, but more on the import side of it, but it applies to all of them in general

I would agree with about 90% of that excerpt.

I whole heartedly believe that it is 90% of the YOUNG people who are ruining the sport.

I stop enough of them racing towards the latest car crowd on saturday nights, as they weave in and out of traffic, smoke tires at the stop light, and then complain when I stop them for tearing up the roadway traffic in my neighborhoods!

I firmly believe junior got his enthusiast bug from dad, but couldn't afford dad's habit so he made do with his little honda. then it blew up and now we've got a new scene. And the kids are rebels without a clue.

Luck you got a warning. Normally these guys just bang you with 3 points and a fine and you are heading towards a ban if you keep doing it

They can't prove I was driving, cause it was one person who reported me to the police.
If they had seen me(being the cops), then I woulda got a ticket.
Cause you can report anyone you want, aslong as you get there plate, its retarded, I could report my neighbours car right now, even tho its sitting out front.

Haha, I'd have to use two different phones, and change my voice for each one, cause you need 2 people to report you for you to get a warning.

The other drivers can all have the option to press charges on you, my dad had a call to him, and the other driver was going to press charges.

What was retarded, when they called me, I was in a merge lane, and the other driver never made room to let me in, so instead of being one of the idiots that slows and hits the breaks I hit the gas and went infront of her. She came from the left lane to the right, where i was going to merge into.
2 drivers reported me for that incident.
