hey now, whered all the old people from superhonda go?
anyways, heres my sad story. i started modding my car in late '97. i liked it. then in aug 2001 i moved from houston, tx to this shitty place call corpus christi to finish school. well i get down here and 2 weeks later, i get up in the morning and my car is gone. cops find it stripped on side of some farm road. im wasnt really mad. my eyes are opened now. all this import stuff isnt fun anymore. from 1996-1999, those were the good yrs, i dont know what it is now. by the way, im getting a supercharged mustang gt for x-mas. =o)

Ur sad sad storey resembles mine. 2 years ago my Mustang GT ,with sooooo many mods in every department it would blow ur mind if u saw my ride, was ripped off off from my campus. They shit kicked it and stripped all the parts that they could. I was sooo set back by wut happened to my 375 HP baby that I did all the work to that I wasnt about to start all over. I got fustrated and bought a civic. And here I am now, obsessed with the IMPORT scene !!!!!!!!!!!!!

wow that really sucks, i havnt really been into cars that long, i was getting into it about a year and a half ago and then kinda of got out of it, and then about 6 months ago a friend got me interested in it again, the only scene i really know shit about is the hardcore/straight edge scene and i get pissed when all kids get into it as a passing phase but its somethign dear to me, is it really "smart" to have goten out of the scene before it got like it is know really "smart" or did it probly just not mean as much to them? thats just what i think

btw, if any of that was worded weird its cause i went to sleep at 230 and was up at 730 for work, so im tired as shit, i should go to sleep but why waste daylight

You know for a while I got like that to. I didnt want anythng to do with Imports. Back in HS I use to work to only support my ex's Addiction to modifying his 97LS Integ..... ( I invested more in that car then he ever did, anyways ) then in 99 we broke up. I was still into the whole scene, we'd still hookup to go to the shows together and we'd always see our friends there...
Towards mid 99 I got my civicDXhatchback and I was still into the whole Racing scene, just without my ex. ( MILPITAS every weekend :D ) First week I had my car, I dropped it..Second Week, I got my intake...Third week, I got my headers, and so on... anyways when I found out he was dating some girl with a NEON, it completly made me just drop everything and it even made me regret everything i did to my car.
I kept it up until the end of 2000 by then I was even embarrassed to be seen rolling in my car.... ( can you believe that and it was sooooo cute tooo... ofcourse I had a kit on it and all but all because my boyz where always hooking me up with parts and stuff. ) Anyhow about 1 week after I traded my car in I got back into the scene again ( whatta dumbass huh ) I mean it was always in me, but I had just felt like I had no one to share the fun with.... and when I found someone I could relate to again..then it made it that much easier for me to get back into it....

anyhow LONG ASS story, but anyhow my point was that even till now it doesnt feel the same anymore...without my oldschool friends and all... I Misss them...

the problem with all scenes is petty ass drama and jelousy, with music its bands jelous of other bands, with cars its kids jelous of other kids cars, as far as racing it should always be for fun but if some rich arrogant prick thinks he can beat you with the car his mommy and daddy got him for his 16th birthday you should take advantage, providing you can beat him, im just glad theft and shit like that doesnt go down in my town(i made a rhyme), i dont know if its cause most kids are cool with each other or the fact that they are scared of what will happen to them, either way it makes me feel safer
