people grew up/got dailies, younger kids didn't have the fast and the furious, the economic downturn, etc. all conspired against the car scene.

I see cars everyday also, here and there... Not on the weekend cruising and racing... There used to be parking lots with 15-20 cars in them... Seeing a car here and there isn't what I'm talkin about... If I'm looking in the wrong places where do I need to be looking, that's what I'm tryin to find out lol

cost/responsibilities starts to lean more towards responsibilities as you get older. Which for this site 80% of it's members are starting to see grey hairs.

It's not fair that you right about this. I have had some gray hairs growing since I was in my early 20's so its not a big deal to me. 11 years later and it still looks the same but maybe a dozen more gray's mixed in.

However, I do miss the days my younger days of racing til 1am. It was easy to pick up chicks back then and the cars were plenty. Not a care in the world except when I blew up my engine on the multiple occasions. Then the gangsters moved in and screwed it all up. Cops started cracking down hard on all the usual spots and well....life's priorities changed when my son was born.

I remember racing till 3 or 4 am. Cops usually didnt show up until really late. Levy rd, Topping, the Castet Co, the Power Plant, 135th. That was a fun time.

Then it was a speeding or C&I ticket, now they throw the book at you and try to slap you with a felony. Kind of takes the fun out of it.

Age has nothing to do with it. Many people still race, but the huge race events are a thing of the past. It's more private now for safety reasons. Get to know some people, hang out in the kills section.
