is an adventure in web development.
Through out the years I have been active in the import
scene on the east coast. Starting in 1995 with the purchase
of a Nissan Sentra SE-R. I've made many friends and
acquaintances because of this hobby come obsession. Lately I
have purchased a 1996 Acura Integra in hopes of once again
becoming submerged into the scene. Alot of things have
changed since I first got involved in tinkering with cars.
First starting with illegal street racing, to organized
events at local tracks, to national events and now to
commercial motivated national television events. Now
with the majority of pro import cars running 8 seconds or
faster it has become more and more commercial and
professional. Long gone are the days of driving a car to the
track and hoping to win a heads up competition. It will only
be a matter of time until we see bracket racing being
removed from import events to make way for the big dollar
heads up pro classes. It's a bit of a double edge sword for
some of us who enjoyed racing at the track, and yet wanting
to see the sport become a major player in the auto industry.
With such success always comes some drawbacks. As always I
hope the scene will continue to grow, and to show the rest
of the world that fast import cars are just as good as their
higher displacement domestic brethren.
