Re: Paul Walker dead

I don't know who else will be rolling up with me. I may show up really early so I can find a parking spot. According to the socalcarmeet Facebook page, there will be about 4,000 "will attend" cars showing up. I don't know how accurate that is, but I don't want to take a chance.

Re: Paul Walker dead

I was at the event, left around 2:30pm. Found out about the crash when I got home. I could not believe that he is dead. The guy is a real car guy through and through! Anyone going to this? I'll probably be going with my wife for the cruise to PCH, but not the whole day event. I'll be driving my L'L ...

Re: got a ticket leaving Nisie showoff...

Only issue if he gets nabbed again for the same thing, it could mean serious consequences for him and/or the car. I dont know the laws about this, but if you are a repeat offender for a lot of things, they dont play around. I asked the state referee what would happen if I put everything back and go...

Red,
California "in state" law is 20 days. By Cali law, if your car has been in the state for 20 days you have to apply for Cali plates.

Got a ticket for Exhaust modified... It is not, and read again, NOT illegal to modify your exhaust, at least not on its own. At least last I looked into it. THE SHORT VERSION The law can be summarized as stating that your car must have a muffler on the exhaust system that is not bypassed ANYWHERE i...

Nope, I just pulled out from the show. Saw the cop in front of me. Driving slow, then he pulled to the side and let me go around him. About to enter the freeway and that's when he pulled me over. And yes he had me open the hood. I thought no big deal, I'm smog exempt. So I signed the ticket and I wa...

Re: ... I'm gonna put my hose into my headlight

its that Boso fad here in the states, but the reason why lot of these cars don't have them hooked up is cause under California law, there cannot be a external oil cooler system that is in operation condition. If your cooling system is in operation it has to be either behind the bumper or hidden awa...
