Think street racing is a new problem? Think again. The youth of today have been ripping up the streets since they were the youth of yesterday. Your parent’s parents terrorized their towns in their beaters just as the neighbor’s kid in a clapped out Civic blasts down your street. Coffee can tailpipes? Grandpa did it with no muffler at all.
