    You know you're an original when you're first dyno sessions were at Pete's original shop!!!

    Anyone remember the 2 guys going to test drive a black cobra then beating the shit out of it with the salesman....then coming back and "saying can't do black". LOL

    Remember the videos something like Getaway from Stockholm. Not sure if they were real or not but basically night racing from the cops. The one the OP posted is my all time favorite.

    So I looked it up after posting and apparently they did it every year for 10 years. Each year they used a different car. I remember it from when I was in college so that was pre 2005. So it was the earlier ones.

    A lot of cobra videos I used to watch are not on YouTube anymore sadly. But love this one and watch it often.

    Back then a lot of people used Streetfire before YT. This was a great vid for sure.

    3:10 minute mark of this video always gets me, after chasing him for like 10 minutes (this is a shortened vid of a longer one out there)...."It's not a race it's a Rally" lol

    I never got that excited over street racing videos. I started going to the drag strip in high school with my first car. I always saw street racing as just goofing around for fun. I also never got into all that tribal tattoo and body piercing music. Lol

    I remember when he posted that video on the forums. Legit can't believe how fast time went. Blink of an eye.
