is it just me or the car scene just feels like it has nothing to offer anymore


hangout spots constantly deserted

im a car enthusiast 24/7 and there's nothing going on

hot headed torretos

cant blame the cops, not every spot is hot, and not every night is for racing.

Since the fall of the original D-shop, this has pretty much happened every year since, there will be times when no one is around and not a tuner can be found haha.

Some people connect the lack of enthusiasm this time of year due to the weather since its cold which is good if you want to race but bad if you want to stand around and chat. Especially OUTSIDE among a big/decent gathering of people.

But my guess is that nobody is racing since there have been a lot of close calls with the law lately, therefore the reason why nobody is out.

People wont go out to race because the race scene is HOT right now, and people wont go out to chat/hangout because the weather is/was COLD. In months to come, that will all change Chuckle

I agree with kenny its always been like this. I was once like ryan and i would go to the hang out spot which was food4less for a brief moment and thenit moved to inNout.

The reason i think people arent going no more is because gas prices are ridiculous!! So people think twice in waisting their gas racing.. But thats what i think is going on. And dont worry ryan it always dies out but then it gets better. For me it died out for like a year in which it was me and 2 of my friends.....good old $2.80 gas price!! Miss those days

hahah I remember food4less, when I first met Uly representing the mid-engine monsters with the fresh Puma's on... but yeah that is another factor, gas prices...

Soon everything will be back to normal, and tuners everywhere, d-shop, sonic, in-n-out, etc. Racing or chilling or both

Like my buddies kenny and ULY just said. Part is that yes gas prices.. yes too many close calls. But lets take into consideration that The current (racing generation) are becoming new parents. are focusing on their careers, Trying to make their bank and becoming independent. There is no free nights to stay up late like before cuz yall got to work early or study for that test.. In my opinion is that ppl have priorities and can't risk or afford problems with the law. Winter time is always slow. But summer is when we all get kinky racer and start going out hunting for good races!

So ryan.. Yall now there is always some one that will race you but we all have tu do some to keep the scene alive and keep the interest going on by keeping it alive in your selft and pass it on to the new gens!!

I just don't see any new blood getting into the scene by the masses, guess I just gotta be patient and use the time to upgrade my car so I can look cool when the new kids come in. 3gears

I agree what UlY, Kenny, and Amazecreta said gas prices, new member in the fam like some of us including me with 3 kids, law enforcement, weather etc I use to go when they where hanging out at Rite Aid i was like 17-18 yrs old and then to the donut shop on 4 th st after that i started making my fam bigger so no more for me plus suspended license i love the racing world but when your kids are falling asleep on your arms theres nothing you cant do and its not fair living it to the wife when its both responsibilities but thats why i just go once in a blue moon jaja so yup
