What do you do with a fast car in Houston?

I have never been over 80 anywhere around there :pinch:

I love it when I see a Ferrari or Lamborghini in bumper to bumper traffic on the Katy Freeway :laugh:

Well the first car i ever drove was my moms 1994 Mitsubishi Galant, wasnt that bad told her i could drive but i didnt have a clue of what i was doing, so i almost hit a bus.

Then my first car that i bought was a 1997 VW Golf Trek, i loved that piece of metal, but i crashed it after a couple of months, and now im saving up and back driving my moms car, which now she got a '04 Accord ex, is not bad, but i just need my own thing....
