here are movies that make you want to drive really fast.
Driving movies are the best. Especially ones that involve car chases and street racing. When Fast and the Furious came out in 2001, my buddies and I all became hooked on street racing and cars. Suped-up Japanese cars were always our favorite. Our hometown was full of guys who loved their American muscle cars like Chevy Camaros, Dodge Chargers, Ford Mustangs, etc… My group of guys was more into the Toyota Supra’s, Mazda RX-7’s, Nissan SkyLine GTR’s, and Mitsubishi Eclipse’s.
Basically, every car that was featured in The Fast and the Furious besides Dom Torreto’s muscle car, we wanted.
The movie came out when I was 15 years old so I had 2 years of waiting and waiting and waiting until I got my license. Now, I worked as a busboy since I was 13 years old so I had some decent money in the bank. One of my neighbors had this really sports car and since I was 8 years old, I always wanted this car. It was my dream car! That car was the Mitsubishi 3000 GT. I turned 17 and had enough money to buy my dream car. I was driving around in a bright red 1993 Mitsubishi 3000 GT and I felt like a king. I used to race this car on the highway all the time and when there were any local street races, I would race my car in those. Fast forward 2 years, this car was a complete money pit. I was so caught up in having this car that I never did any background checks on the car. The car was on a tow truck at least 20 times in 2 years.
It’s been 20 years since I first had that car and even though it was a piece of junk, I miss it every day. I miss the looks that people gave me when I drove by. I have been happily married for 4 years now but I do miss the attention that girls gave me because they wanted to ride in that car. Well, maybe I was dreaming that last part but still, it was a good time.
Since The Fast and the Furious came out, I have been a car junkie and whenever a new driving movie comes out, I must see it.
Here is a list of some of my favorite movies that make you want to drive fast!
