Street Racing

Saturday, February 04, 2006
Check out this article over at CNN.com. Apparently some street racer got out of control during a race and ran his car into a health clinic, injuring dozens, some critically.

Well, that's certainly news - and not good news at that. But let's examine this article a little closer: the car was described as a "black Nissan ZX". That indicates (in all likelyhood) that it was either a late 80s-early 90s 300ZX (most likely, in my opinion), a 2001 or later 350ZX (not so likly), or an early 80s 280ZX. If you magnify the crappy photo on the website, it looks most like the back of a 300ZX. These were not slow vehicles.

But look at this:
Witnesses said the Nissan and a Lincoln Town Car were racing through a South Los Angeles business district when the Lincoln clipped the Nissan, sending it off course, police Lt. Paul Vernon said. The Lincoln drove off.
A Lincoln Town Car?!?!?

Who actually races a Town Car (great for limos and livery) in a car designed for speed? And LOSES?

EDIT: A year later, the links to the pictures of the cars were driving a ton of traffic to this site. In order to make the world a better place, I've changed the links to be Google Image Searches of the vehicles mentioned.
