When my friend Jeff's dad took us to my first swap meet, he put the car in neutral and shut it off going down a hill. There was no traffic, it was his little game to see if he could clear the next hill. Ever since then, I realized that cars can be fun.
Few weeks later he showed me one of his 30's coupes do a burnout just like Jeff's go-kart. As soon as I knew cars were capable of doing such things, I wanted to know more.
