Pretty cool for a fat azzed domestic considering it was a rice movie. Never saw the movie, hung out outside, the manager of the theater said we could drink beer on the grounds provided we kept it cool. (What was he thinking?) Long story short. We wont be invited back again. The last show let out, and we had the police called for laying out some incredible rubber. I seen it coming and got out early. Was a good night, chuckling over it all safely headed home in a very responsible manner.

Wow! That'* a ton of responses. But yeah that'* just what I figured- I've seen plenty of people try to drift and nothing looks good in a car that'* even close to this big.

But yeah, it'* not like I actually saw anyone do it, but some kid posted a youtube video about something called "Bonneville Drift." Nothing drifted, it was like a crappy attempt at a movie preview, but it just got me wondering if anyone ever did it haha.

And thanks for the warnings not to do it, but i've seen plenty of people do it and mess up pretty bad. Some youtube video shows a guy doing it in the snow and hitting a curb [that was covered with snow, so I guess he didn't see it] and it like completely destroyed his suspension and everything on one side.
