[after Steve's cornered]
Good run! Sharp through Sweeper, clean past Deadman's, a little sloppy through Grandstand, but I gotta tell you something, asshole. You are in violation of Section 148 of the Penal Code: Evading arrest. Section 22349 of the Vehicle Code: Maximum speed limit. Section 22350: Basic speed law. Section 23109B: Exhibition of speed.

I am currently trying to find this film on vhs. If anybody knows of it, or has a copy they would like to sell. I am willing to purchase it. Please email me with the details... about the movie, I saw it about 20 years back, right after it came out, I immediately identified with it, and has stayed with me. It is a real movie, about real street racing, before the days of neon and tuners. This film makes The Fast and The Furious look like The Slow and Ridiculous. In case anybody thought Dennis Hopper plays a goofy rogue character in Speed, they need to see this one (love his beater corvette in the movie). Like all car movies it is not inept to at least a little cheesy-ness. Although I would say it is a little more realistic than most.
