On this day in 2001 The Fast and the Furious came out. Who would’ve thought 18 years later we’d have 8 of these movies and a spin-off coming up with at least 2 more sequels green-lit!! THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS came out 18 years ago today and we’re still living our lives a quarter mile at a time. Currently watching the first Fast and Furious movie with my family. That’s 18 years of Fast and Furious 2001-2019 Thank you for the memories signature. There’s a scene where Brian is driving and holding up a map, and my little brother asks “Why are they looking at a map instead of using GPS?” Hahaha. Crazy to think there were no smart phones and GPS just 18 years ago.

“According to its “black box,” on a clear, warm summer morning last week, a black 2018 Mustang driven by a male 18-year-old reached 102 miles per hour, then began breaking hard before striking mom and baby, sending them both flying through the air. The car was allegedly racing alongside another car, both swerving in and out of traffic, seemingly acting out in real time a scene from the movie “Fast and Furious.” 102 miles per hour. Senseless. Tragic. Heartbreaking. Illogical. Those are just a few of the words being used to describe this horrific tragedy that has saddened and shocked an entire community. But what about the word “preventable?””
I own an auto dealership. I had a very fine tuned 98 Mustang GT with a NOS package. This car could go a quarter mile in 14 seconds. It was stupid fast and barely street legal. Now a father and his freshly turned 16 year old son come in and they want to test drive the car. I asked who is going to be driving. Dad said the son. I told him No Way. He said okay I will drive. 18 years of Fast and Furious 2001-2019. Now I am not an idiot and I know that he can just pull around the corner and let the kid drive. So I said awesome. Your son can wait here and I will go with you. He was upset and said he did not understand why I did not want to let the kid drive the car.
