Nissan homologated their Pulsar hatchback into an all-wheel drive, five-second monster in the early 1990s. Sadly, that car was never sold here; but that hasn’t stopped one rabid fan from importing one.
Falling in love with a car can have long term, sometimes devastating effects. Chris secured his love affair when he bought a 1-of-12 orange Viper TA, succeeding at fulfilling a childhood dream.
Today’s car destroying, high speed franchise is Fast & Furious. We like to think we could all be the next Dominic Toretto—have you seen the parking lot of a movie theater after a Fast & Furious movie? It’s hilarious.
