That's pretty amazing! I mean, how did they clear the streets for him to do this? You hardly see any pedestrians or cars anywhere else. And Ken Block is just awesome!

love it! I know someone who used to work on Ken Block's team ~

Ken probably donated a huge amount of $ to SF to get the streets cleared.

... yes you're right... but if I did the exact quote it would not have fit my reply. Who was the actor who said it and what year did the movie come out on the big screen?

100 points - first you need to visit Northern California!

Tsk Tsk Tsk using quotes ie. "it's a whole can of wuppass" and then misquoting is infelicitous. Its a good thing google ignores grammar. Oops now I'm "drifting".


Quiz #2 at 3:36 he loses a piece off the car. Any guesses what it was? (You can have my old stick shift as I am getting a real long one like his so I can drift)
