    I tried to watch once. The races happenes around 3 am. We went early anticipating a show. It took a while because cops were around & racers had to negotiate with them. Some car owners would have designated drivers. The prizes were often money, sometimes the cars & I heard that there are times the GF's were included in the pot, though I'm not so sure how true it is.

    yeah gf ano lang joke lang. Maybe it happen once or 2 times pero halos karamihan joke lang. Usually at 10 pm umpisa ang drag race then if may pulis they go to another area or wait till 3 am.

    I was still very young at the time & tagged along with my older brothers. Wala pang fuel injection, turbocharger or performance chip. Performance upgrades will usually be side draft carburetors (either single or dual), electronic ignition, racing cams, limited slip differentials, koni shocks & stiffened coil springs ( some were leaf springs at the back, like the Dodge Colt 1600 cc engine). Cars were rear wheel driven, so the trunk was weighted to improve traction. Cars then were mostly the Ford Escort RS 1600 or 2000 (a dream car, which I very rarely see nowadays), Dodge Colt, Mitsubishi Lancer, Opel Manta, Datsun B180, Toyota Corolla & Corona. Displacement were limited to 2.0 since that was the Martial law period & the only people allowed to own bigger cars were Bong Bong & Marcos cronies. There were sleepers too. I remember that there used to be an owner type jeep that was heavily modified & used to beat the best of them. Anyway, those were the stories of the day.
