    As for best friend.... Yes. He's my best friend. We were supposed to be at his house and not running around the metro at night.

    It's 6-7 hours. Back then, there was only EDSA and the South Expressway. I can't remember the first leg very well except I was scared because of the deep trouble I'd be in if I got caught. But, I remember being on EDSA walking on a bridge across a river. Then, we reached that part near Assumption School. We used to visit there and ogle the pretty girls. So, I'm kinda familiar with the place.

    I can remember next reaching Magallanes (the QUAD theaters were still there) and then walking along the high ramp turning left and headed south. There was no sidewalk. We walked along the concrete barrier, hoping no car would hit us. Not much to worry because the road was deserted. Hard to imagine. But, that's what it was like back then. Once we headed south, the MIA perimeter fence was next. We can see various jet airliners landing and taking off. after that, there was nothing but grass fields all the way to Alabang.

    I watched the races a few times. By the early 80's, the cops weren't as hard in enforcing the curfew. One time after watching a race, we somehow ended up at a bar near UST. We got stopped at a checkpoint. The cops were armed. But, one cop took a long good look at all of us, shook his head, and told us to drive safely home.

    He probably knew where we've been considering my friend's Celeste had a throaty exhaust from the headers.

    I remember as a newbie, I mistook headers for fedders. That friend set me straight.

    "Headers, not Fedders. Fedders is an air conditioner."

    Alabang and Santa Rosa scenes fizzled out a few years ago. Too much police presence.

    -

    There are still some wild drags that occur in the provinces, though... out where there are no police or people.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    Was there 85 to mid 86

    We (my kumpare and I) raced in a beat up 1972 super bug with a secret sauce engine and 4" diameter steel pipe for rear suspension. Did a total of 4 races back then.

    Man, the memories of a carefree youth hahaha !!!
