The Game what we all play in the street/strip
The Game is what we spend all our hard earned money on.
The Game is muscle car vs muscle car, Money vs brain cell.
The Game is what we risk bleeding fingers, burned knuckles, stripped bolts, and sleepless nights for. It is the competition. It is the power, the adrenalin rush, the chance to become legend, the glory of prestige, the thrill of victory, and the fun we share with other Gamers.
The Game, we all play it, one way or another, we all play it. Embrace it or sell the car.

Yep, two of us for sure are in B.C. Zippy's near 100 Mile House, and I'm over on the rock up in Port Mc Neill. The local to you F-Body club that I know of is Vancouver F-body. I had a link somewhere to their website. If you can't find it, PM me and I'll look it up for you. Also there's a lot of activity over here on the island if you make it across the water this summer. BTW, welcome to Firebird Nation.
