    Cool Boy Racer Or Car Enthusiast????

    quick Question What Makes A Boy Racer Different From A Car Enthusiast? (cant Spell That Word For S**t)lol

    age?
    exhaust Noise?
    engine Size?
    driving Style?

    ANYONE HERE ADMIT TO BEING A BOY RACER?

    ps It Is Only A Question So No Need For Anyone To Get Arsy!

    the majority of people i consider to "boy racers" are young who drive under powered cars and fit body kits with woodscrews
    rags the car from cold etc

    imo a car enthusiast cares for the car and wouldnt put it in harms way

    My interpretation...

    Car enthusiast : someone with an interest in cars. Modifies cars to their taste. Might attend shows or whatever, might not, but basically, cars are their hobby & that's about the end of it.

    Boy racer: as above, someone who rags their car about. Doesn't even have to have an obscene bodykit either, it can be just a standard car. There's a lad around here with a 1.3 2001 Fiesta. Doesn't matter where he's going, he could be driving 10yds down the road, it'll have to be revved like crazy to get there. Constantly hanging off the bumper of the car in front like they think they're in F1 or Rally driving or something. An interest in cars like the enthusiast, but a d!ckhead with it - dangerous to other road users etc

    Probably because you're not asking anything specific about astra's. You're just asking about drivers in general

    enthusiasts enjoy cars & motoring. They may drive fast at times, they may modify cars.

    Boy racers think they are fast drivers but are usually dangerous drivers. Typical mods include large exhaust / loud music / ripspeed accessories & always lowered cars.

    Sorry to anyone on here with a tick against everything !!

    I reckon i would get labelled as one. Mainly because i have a stupidly loud/large exhaust and im young. Thats the only reasons though, i tend not to drive in the styles mentioned.
