Back in the day..... makes me feel old to say that :(

I remember the first time i drove this car! I had just gotten out of Juvenile detention and hadn't drove in 18 months. So needless to say i was ready to jump behind the wheel of a car i had owned for a little over a year but yet to touch! I remember my brother jumping in and me killing it a hand full of time in the driveway and just as my mom was walking up to the car with a look that said "Maybe we can try again later" my legs remembered their jobs and i got it! Tearing out of the driveway sideways and i kept it in a fishtail jamming into 2 and then third grinning ear to! Right after i got it straightened out i looked at my brother and he said something along the lines of "i was wondering about ya for a second" well i cruised all over the old dirt roads around our place and got out on someblack top and laid a little rubber. And finally i come to a stop sign and it was time to really gun it. I remember telling my brother pretty much that and he said that the V6 wasn't the punk i thought it was, i just laughed cause after all my first truck was Big block ford and this was tiny v6 chevy... no balls right? Wrong. I tached it up to around 5 grand and dumped the clutch in first jerking the wheel to the left , well it spun the tires pretty good launched forward and the ass end stayed loose, but i just stayed on it since i was going in the general direction i wanted, shifting into second set it sideways aiming me at the right ditch i got nervous stabbed the gas again and tried straightening out but i hooked too hard left, aiming me at a mailbox and a tree line i turn a little less towards the right again and gunned it as i took to the ditch. Some how i managed to go from the nose of the car going head on for the mailbox sitting on a 4x4 to my back driver side tire hitting it (Thank god the tires stuck out just a little bit) well i wasn't out of the woods yet cause it was still lacking traction... but i had got it back on the road! So i slammed hard on the brakes and cranked the wheel all the way to the right trying to just swing my ass end around and point the car back towards the house. Well i gunned it a little to soon and just did a donut, but i came back around and i let off enough to start heading in the right direction! This all transpired in a few seconds but it felt like minutes. So i raced home, stopping short of the house and pulled my car in the silo field. When i walked into the house mom asked where my car was. After i told her where it was and why she just laughed and said " You haven't been home an hour and already breaking the law!
