From drag racing clubs to pure aficionados of cars in every form, the Car Culture has captured converts, that would seem to spell doom for the fundamentalist Islamic proponents in Iraq. It is entirely possible to be a gear head and Islamic, but waging jihad on the country who makes the car for which you hold a form of metallic passion just doesn't make sense!


The cars range from the Nisan ZX, to the BMW's Mustangs, Corvettes and Toyota's, but they all have in common the paint jobs, and motor head parts to go fast. Going fast can be more than just a thrill in a country where it seems easier to pick up a few RPG's (rocket propelled grenade) than a a new 500 watt bass woofer.

' But in the Wild West of modern-day Iraq, even carjackers need to watch their step. Hisham Ghulan and Abdel Nasser recently eluded would-be thieves with the same trick of jumping the median and escaping against traffic.

"We went home and got weapons and came back to look for them," Hisham Ghulan said, "but they were gone."'

Wow, look at that, culturally-sponsored male urges to behave and/or display violently can be channelled! It's almost like SCIENCE! :)
