Mulholland Drive Retro


Stumbled across some nice footage from the Mulholland Drive street racing scene over at Motoring Con Brio recently.

This is obviously deregulated, Reagan-era California car culture at its most rabidly irresponsible.

As you’ll see the footage is full of bad tashes, gee whizz street race philosophy and mainstream moral panic, and calls to mind the TV films and cop series that were being produced just at the bottom of the Drive at the time.

Dig the stack of failed cars at the bottom of dead man’s curve and the way that the Whale Tailed 930 allegedly defeats all comers.

Them were the days. Or were they?
