Lifestyles of the pampered, privileged progeny of famous parents; meet Nick Hogan, the Hulkster’s kid.
The shameful and dangerous driving history of Nick Hogan was illuminated in a telling interview a month ago in Rides Magazine.
Sunday night he smashed up his Toyota Supra while trying to race another car.
The car accident put both Nick and his passenger John Graziano in the hospital.
Nick is okay, but Graziano is in very critical condition.
In Nick’s own words from the article: The Hulk’s son, Nick Hogan, Drives his Whips like he ain’t got nothing to lose but grip.
“Hulk’s youngest maniac became Dodge’s youngest professional drift driver. But Nick’s been in the game for years. Matter of fact, the 16-year-old VH1 star of Hogan Knows Best knew his way around a clutch before reaching his 10th birthday. A modifying maven, he recently added what he calls his “breadwinner,” a limited-edition 800hp supercharged Dodge Viper, to a convoy of nine that already includes two 700-plus-horsepowered Toyota Supras and an additional 550hp Viper. The streets ain’t safe no mo’.”
The writer of the piece asks Nick to elaborate on his need for speed.
“The yellow Supra and yellow Viper are pussy magnets for sure. I mean, the green and the silver appeal more to men, ’cause a guy knows what he’s looking at and will drool over it. But girls see the yellow, and panties start dropping off,” bragged Nick.
Nick talked about his atrocious driving record.
“Let’s just say I have a terrible driving record…In my silver Viper, I was driving from Miami to Tampa. I got pulled over going 107 [mph] and the guy let me off. He’s like, ‘Hey, I know who you are, just keep going, ya know.’ Dude, I got back on the road and two minutes later I get pulled over going 113 [mph].
Another highway patrol from the same county said, ‘I just heard on the radio that my buddy pulled you over and let you go. I’ma let you go this time. It’s your second warning. You get pulled over again, you’re probably going to go to jail.’ Three minutes later, [I was] doing 123 [mph] in a 50 [mph zone]. The guy is like, ‘Hey, I just heard you got pulled over twice in the last 10 minutes. I got to write you a ticket.’ “
Nick on his feelings about gas conservation and being conscientious of emissions:
“…Driving a Viper, I have to fill up [on gas] every 50 miles. I’ll get on the bridge and smash the gas, and just as fast as I watch the speed wind up, I can watch the gas gauge drop.
