"All you need to get kids away from gangs is take them for a ride, hit some switches and tell them that if they stop f*****g around on the street they can build a car - that they can have all this happiness. Seriously. It's all it takes. Just one ride can reform someone. And then these clubs continue the support, and give the next generation counselling, protection, a skill and a car-club plaque, which is like a badge of honour. Keep them off the street, get them on the boulevard."
