car cruise rant

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by mrchevrolet2, Jul 30, 2013.

  1. Tell 'm chili!
  2. You know the one "cruse" I go to has limited parking maybe 50 cars.They tell you where to park and the only way a spot is saved is if someone has just completed thier car.It really cuts down on all the bull shit and bitchin. -Fat Chico
  3. Correct, but I don't bitch about it and would expect the same! I only bitch about "donks" and their obnoxious ways.
  4. Park elsewhere and walk in, then?
  5. Bwahahaha!

    I'm going on what a couple people said that supposedly counted. I've questioned that myself but they insisted they counted. The K-Mart lot was loaded up and a lot of cars were parked back along side the K-Mart going to the theater (which aren't really parking spaces). You also have to account for those who left early and the late comers that took their places.

    did you just learn a new word?
  8. These power parkers are the types of people that have an inferrior complex and buy into the hobby . They know absolutely nothing about building a car but they want the whole world to see what their money has bought them . People need to relax and blend in . If your merits a lot of interest dont worry word will get out and people will come in droves to see your creation . I personally dont give a damn and walk rigth past the power parkers even if it is a beautifully painted and detailed car . Its attention seekers needing all the glory to make their pitifull lives more bearable . Of course this is just my opinion !!! What do I know ??
  9. We call them "one man shows"- out comes the board with all the details (done by a signwriter of course) propped up on the bumper, The trunk is left open with every doo-dad and geegaw that has the make of their car on it, the back seat is full of more tacky crap, and then the annoying full-blast music. I saw one guy do this at a shopping centre at about 11 in the morning.(no cruise-in happening, just people going to K-mart)! Must be a Nigel No-mates!

    I don't get. There is a cruise in that starts around 4:00 and guys with cars come in around 5:00 or 6:00 and want a good spot. Believe me, I am no power parker. If those guys got there early and saved spots for their buddys, I park a little further out. No sence in staring a ruckus.

    I'm well aware, but yet not excited enough about them to use it several times in the same thread.

    To each his own, I can find another space. I think saving spaces is BS, especially if none are available elsewhere. I'm also not one to give attention to those that are blatantly begging for it.

    Psychological experiment:
    Go back to one of the cruises with the spot savers, walk up to a stranger, and tell them what happened here. Then ask if that sort of thing happens on the discussion boards they frequent. See what kind of reaction you get. Come back here. Discuss.

    Just move closer the junk "saving" the space, and park. This exists, and continues, because you tolerate it. Put it to an end.

    For kicks, leave a few empty beer cans and some fake puke in front of their lawn chair. Just a suggestion from a former power puker.
  19. So tell me, a show is held at an eatery, a guy brings his wife out early to eat. They came early because they have elsewhere to go. They get a spot right out front, are they power parkers ??

  21. That's pretty much why I stopped trying to go to this one. It used to go to 7:30-8:00 now they're all leaving by 6. By the time I get off work and drive out everyone's gone.
  22. Yes, I think it is like that everywhere.

    You save a spot by parking in it! Not with a lawn chair, cone, or crime scene tape. When i see this sort of thing in a spot that i want to park in I just move it and park. No one has yet been ready to physically defend the spot they are saving.

    LMAO good for you :cool:
  27. Yes this is power parking ! They knew the show would be held at this establishment and that the other off topic cars would soon leave or be asked to park outside of the show perimeters leaving their car in the spot that they wanted and to be seen in . If they parked somewhere that they know would be somewhere in the middle of the display area and just blend in with the other enthusiasts then no that is not power parking .
