I'm not far behind you at 56. I remember the spot along Rt.50 where the Metro station is but I thought that was a bust waiting to happen. Rt 32 was a hot spot for some big races. V Street N.E. was a hot spot. People often wondered how the cops seemed to know when they were racing down there and didn't know their loud exhausts were setting off the warehouse alarms. And you're right about cruise nights but we are all so spread out now that we have to rely on computers and titles to get more than three people together. But today or yesterday we have most of new generation beat. I see some of them meeting, like we used to, and their idea of cool seems to be momma's hand-me-down Honda four door with a big tail pipe extension and a trunk full of speakers blasting gangsta rap.
