What street/City did you cruise in High School?

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by 73super, Feb 5, 2010.

  1. McHenry Ave. in Modesto.

    '85/86 with my brother and older friends... and then '86-1990 (I think) when they closed it down.

    What a blast.

    Living in Carpinteria, Ca. 63-64, used to cruise State st. in Santa Barbara on friday and saturday night. I'll never forget the gray 55 chevy that ran a chain driven blower on a small block. He scared the hell out of me the first time he pulled up next to me at a red light. It sounded like a thrashing machine.

    Later moved back to Nashville, Tn, used to cruise the circuit around Music city to all the Shoney's Big Boys, also Church street and West End. Many great memories......

    In NWI we used to Cruise:

    the 4 lanes Broadway in Merrillville, IN from McDonalds on the south end to Burger King on the north in its last days 85-87

    2 lanes of Lincolnway in Valparaiso, IN from the West end at Old Court House Square to McDonalds on the East End 85-88

    2-4 lanes of Lincolnway in Laporte, IN from Burger King on the West end to The Bank on the East end up until 88-91 or 92.

    It was pretty much killed off after that.

    I had a Blue 70 Firebird with a Formula Hood in the Merrillville/Valpo Days, and a 72 TA 455HO/4spd in the LaPorte days....still have them....both not running and just sitting

    Early 80's cruised 2nd street in El Cajon - 70 Buick GS stage 1 and a 62 nova.
    Sometimes would go up to Valley Parkway in Escondido and went to Van Nuys Blvd in LA a couple times.

    Late 80's it was the Vons parking lot in Clairmont CA, then would race on old highway 15 in front of the Miramar airbase.

    Good times.

    I raced at Checkered flag in a 1934 Ford 1/2 ton in primer with only three drum brakes.......line had broken on the 4th, so my bud just plugged it....too stupid to realize I should have at least disconnected one more and just have the back brakes. A wicked pull!!! Raced a 442-light blue!
    Also cruised "The Gut" from Herfys hamburgers on the North end of Everett, to Herfys hamburgers on the South end of Everett in my 1969 "Screamin Urine" Mustang-my first car...and still have it too, matter of fact! Big "Gilette" 60 series tires , headers and glass packs, and tape deck! Spent all my pennies on Herfy burgers, I loved those years!!
