    The Levttown Parkway in Pennsylvania
    And of course the Jersey Shore loop (before it was Snookieized :confused:)

    from Tyler, TX

    Tyler, TX, mid to late 1980's, Broadway from McDonalds close to the loop to down town around the square and back was the standard cruise.

    There were a few tri-5 Chevys that I can remember but other than that everything was non HAMB friendly... Mostly muscle car era stuff and some late model cars here and there. I was in a '68 Mustang back then.

    We would "cruise" up and down 4th street in Santa Rosa. We'd make a u-turn at Farmers Lane and back again. If we got hungry we would stop at "The Scarf and Barf", actually know as "Eat and Run". A little drive-in with 15 cent hamburgers and 10 cent coke.

    Winnipeg Manitoba
    Portage avenue was the primary cruise scene. We used to cruise west up to the A&W at Polo Park mall. then cruise back after a root beer. Back then if you wanted to sit and watch you could pull into the Polo Park mall and sit there all evening. Today they have security and throw you out.

    Sunday afternoon cruising back in the 70's and 80's was best at Kildonan Park. Long slow drive around with tons of street parking. Pretty cool back then until the morons doing brakestands got it all stopped for many years

    Currently Winnipeg has a great cruise scene with the Regent avenue Tavern United and the Grant Park Pony Corral hosting parking lot cruises sunday evenings

    Late 60,s early 70,s, 4TH Street, Louisville Ky, cruise to the library, then back to Kingfish, (a local restaurant and chick hookup). The local hot am radio station (WAKY) was on 4th street with the dj,s sitting in front of a glass window facing 4th. On the weekends it was wall to wall both lanes, beer bottles lining the center lane, usually took about an hour if I recall, to cruise one way, (thats what my left leg felt like holding my clutch pedal down anyway), ah, them were the days.............

    Between the White Huts in Toledo Ohio.

    Loop through the Colony Hut (where the normal kids hung).

    Then north on Upton to the Sylvania Avenue Hut where the BUILDERS hung (great rides, good welds, smooth lead, but not the quickest).

    Then west to the Sylvania/Secor hut where the younger kids hung out.

    Back again to the Colony Hut where we felt at home and could pick up races.

    early '80s Syracuse, NY. we cruised Erie Boulevard hung out at the McDonalds. street raced on Pepsi rd, don't know its real name. or on Northern Blvd, and our favorite was 81S just south of the city, if the law showed up you could scoot to the next exit and get off right at the Indian reservation. man those were good times. you couldn't get away with so much of what we did now!

    You probably passed by my dad at some point...he had a candyapple red '55 Chevy custom in '57, followed by a '58 Impala (no idea what it looked like...think it stayed mostly stock) and a '60 Impala. He lived in Gastonia. I still stop at R.O.s BBQ everytime I go through there!

    Bob's on Whittier Blvd, usually in my '53 Stude, occasionally with Randy Dubb in his '42 Willys gasser. Seems most of the racers were on Whittier, most of the custom cars did Harvey's Broiler in Downey. This was '63-'66.
