    Back in the 60's there was no shortage of places to cruise in Portland, Or. It just depended on whether you cruised to pick up chicks, or set up a race.
    We cruised downtown on Broadway for socializing, and for eating/cruising it was Yaw's in NE Portland, Scotty's Drive-in on Sandy Blvd. or the Speck on 50th and Powell.
    If you wanted to get a good race going you cruised 82nd Ave. as that's where most the serious races took place, or were set up. Some great racing at Delta Park long before it was a legitimate drag strip. Every Tues. night until the cops showed up and told us to break it up and go home! :)
  3. May Co. Mall in N. H'lywd was hugely popular on Fri-Sat nights

    Well my best friend Mike & I cruised Liberty Rd , Reistertown Rd , Rt 40 in Catonsville , Marrriottsville Rd and all the side streets that we could find the women on ! We drove around in my 69 Dodge Super Bee drinking Budweiser and listening to Led Zeppelin ! Had some street racing along the way as well and ran across some lonely women in their cars too !
    This was all in Baltimore County , MD. We also went into Balto. City because the brothers couldn't tell how old we really were so we go served that way then got the hell out of that bar ! We used to all go to the Drive-in on Saturday evening either at the RT 40 drive in or the Glen Burnie drive in
    Those were the best times !

    HWY hunert, or formally known as South 108th Street in West Allis, Wisconsin... I cruised it mid to late 1980's. Cops really put the kibash on cruising since then. Nothing now days but a few brave ricers and boom cars.

    I heard Capitol Drive was the cruise spot of the 50's and 60's... Kits Drive-in is still there... neighborhood isn't what it used to be though.
