Pretty much the same territory, 69-71. Lincoln Park Big Boys had 'em lined up all the way down Goddard road, both directions, especially when Detroit Dragway let out.
Lafayette,Indiana had 3 drive-ins ,Park and Eat in middle of town cross river to south end's Big Boy, back to Park and Eat then on to northwest Big Boy. had hills on the way to race up,cops were pretty cool, they did the same before becoming cops. Miss the good times, car broke everybody stop to see if could help. Used to run tank gas almost every night, good times met a lot of people that have ran into 30 years later not recognize them somehow car stuff comes up tell about cars you used to drive and you end up remembering there rides and think darn they look old compared to you.
Woodward Avenue in Michigan in the 60's. Before the Royal Oak Police cracked down on the drag racing. I saw guys unloading gassers off trailers and then raced them on Woodward.
You could see everything and get most everything on Woodward. I remember a gas war between stations and gas was 19 cents a gallon and they pumped it for you, checked the oil and washed your windshield!!!
Highland Street in Worcester, Ma
Main St- Houston Texas 1952
Charlotte MI early 80's.
Wore out the Klucks parking lot on Ecorse Rd in the late 70's early 80's, also used to run out to Telegraph and Gratiot ave, those guys were serious though didnt have any thing for them in those days
U.s. highway 20, it runs right through the middle of Rockwellcity. The loop used to be start at the car wash or the gas station. Then cruse the half mile to the Casey's gas station at the end. Good times...spent most of my paychecks in high school on gas every weekend.

Elm St in Manchester NH 1972-1981. Used to park at Zayre's parking lot.

Broadway in Portland Oregon. Why can I not find even one single picure of this online?
In my buddy's 62 T-Bird, 66 Fairlaine convertible or my Dads 68 Sport Sattelite or 70 Grand Prix. Good fun. Lotsa girls!
Main street in Silverton Texas it was one mile one way. Then when we parked it was the cob was where we goofed off. Nobody does it anymore.
Well, I'm going to do you all one better: Big Horn Avenue, Worland, WY (fire up your Google Earth to find that town) in the late '50's (especially 1957) during the peak of rock & roll. Back in the center of Wyoming, we didn't have the hottest cars in the world, but we did the best we could.....mostly glass packs, lowered, flatheads, chrome, etc. We had a couple of rich kids with '57 Chevy hardtop Bel Airs and '54 Fords. Wilson's Drive-In was at one end of Big Horn, railroad tracks at the other. Used to listen to the Texas Del Rio radio stations that had a lot of power and skipped signals clear up to us.
Mesquite Tx back in late 50's.......a little black 46 Ford Convert, later a 41 cad, love the good ole days
