    Providence R.I.:
    We used to cruise Broad street in my 57' Chevy, and if we had enough gas money we would continue on to Warwick Avenue. In that 5 mile length you could usually find all kinds of Gals... in any color!
    Just watch yourself around Downtown after 2:00am...."She" may be a "He!"

    I was in the Nomads back in the 60's cruised Hawthorne, the Witch stand, big donut in Englewood and the A&W on Hawthorne....Great times
     
  15. "Milliken" in Ontario, California. In the early 90's we had a full 1/4 marked off on Valley Blvd. Hot Rod even did an issue with some of the "un-sanctioned" tracks across the U.S. A couple of my buddies cars were on the cover. The cars got faster, even the rice burners, and the participants seemed to get a little less intelligent. Eventually some people got killed. The cops started to crack down big time.
    I sure miss the days of trailer rides, sponsors covered in tape, hanging the front ends and rocketing down the road. Nothing like the smell of race gas and dairy farms. Both are gone now :(

    Early 60's Cheektowaga NY,Union Rd. by Airport Plaza and across the street there was a Henry's Hamburger joint 10c hamburger and a lunch bag of fries for 50c.We'd cruise down to the new Holiday Showcase where the car hops would serve up your order (no 10c hamburgers there) after you placed the order from a drive up parking space that had a speaker to place the order.The street racin was out on Aero Dr.(by the airport) or downtown Bflo. on Ohio St.

    1965 - Wisconsin Ave. downtown Milwaukee Wednesday and Friday nights. No businesses were open except Marc's Big Boy. Just a lot of cars doing stoplight drags. Drove 20 miles to "bop the ave" for ten blocks.
