    Whittier Blvd 1968-1973. It used to start at Colima and you'd flip a u-turn at Painter until the cops closed it down and forced everyone to drive a mile to get back into the lanes.

    Drove everything from a Kaiser Frazier to a '70 Chevelle SS 396 to some VWs and Brit cars to boot. A little bit of eveything.

    Met my wife at Bob's Big Boy Feb 15th 1973. Coming up on 40 years.

    US-31 in Greenwood, Indiana 1964 to about 1970. Jerry's Restaurant and the Kitchen Drive-in on US-31 and the Dog N Suds downtown. Used to see Dickster there in his '65 Comet Hi-Po... If nothing was happening we would sometimes go to Indy west side to the Pole or east side to Al Green's. The Kitchen and Jerry's are long gone, but the Suds still hosts a cruise-in every Saturday in Summer.

Federal Blvd. was the spot for drag racing during the week. Saw the first flat head with a 4 barrel 1958. Gas was 30 cents a gallon. That was bitchen fun back then.
    In the 60's it was Mc Kinery in Modesto.

    Riverside down past the 2nd hand junk store [had a monkey in a cage] and over a couple blocks to central and up to Bobs drive in resturaunt...hang a bit and back to Central..
    I bought my 57 Pontiac at M&M motors [off the back row] in medford on leave in '68. Put some chromies on it, jacked it up a bit and slid a 389/4 speed into it...cruised Medford and Portland both...and The Dalles [my home town] with that car.

  26. Garland road, Northeast Dallas, mid 60's.
    South on Garland road to the spillway at White Rock lake, turn around, North to Charco's, through the parking lot across the street to the Prince of Hamburgers.
    Sunday at White Rock lake was like a small Goodguy's every weekend in the summer.
    South on Peavy to the Dairy Queen at Lakeland and Ferguson.
    Street racing was hot and heavy around the Casa Linda shopping center. Lots of muscle cars, a few nice rods. By 65-66 the muscle car was dominating the scene.
    I'm always surprised at the number of folks I went to school with that still live in the old neighborhood.

    Cruised on Main Street, Newark, DE in the late 70's in a 69' Camaro SS. Street Raced on Elkton Road outside Newark, DE and late night on Front Street, Philadelphia, PA when dragsters used to sneak out of trailers and the crowd stood on the median strip!
  30. Home of Shiner Beer, Shiner, Texas, cruised in my 55 Chevy, and sometimes I would sneak out Dad's full house flatty 46 Ford PU. Did some riding in Gonzales, Yoakum and Victoria occasionally. Constable told us we could drag race as long as it was out of town. I was the only one rumbling through town 11:30 pm after work at Circle K.
