So this past Saturday, me and the girl I've been seeing made a few laps in the stroker in old town to waste some time after we had got back from the mountains. For being the last Saturday night before college gets back in session, it was surprisingly quiet. But anyway, there was still a decent number of people cruising, so I waited for a few minutes in a parking lot, and joined in with the diesel group once they came around. There was only 4 or 5 of them, but it was better than nothing.

The SD was a 2000 7.3 6 speed that the guy claimed was all stock, although it was pretty quick. The other was a mid 2000's-ish Dirtymax, but I don't know what he had done to it. All I know is both of them asked me what I had done to my truck after I outran them. After that, no one else would line up with me :hehe:

Not trying to sound c-o-c-k-y, but I think I had one of ( if not the) fastest trucks up there that night. The lil lady was having a helluva time, I don't know if she had ever ridden in a truck as quick as mine. She got a kick out of it when I pegged the speedometer on a back road on the way home too :sly:

I saw two cars getting towed, hopefully that's not what they've resorted to now when they pull you over :eek:hnoes: I was watching my azz like a hawk, cause I hit almost 70 a few times, and that would probably get me a ticket straight to jail on that street! Thankfully, the lady had good eyes for the law as well. My radar detector also does a pretty good job. It has paid for itself wayyyy too many times to count now :D

Ohh they do indeed. And mine is just a cheap Radioshack one at that! And thats nuts... I actually saw very few cops on Saturday, thankfully! Its tough to contain yourself sometimes when you have 350 ish horsepower on tap and a pretty little lady at your side :D

Yeah, the imports around here love to meet up at McDonalds. I'm not quite sure why there, but who knows...

Cruising use to be BIG around here when my dad was in his 20s. They use to all meet at the mall (around 100 cars) then they got kicked out of there, and use an old county road. It had died off quickly.

I still cruise around, but usually just me and a buddy in my truck. Usually around the mall and campus. The roads blow around the mall and they are state roads.

That sucks. Cruising is still alive and well here, because it's a huge college town (CSU has like 24,000 students or something like that). But like red 97 said, the cops are trying real hard to put a stop to it!

Cause they can't afford to eat anything else after they spent all their money on the fart can exhaust lol.
:hehe: ain't that the truth!

I don't see whats wrong with the cruising, well until the speeding comes up. But West Lafayette is right across the river from Lafayette and it is a HUGE college station. Purdue University (about 40,000 students) lol

I don't see the harm in it either, aside from the street racing. You get tons if that on cruise nights, from the imports to the diesels.

I could see the issue with imports. Most of them could get ran over by the real toys.

here we used to have something at the local drag strip on Friday nights, called secret street. Basically any street vehicle, pay minimal fee per run, line up with what ever is in the other lane and see how good you are. good safe place to play and get a timeslip for proof.

^^ thats what fort collins needs. i wish they werent trying to kill it here but they did it in greeley and they did it in longment (towns close-ish to fort collins). i think they real issues are 1. gangsters that have decided they like to cruise and keep gats on them. 2. drinking and cruising:doh::doh:. 3. the kid in his manual transmission cummins that decides to put his bullydog on max and black out a 3 lane intersection. 4. and the idiots that decide they have to go all they past 90 miles an hour on a ******* city street:banghead: THAT is what makes it dangerous.... as long as it is away from where the pedestrians are, a little drag race is kindof only dangerous for the two cars involved, some cops used to turn their heads the other way. if people would just cruise without overdoing it... people might not be trying to kill it off. sorry to vent but cruising used to be so fun and cool....

I've never really seen hardly any gangsters cruising, I don't think that's the problem. I think racing has a huge part in it, especially since old town has so many pedestrains EVERYWHERE, and that college is a pretty heavily used road. The smoke I'm sure doesn't help either, although I've been guilty a laying down a nice fog a couple times... :look:
