I'm surprised McDonalds don't take more advantage of it. "Modded cars get some Nuggets free".

"Nuggets for Nuggets offer" wink

Christ knows,im guessing its been around ages,"cruising" has changed a lot over the years and all generations do it weather they think they do or not

define "cruise" a meet,a gathering of likeminded car enthusiasts

Old people with triumphs meet in the country to show of their babies while they smoke pipes and have picknicks

Young people sit around car parks and eat maccies and talk dirty shite all night

"cruise" as in driving

Old people go for a drive round the country roads with the top down in their MGB smoking their pipe la la la

Young people do lap after lap of the same block around the nightclubs in the town,or speed around the main roads


MAX POWER increased the popularity of modifying cars and atttending shows tenfold tho
