Anyone interested in this.

Probs flogging a dead horse, but worth a shot.

no offence, but in my honest opinion, cruising is pretty much dead. I blame police presence.

To be fair the number of convoys on the flyer shows it isn't dead.

Granted it isn't as big as it was but it's still going strong, a lot of the problem is people not being bothered.

Yes again the police do play a large part in this, but not every copper is out to stop cruisers, infact a lot of them are into cars and know quite a bit (auditastic is one).

I don't expect everyone to be falling over themselves to attend but would be nice to have some of the old spirit back.

The problem with this one is that being on the 27th, a lot of people will be visiting family, parties etc. Its also quite short notice.

Id be interested myself, but Im still in the shade as to whether my Alfa will be sorted for then. Its time for me to retire the Micra, so all is resting on le new car.
Also, I myself will be in London visiting family from boxing day to god knows when, so may not be able to attend.

Cruising is dying, because people are losing interest/contacts with people currently doing so. Not as many new people to fill the boots of the OAPs...


Good luck with the numbers though Cali, looks like could be a goodun. thumbsup

It's only short notice cos i didn't post it up earlier i've know about it for 4 months, through "contacts"

I thought Joe would of posted it on here earlier but seeing as he didn't i thought i might as well post it up.

I might end up going, but i reckon the people id be going with who say their going would probably back out or just not bother, so im doubting ill be there.

Noone seems to be bothered about 'cruising' anymore. You know, just going out in your car for the sake of. Its just excuses after excuses. Even if theres the risk of noone being there when you arrive it doesnt matter cause you had fun getting there. It seems people are lacking that atmosphere these days.

I blame the police who can ruin a perfectly safe gathering quite quickly, but it is their job. Bad organisation too doesnt help. Im sure its not easy though.

Im not having a go at people on here, its everyone really.

But i do reckon mid christmas is a bad call on this one.
