I used to go cruizin' and looking for races, actually in several towns. If I didn't find something the intrepid could have some fun with, then I'd find a really fast/expensive car and try to chase it for as long as I could. With the wagon, cruizin' is just driving around wasting gas.

Practially every day i go cruizin, even if its bad out. I spend a good $30-40 a week on gas, since i'm the one that drives everyone around (big ass car with a lot of room, but they all pitch in, so it's all good).

Don't race though, i used to, then realized that the 2.7 just isn't made to go fast. At all. In any conditions. I do a lot of drifting and sideways driving though, that's interesting to see

i rarely do, pretty much hardly ever, i hate driving and i do not have the time to waste just doing nothing. if i do go it is with someone else and they are driving their car, that way i can get homework done while someone else is wasting time

sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night, and just go out in my boxers and a pair of slippers just to go cruisin. There could be noone else on the road, just drive around and think about shit... one of my favorite things to do.

I used to cruize around town all the time. Sometimes just to pass the time, get my mind off thing, tho driving when im upset is a bad combo. Now i dont as often, cuz usually i want a place to go and what not, but everyonce in a while i go on a show off run, drive by's were particularly fun, till the cops got in the way too often.

I constantly go cruising, and meet up with Ottawa's fastest rides. We all shoot the shit at some large mall parking lot per say that's the spot for the night. Laugh at the ricers, then we all take runs down the roads just cruising around. Watching the ones with the fast rides launch. 2 12 second talons, a 12 second civic, z06, 13 second gt stang '02. a new mach 1 '03 stang etch. Very nice rides. Yeah when I first joined the forums I got ribbed for driving an Intrepid.

Heh. Try more like $35.

I don't go cruising, partly because I don't have the time or much of a place to do it around here, but mostly because I just don't want to.

What I do like to do is get out of the lab a little early on nice days and go a couple miles south of the city, to this nice twisty, sloping country road. It's about 15 miles long, and at the end, there's a 2-mile flat, straight stretch with nothing on either side but farm fields. That's fun...

yep quite often when I don't work weekends the girlfriend and I just hop in the Trep or her Neon R/T and drive for hours till we see somewhere different or good because of being there so much. We usually go to Niagara Falls, Chicago and Iowa as well as Wisconsin Dells (great place) quite a bit for weekends So gas get a little costly but so does motels depending where you stay...lol. Good thing there is family in Chicago and Iowa.
