    Default Went to a local Cruise last night

    I went to a local cruise last night in Stockport. Me, nearly 35 years old going to a cruise! Would you believe it! A young lad who lives on my street convinced me to go with him. I did feel a little out of place to be honest.

    I was quite impressed with the quality of cars in attendance though; there was everything from a 1.0 Fiesta to a new BMW M5. The quality of the driving left a lot to be desired as well.

    There was also plenty of police in attendance and they had one of the new Vectra traffic cars in attendance. I had a bit of a chat with the driver; nice chap.

    I don't think I'll be going back as it's not an 'official' one and to be honest I don't want one these 'young' drivers hitting my car. Anyone else been to a cruise, official or not?

    Well....er actually no... but almost

    We turned up at MIJ Performance in Walsall one evening to Pick Keiths car up and they forgot to tell us that they had hired the whole place to MAX POWER Magazine for a photo shoot.

    There were half naked women everywhere (wanna-be pornstars)... some of them were hideous..lol we had to laugh at it all, but it looked good fun...

    The hired DJ was getting hacked off as some of the cars had louder sound systems than he did... and he was wired to the mains electricity supply !!... that was funny as there was a stand off at one point... !!!

    However, as you say Alex, some of the cars were really good to look at... however, we were asked to join the cruise to Cannock Chase, but no.... Police Magnet if I've ever seen one !!

    ive been to a few cruises, a few years back now.
    a couple of legal ones and a few that werent.

    i agree about the quality of cars that go, some of they have had thousands of pounds thrown at them.

    theres always a few idiots that drive around like idiots, these are the people that residents and local people complain about , the stereo-typical 'boy racer'.

    I drove through one Tuesday night, we had been to Asda Fosse Park.
    In the bottom corner of the car park was what looked like the local max power cruise. Some cars were not too bad from what I could see.

    I didn't drive through with the sub turned up, but made sure the exhaust could be heard

    I've been to quite a few, but it does seem strange that no matter how nice I am, I never seem to be that popular.....?
    Maybe they don't like my nice refelective yellow and blue paintwork,
    mind you they don't seem to like the blue or silver paintwork on some of my other cars either!

    Default Notts

    It comes from somewhere round Hucknall on a Sunday night. As I'm going to work trying to get on M1 J27 at 2300hrs I have to join in or sit there for an hour as they bomb round and round with the Police slowing them down speeding them up...... Must admit there are some nice looking cars but when I go north later we always see the dogs on the hard shoulder waiting for the AA!!

    I've been to a fair amount of Cruises - being 22 an all.... ( I Fit into that young maniac category )
    There tends to be a Big Police Presence at Cruises, and IMO its a Good thing - it keeps people calm and Keeps the ones you dont want (i.e. the Uninsured ones) I have been to Some Organied Cruises - like ones at the Ace Cafe - and they are pure lunacy.

    There are a Lot of Nice Cars at Cruises - The last one I was at Had A Supercharged Honda NSX My god the Noise was Sexual....haha

    I've been to a few.....just that I was working at the time

    About 5 years ago, one of the 'max power' type mags turned up at a cruise and the 'reporter' and photographer were encouraging girls to sit of the bonnet of cars, which then burned out their tyres. All this on the carpark of a still open superstore.
    I had suitable 'words' with the reporter Their was a picture in the mag of me poking my finger in his face. (In a polite way of course)
