I had to work today, so I decided to drive. This car attracts so much attention I love it. I just wish the summer wasn't over so I could cruise some more. This winter is gonna suck I can't wait till next year!

I know what you mean. When winter hits in Southern California and the temperature dips into the high 60's sometimes, it's like a general funk descends on everybody. Cruisers have to have a Maggie whine going or else people just won't pay attention.

Worse still: I remember the Christmas of 2003 when I got a bad sunburn and didn't want to cruise at all...

Funny! Yep, it's hell out here in SoCal in the winter. Now I'll admit, the Garden state has it all over us when it comes to drag strips, they really care and prep the hell out of their tracks, I'm always seeing numbers out of Jersey that make me green with envy. The local tracks here have no idea how to prep a track, and that's a fact.

But then again, it's not like I'd trade Swaying palm trees lit up with Christmas lights just for a good track.

"Oh the weather outside is delightful,
The sun is never frightful,
Let it shine let it shine let it shine..."

I was just rethinking a point I have always said: The south has unbearable heat and hurricaines, the west earthquakes, the midwest tornadoes. I'll take a foot of snow anyday over those natural disasters.

I just love this car to death. Everything about it makes me feel good. Besides work I have no other social life besides on here, I guess thats what growing up is all about. I love when you want to make a little niose, step on the gas into a turn, or just blow the doors off some fart boxed ricer.

Tthe attention is something I never expected though. People point, ask you questions, and kinda just look at me funny (I look like I'm 12 driving a caddy) but they dont know this aint there dad's Cadillac.

I was watching a show on muscle cars the other day. The host defined them as being a or the smallest body style car with the biggest motor crammed in there. I definately think the V classifies itself under there. Besides the sports cars, there are really no more coupes. One or two exceptions (the GTO, Vette, Porsche, Ferrari etc) out there. There is no more typical Trans Am or Camaros out there. Even the Gto is a slimmed down compact looking thing. The rage now is sport sedans, or luxury speed. Every company makes a four door with a go fast attitude, ours just happens to be the American V8 that could definately hold its own out there amongst the competition.

I agree with you! Same situation here in Michigan. But.......once in a while during the winter, when the roads are COMPLETELY DRY!!!!! you can still go out and "circulate" the fluids in 'er......:devil:

(Spring is "just around the corner).....LOL.

Cheers:alchi:

HA HA HA HAAA!!! We haven't had a major earthquake in over 10 years! Years of lovely winters since then. Beautiful, warm, car driving winters! And it could be many, many more years before...

Hey, where's that shaking coming from? Dammit...

Hang on, it's OK. I'm in Newark...

Wow. Only if Newark came remotely- it never will, or ever was a quarter of as nice as the post card wrongly advertises. If you drive down Ferry st, its great for cruises & Ave P is for drag racing. I've never gone there in the day though (ave p). Thats the type of place mofia bodies disappear. I swear, all junk yards, swamp, and oil.

Snow is at the 6500 foot level in Utah right now. I'm at 4300. Winter time does have some real beautiful drives. Check out my avatar. That is on top of Logan Pass on a warm spring day.
