Street cruising is defined as people driving their cars slowly through the street bumper to bumper and showing off the cars, engines, styles, and people. The money that goes into the cars is enormous. If you are looking for a hobby that is inexpensive, stay away from this hobby. It is fun to just sit and watch these works of arts drive by. What started in the 50's and has continued for years. Cruising has been something that all generations have enjoyed. And the movie American Graffiti helped put the dream of cruising all across the United States.

The annual cruising has begun in Golden Colorado

Golden Colorado started their annual summer cruise nights last night and the sites were in the millions. There were cars that were priced from $20,000 up to and probably over six digit figures. Golden has long been a town that has enjoyed cruise nights. The Main Street is lined with people sitting with cameras, video cameras, artists painting hot rods, and lots of smiles as the car cruise by.

One of the best locations to sit and watch was the Golden High School parking lot. The cars would cruise by and have to slow down going around the curve and turn the cornerthe round about. The cruisers had to come to a stop and this made it easy for viewers to catch a better glimpse of their favorite car or cars. Of corpse that is not to say that other locations were not bad. In fact Main Street had a few hundred fans watching.
