Does anyone remember?

Hi all,

I remember back in the day, on a day like this, that anyone with a fly car or regular car would cruise downtown Toronto on Yonge St, at sunset until 3 or 4 am on the weekends, picking up chicks and showing off their rides.

What ever happened to the Yonge St cruise?

Think we could start it up again?

If I remember correctly, that was the purpose of the cruise, so we had time to pick up the Honeys!

I didn't say you should pick them up, but if you did, just check their I.D.

Did that last friday with an entourage of Gallardo, Maser, GTR3 RS, 911 Turbo, Cayman and an R8. All we got was bad road surface and lots of lights on Yonge. Took it from base of Yonge up to Bloor.
They really need to fix up the roads.
