First popularized in the late fifties, the act of “cruising” became a favored past time of America’s youth. Whether you were riding solo in your Pontiac GTO or making the rounds with friends in dad’s old station wagon, cruising was an iconic cult recreation.
Cruisin’ was much more than a social activity, it represented freedom. The open road was an escape frоm the frequent drama of a young person’s life. You would get into your car, hit the pavement and blare your favorite tunes while driving endlessly on a go-to strip or loop.
Some frequented places in the Pacific Northwest were the Renton Loop, Sixth Ave in Tacoma, Alki Beach in West Seattle and the Puyallup Loop. These were the places where teens would spend their precious weekend evenings… in the seventies, jamming to some hot new Zeppelin track, the sixties, it was The Beatles groundbreaking pop hits and the fifties, Elvis Presley’s controversial hip shaking jams.
You see, cruising was a full experience which evolved over the years but still held the same core values. Teens and twenty-somethings would show off their sleek, shiny rides back when cars were much more than mass-produced transportation devices. It was a status symbol, and during this time period it was all about American Muscle Classics.. you’d want to be seen revving up the engine of your beefy Mustang GT, Dodge Challenger or Chevy Camaro.
In fact, these iconic models are just as popular today as they were in the Summer of ’69. Although styles may have evolved throughout the years, American Muscle cars have always stayed true to their dignified build.
