got this out of a local paper, thought it was pretty funny!! for those who know what Gratiot is!!

GRATIOT
Kickin' it up and down gratiot
THE RIGHT WAY TO CRUISE

People have been cruising Gratiot for decades. For most, the main objective is to pick up babes/dudes. Sound lame? Cruising Gratiot can be highly entertaining if you know the rules.

YOUR GROUP: It's simple: Cruise with the same sex. It's the only way to get the full attention of the opposite sex.

YOUR CAR: If your car is hot, it gives you free range to be an a$$hole on the road. Cutting people off, squealing your tires and driving too fast are all acceptable if you have a nice ride. If your car sucks, you'll have to get by on your looks. And we all know that's not gonna happen.

YOUR TUNES: You must play your music (preferably commercial hip-hop) as loud as possible 'cuz you're in competition with everyone else's system. Whoever's the loudest gets the most underage girls!

YOUR CHANCE: Once you find a car full of hotties, get them to pull into a parking lot so you can, you know, talk or whatever.

YOUR SPOT: Prime cruising area is from 10 Mile to 13 Mile. Anywhere else, its usually just people trying to get somewhere, so don't bother.

YOUR FUTURE: You don't ever want to have a real relationship with someone you met while cruising. Dating someone you met while cruising Gratiot is worse than meeting someone on the internet. Gratiot babes/dudes should be used for one-night stands only.



i thought that could give us michigan folks a good laugh. i'll add in a few things though. DON't pull into a parking lot and sit around, unless you want a HUGE roseville loitering ticket!! and also, prime crusing is 10 mile to 12 mile. No one goes to 13 unless they are heading home. 10 to 12 is "the loop".

i have the article taped to my fridge cause its so funny. i live at 12 mile, like 1/2 a mile from Gratiot. My brother lives at 32 mile road, in Romeo, and my cousins all live in New Baltimore, and thats all they do is cruise Gratiot. they must be jealous that i can leave and be home in 2 minutes. and they have a 1/2 an hour drive or more to get home. :lol2:

your just out there to pick up those underage girls!!! j/k. i do love crusing Gratiot though. i was out on Hall road one night last week, and SMOKED a newer Grand Am Gt. no one around and we got up past 100. when he shut down i was a car length ahead of him. he couldn't catch up the whole time. it was great!! and i won with both front windows all the way down and my sun roof wide open. (i forgot to shut them all).

Gratiot = teh suck, Woodward = teh cool.

That is all. :huh:


I cant stand all the highschool retards out on Gratiot who think they can drive. Too many accidents out there and too many cops. I probably wont ever go back to "cruise". I do a circle from Hall Rd E to Gratiot S to 16 mile W to Mound N to Hall E and so on. Plus, Woodward has like 8+ miles of cruising with 4 lanes in some areas, Gratiot is cool if you're trying to pick up skanky 14 yr olds. :unsure: Greg.

How could you hate Telegraph? Its a cool place to drag race, since the speed limit on most of it is 50MPH. Whats the speed limit on Gratiot? There may be more people on Gratiot, but you can't get away with much.
