    I wonder what the next strategy will be from the city of OC? Maybe just arrest people on the spot for having illegal mods done to their cars during a sanctioned cruise event along with impounding their cars? Public execution? Asking for a friend

    H2Oi is literally ruining both Cruisin events, and for those of us who have been going for years, it is painful to see and even be a part of anymore. I spent $2k during this past cruise week between my rental house, food, etc and am really unsure if I want to go back at least with one of my cars. I'm not sure it's worth the risk.

    We had a good friend of ours get his 23 T Bucket impounded. No hood, exposed tires. That car has been to Cruisin O.C. for some 25 years... never a problem. Hell, I think that it may have even been on one of the old event shirts. In the Boardwalk Parade on Thursday, impounded on Friday. He was just sitting at a light... no shenanigans.

    I remember seeing him posting up about it on FB. That was pretty much the start of the downward spiral in terms of towing cars for stupid reasons. I get it, the car is now deemed "unsafe" and needs to get off the road. Is an impound really warranted? He didn't have the option to just get it off the road for the rest of the weekend? There are people who will never venture back to the event just because of that car being impounded.

    This was definitely the most uneventful cruise week I've ever been to. Despite how civil it was, the cops still came down hard on everyone, even exhibition/show cars. Like goddam, I almost got nailed for blipping the throttle at the guy in the dinosaur suit! I think this is the end of an era, I doubt it'll ever be like it was before.

    Havenít been down for a couple years. Definitely wasnít like previous years. I was worried about getting pulled over for running MT ET Proís. Not DOT approved. Loaded the car back up in the trailer, didnít want to be paying impound fees. Glad I spent lots of time and money to get it on the road for this event. Then my diesel truck whistleís very loudly due to aftermarket turbo. Was afraid to even drive it. Ended up walking to nearby restaurants. We stayed near the inlet so short walk to inlet show and boardwalk parades.

    You can definitely blame the H2O crowd. They actually had bars and restaurants close early and stopped bus transit at 6pm for them. I think they were expecting the same thing from the Fall Car Cruise event folks. Definitely not the same crowd. Well majority of the folks. I understand what they are trying to accomplish but definitely went about it the wrong way. Just my opinion.

    Looking at going somewhere else next year. OBX has a show, Woodward car cruise etc. Itís just time to do something else.
