Don't forget the rhythmic "ba-bump, ba- bump" of traffic passing over warped manhole covers. NYC Girlfriend had a crib on the fringes of Park Slope in the '80s. I say "fringes" 'cuz that was on the edge of a rough neighborhood back then. The Old School East Coast lowrider was usually a slammed bright red Nissan Spentra w/ Pirelli P7s on white Paddy Hopkirk wheels. P7s were the original wide ultra high performance radial, see? Rap music wasn't quite a thing yet at the time and anyway, you be the Leader of the Opposition with your lowered Spentra and several hundred watts of mariachi music blaring at 3:00 a.m. ... Ever notice Van Halen's "Running With the Devil" solo sounds like a mariachi trumpet solo?!
