p2pnet news view Music:- Ghost Riding is when you (wait for it) slip your car, SUV, or whatever, into gear, get out and boogie on the roof, or wherever, while it drives itself.
Or as the Wikipedia sums it up »»»
Ghost-riding, frequently used in the context of “ghost-riding the whip” (a “whip” being a vehicle) or simply ghostin’, is when a person puts a car with an automatic transmission in drive or allows it to idle and then the driver (and passengers) of a vehicle exit while it is still rolling and dance beside it or on the hood or roof.
Ghost riding is an activity that has been practiced in the Bay Area for many years during what are called sydeshows. The popularization of ghost riding the whip is a byproduct of the popularity of Bay Area music and hyphy culture in general.
Anyhow, it’s not something you’d want to try if you’re sane — sorry, if you suffer from dizzy spells or anything like that.
A girl was performing a ‘horseplay maneuver’ as her 1980s-model Chevrolet Blazer idled along, says the Mercury News, going on:
“With music blaring from the vehicle, the girl apparently was standing on a footstep on the driver’s side while the SUV crept forward.”
She slipped, the Blazer ran over her upper legs, and she ended up in a traumu unit with serious, but not life-threatening, injuries, says the story.
Brentwood police sergeant Mark Misquez is quoted as saying the girl, “appeared to be performing the stunt alone and was not as a part of an impromptu sideshow, a sort of street corner exhibition where the ghost riding the maneuver is done along with other car stunts such as ‘doughnuts’ — quickly driving in a circle.”
