To perform a dangerous or extreme maneuver while driving a car, usually involving a moving U-turn, particularly while in heavy traffic.

Derived from the cool 70’s television private detective show: Rockford Files, staring James Gardner. He drove a Firebird.
I missed my turn so I had to do 'a Rockford' in the middle of the street.

The traffic is stopped in this lane. Hang 'a Rockford' and go another way.

Craptastic city in northern Illinois. Only slightly less godawful than Freeport (only because of its size). Rockford is home to a million boarded up victorian mansions doomed to rot. It's home to a buttload of broke-ass niggas angrily wanderin' the streets. It's home to a gaggle of cantankerous crackas wearing sleaveless shirts that say "Git R Done." It's home to not one but two cruddy wal marts, each featuring an assortment of side-show freak customers that must be seen to be believed. You always get a bizarre show when you visit Rockford, but it's not necessarily a show you want to see.
Rockford. It's like Freeport but bigger, and with a bigger cracka population. Sucks mightily.

MAN 1: Git R Done!

MAN 2: Nigga what?

Blue-collar town ninety minutes NW of Chicago that lost its global relevance ten years ago. Home to a mediocre liberal arts college and one aerospace engineering firm which will be in Connecticutt in five years. Everything closes at ten, and the "happening" section of town involves a truck stop and the Perkins restaurant. What a scream.
Rockford is a really fucking great place to live, alright.
