Woodward Dream Cruise

Today 1.5 million car lovers are camped out on a 16-mile stretch of Detroit's famous Woodward Avenue (the first paved road in the world). They are participating in the Woodward Dream Cruise, a one-day event where you can wander among 40,000 classic cars. The afternoon and evening are meant for "cruising" and thousands of people sit in chairs along Woodward to watch the amazing assortment of cars cruise past. You can see a Muscle car, Model-A, DeLorean and Hummer all drive by in a matter of minutes. An unorganized parade of automobile history. And you don't have to be in a classic car to cruise. Stick to the inside lanes and you can drive among the best. I "cruised" last night for about an hour and it was wonderful to see so many people enjoying a gorgeous night - families in camping chairs with a cooler and camera. They were sharing car stories and making memories.

This is Detroit and we love the cars we build.
