Woodward Dream Cruise

08.21.07 | technician | In event, woodward, auto, festival

Dreamy day to cruise Woodward

Sunny, and cool, Saturday was a perfect day for a leisurely drive or a family picnic.

So more than a million people and 30,000 or so cherished cars combined the two for the 13th Woodward Dream Cruise.

From Pontiac to Detroit, the 16-mile route was lined with lawn chairs, coolers and multi-generational families admiring classic cars from every decade over the last 100 years, barbecuing and relaxing.

Cruisers: DeLoreans not just for time travel

Sandor Piszar loves his DeLorean car - the same car that served as a time machine in the 1985 film “Back to the Future.”

A dozen cars in the car club and their owners will be out at today’s Woodward Dream Cruise, parked along Woodward between 12 Mile and 13 Mile roads.

The group is revved up about the news that the DeLorean Motor Co. - a Houston-based DeLorean restoration shop - is making plans to produce up to 20 vehicles a year.

The Stuff the Dream Cruise Is Made Of

The annual Dream Cruise up Woodward Avenue north of Detroit has morphed from a single-day charity event into a weeklong marketing extraganza, as Mary M. Chapman explained in The Times earlier this month.

More than a million people are attending this week, with 40,000 classic cars on display.
