Woodward Dream Cruise

Hi, On the Saturday of our trip Dale and I attended the Woodward Dream Cruise in the suburbs of Detroit.  This event is held Friday, Saturday and Sunday during the third weekend of August.  It attracts vehicles across the spectrum from before World War II to the present with the emphasis on the 50s and 60s.

The event covers Woodward Avenue from Eight Mile Road (the Detroit City Line) to Pontiac, MI. Most owner attendees park their vehicles somewhere along this route and they can be viewed by passers by. However, some elect to drive them up and down Woodward Avenues (cruise) at least part of the time.

I will comment on some of the photos while others will be included without caption information.

Above is the interior of a 1941 Lincoln Continental.

And here is the exterior.

One of the parking lots along the route had a collection of Lincolns including and this 1962 Continental with "suicide" rear doors.

Scorpio is being imported by Mahindra, an Indian company.

This 1959 Chevrolet came dressed as a Maumee, Ohio police car.

The man in the wedding photo is the only owner of the while 1960 Chevorlet shown below.  In the photo above the couple is in the rear seat of the car.
