[PICS] The Corvettes of the 2013 Woodword Dream Cruise



Quote:
The Woodward cruise is billed as the largest one-day car event in the world. Each year on the third Saturday in August about 1.5 million people and 40,000 or so collector cars descend on historic Woodward Avenue in metro Detroit. It’s the pinnacle of the annual automotive week of ecstasy we told you about a couple weeks ago.




The cruise began in 1995 as a fundraising event for a Ferndale, MI baseball field and has morphed into the world’s largest 1 day automotive event complete with corporate sponsors and strong representation from the Big Three automakers. The event takes place along a 16 mile stretch of America’s first highway to recreate years gone by when Woodward Avenue was Detroit’s unofficial automotive proving grounds and stop light drag races were the norm.



The cruise is officially a one day event, but eager cruisers hit the street days, even weeks, before that. If you’re looking to get out and actually drive, your best bet is to be on Woodward early, because by noon on the official cruise day as it’s usually a slow moving traffic jam any time after that. This year’s event was blessed with perfect weather all week long. We cruised last Wednesday for the Corvettes on Woodward Food Drive, last Friday night, and even got out early Saturday morning while the traffic was still light. We made the full loop from our Motor City HQ in Royal Oak, up to Pontiac, back down to the southern end in Ferndale, and finally back northward to Royal Oak again. The roundtrip adventure took about 2 hours total. After that, we set off on foot to explore the various displays alongside Woodward.



If you’ve never been to the Woodward Dream Cruise, you really need to place it on your must-attend list. You’ve never seen a car show as unique this. The best part is that it’s not a stationary car show. Of course all of the parking lots along Woodward are stuffed full of cars, but there’s also a rolling 16 mile long car show still going on right behind you. It doesn’t get much better than that!

Thanks for posting. I always enjoyed the Woodward Dream Cruise when I lived in Michigan. Here is a bit of the video I shot of the Parade Lap Corvettes from Laguna Seca this past weekend:
