Woodward Dream Cruise 'Detroit is back.'
That's the message many were celebrating as nearly a million people
converged along Woodward Avenue to celebrate the 16th Annual Woodward Dream
Almost 40,000 classic cars from around the globe and from states such as
California, Texas, Arizona, Ohio, and even Florida attended the world's
largest one-day automotive event.
This event is not just about cars because it also gives an economic Boost to the local Metro Detroit economy.
It's estimated that 56 million dollars is generated each year, which is
more revenue than any other event in Michigan including Super Bowl 40 held
at the Ford Field in 2006.
MI Auto Times was there to celebrate a glorious return to the site where
America's first cars were manufactured, and classic cars first cruised
Even though it rained the mood was light-hearted as people cruising in
their cars and on the side of the road cheered not only for great American
classics like Ford Mustangs, Chevy Corvettes and
everything in between, but also for modern-day American-made cars, like the
caravan of more than a dozen all-new Buick Regal GS vehicles that paraded
down the avenue.
Reactions when the crowds saw the Regals pass by ranged from wild hoots to
jaw-dropping admiration, proving to us American carmakers are just as
relevant today as they were back then.
Whether you are a Ford, Chrysler or GM fan, it was evident that people love
American craftsmanship and cars, and though the Dream Cruise attracts
people from all over the world, this underlying feeling is always the same.
Here are a few of our favorites from the cruise:

Did you know that the Woodward Dream Cruise actually started as a small
fundraiser to raise money for a soccer field in Ferndale, Michigan?
In August 1995, Nelson House and a group of volunteers looked to relive and
recreate the nostalgic heydays of the 50s and 60s, when youth, music and
Motor City steel roamed Woodward Avenue, America's first highway. That
year, 250,000 people participated—nearly ten times the number expected.
The rest, as they say, is history.
Today, the Woodward Dream Cruise is the world's largest one-day automotive
event, drawing 1.5 million people and 40,000 classic cars each year from
around the globe—from as far away as New Zealand, Australia, Japan and
the former Soviet Union. North American cruisers from California, Georgia,
Canada and all points in between caravan to Metro Detroit to participate in
what has become, for many, an annual rite of summer.
Background music is my original creation.
American Skyline Vol 5 / Part 1 - R34 GTR V-Spec Interior and MFD
Now we get in the car and start looking at the MFD. There are always a lot
of questions about it, so we spent a lot of time on -- far too much for one
video -- so you'll get to see the inside of the car today, as well as some
of the basic MFD displays. In the next day or two, we'll post an additional
video that is more detail and we'll putter around my neighborhood at low
American Skyline Volume 5 Part 2 - R34 GTR V-Spec MFD and a ride
The rest of the information about the MFD from the last video, the Nismo
specific functions, and also a quick ride around the neighborhood. It
ended up a little more bouncy then I would have liked but it gives you a
sense for the feel and sound of the car. The Nismo S-Tune suspension is
firm but this video makes it look extremely stiff -- it isn't really, it's
