Woodward Dream Cruise 2012
A few impressions from the Woodward Dream Cruise 2012.
The Motor City's Dream Cruise is the biggest classic car event in the world with 40,000 classic cars all over a total length of 16 !!! miles of Woodward Avenue.
The Woodward Avenue (M1) is home to the first mile of concrete roadway in the country. The highway follows "Detroit's Main Street" from Detroit northwesterly to Pontiac.
The world's largest automotive event - 2012 Woodward Dream Cruise
2012 Woodward Dream Cruise - The world's largest one-day automotive event.
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.

2012 Woodward Dream Cruise Compilation
The August 18th, 2012 Woodward Dream Cruise was really cool. Words can not describe how I was feeling that day. This is my fifth time going to it. The only downside was Pontiac, MI. For some odd reason, the last two years, very little cars have been crusing that area, as well as parked. Pontiac needs to improve something. Other than that, it was awsome.

Woodward Dream Cruise 2012 Day 3, Muscle Car's Revving and Launch's, Flames Too!
Thursday night at the Dream Cruise. I got there late but still caught a few gems.
First a quick rev off into launches between a Plymouth Barracuda, that was so loud it made the hair on neck stand up at first, a VW Beetle with a full tubbed suspension, wheelie bars and a supercharged engine upfront. Joining the Beetle was also a tubbed out Impala fully blown too! Next we have a Hotrod shooting flames for the crowd.
Sorry didn't have more but had limited time and audio issues experimenting with my new external microphone. Let me know if it sounds better to you than the first day in the comments.
