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.
Background music is my original creation.
Spare parts from the 2012 Woodward Dream Cruise
After spending 14 hours on Woodward Avenue today, I'm almost on empty. A
quick grab of my iPhone revealed, however, a lot of material that really
didn't fit into our earlier coverage. So I thought: Why not put it all
together? Turns out, this sums up my pure Dream Cruise experience. And with
that ... I'm on fumes. See you all next year. May you avoid all potholes
