2011 Woodward Dream Cruise With a Funny Moment @ 3:35 Part 1
Last Saturday(Augest 20th)was the Annual Woodward Dream Cruise, people come
from all over brought their classic, exotic and rare cars to cruise down
this famous street that starts in downtown Detroit MI and loops around in
Pontiac MI. The first scene is at a gas station in Birmingham MI @ the
corner of Woodward and 13 mile Rd where they had 2 Bat Mobile cars
(original ones from the new and old movies) on display and the rest were
infront of a great restaraunt (forget the name) about 1000 feet north of 13
mile on the Southbound side. The Cruise had to be cut short when a severe
storm hit that caused a F3 tornado in Goderich Ont. We were caught by a
major down burst while we were on the freeway, almost flipped our car over,
no joke. Where we were standing/sitting there was another major downburst
that hit about 5 min after we left. One person died in the Goderich

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.

2009 Pontiac G8 GT with Bridgestone Blizzak LM60 245/40x19. Winter tires
make a mother worth of difference. I can get through about anything until
ground clearance becomes an issue. big snow tonight of 7 1/2 to 8" and
then as you can hear, raining ice of top of that. It's much better yet in
real cold snow.
