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

Thursday night at the Dream Cruise. I got there late but still caught a few
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.

1967 Ford Fairlane GT, S Code 390 4 Speed, matching #'s, Woodward Dream Cruise 'best of show 2011
1967 Ford Fairlane GT 390 4 speed console/buckets car from the factory,
original # matching motor and trans. 5 year resto, after a few years
collecting NOS parts. ***2011 "Woodward Dream Cruise" 'best of show'
winner. Now, that's saying something..."Woodward Dream Cruise" encompasses
5 large cities, has thousands and thousands of cars, and millions of people
in attendance. It is the by far the largest car event in the world. You
really have to have something special to catch the judges eyes here !
I love Pro Street, and decided to go a Pro Street resto. ***Mike Pastomy
builds race cars for the big 3 auto companies did the Pro Street conversion
professionally. 20K later, it was time to paint. Done professionally in
Snake Skin Green, came out perfect. Kept original console and four speed
shifter, original motor (have complete build sheet for you), orig trans
rebuilt. Every nut and bolt on the car was cadmium plated, powder coated,
anodized, or chromed. The hinges and latches for trunk, doors and hood
were cadmium plated. Off the top of my head I can think of 60-70K dollars
spent, it was more than that. The car starts right up and runs cool, it
was running for the video and the pictures and while I talked to my
neighbor for a while. My dad had a car like this when I was young,... I
spent this much money and time, and had only the best people work on the
car because I was planning on keeping it for the rest of my life...but life
recently threw me a wild curve ball...

As you can see by the video, and the pics, this car is over the top, and
after winning 'Woodward Dream Cruise' 'best of show'...it now has a
pedigree ! It IS an original GT S Code 4 Speed bucket/console car as well.
This car would finish off a stock Ford collection nicely, or a 'race'
section at a museum perhaps... Definitely NO disappointments, and you can
drive it to shows, not to radical for that, if you don't mind a lot of
attention that is...
