It Was a Great Event and MI Auto Times Enjoyed Every Minute of the Woodward Dream Cruise Along Woodward Avenue
DETROIT, MI–(Marketwire – September 2, 2010) – Woodward Dream Cruise memories are what MI Auto Times is having on a daily basis since its attendance at the 16th Annual Woodward Dream Cruise.
If last year’s Woodward Dream Cruise was a subdued nod to the auto industry surviving some of the darkest days in its history, this year’s event could be described as a triumphant bash celebrating the country’s and Detroit’s promising return to American auto manufacturing greatness.
Estimations from last year’s Dream Cruise put the attendance number at one million, but this year’s number is likely to be lower because of the rain.
Many mint-condition classic cars were present such as a 1956 Ford F1, 1931 Chrysler Roadster, Chevy Camaros from almost every single model year, the bat mobile, Pontiac GTOs, and the classic ’57 Chevy in every color combination.
Ford took over the corner of 9 Mile and Woodward with a display of Mustangs including the brand new 2012 Mustang Boss 302.
The GM Performance division was at the northwest corner of Memorial Park in Royal Oak; Chevrolet held down the 555 Triangle in Birmingham, and the Metro Detroit Buick GMC dealers held their showing at the Athens Coney Island.
MI Auto Times was impressed by a 1953 Buick parked alongside a brand new Buick Regal, a Buick GNX, a Skylark GS, an imposing brand new GMC Sierra HD, and a custom GMC 1500 among the many displayed.
The Chrysler display was at the Northwood Shopping Plaza at 13 Mile and Woodward, featuring a monster truck with Ram body crushing a four-door foreign make and the Jeep Nukizer concept.
The highlight for MI Auto Times was a caravan of more than a dozen 2011 Buick Regal GS vehicles. The overwhelming response from bystanders made it clear that it will attract new buyers Buick hasn’t seen before.
One quickly realizes there’s a lot of history in between the past and present, yet some things never change: America loves great cars, fine craftsmanship, and constantly reinventing itself.
