Chevrolet Lists Activities at Woodward Dream Cruise
 
– Each August, more than a million car fans flock to Detroit’s legendary Woodward Avenue for the motorized equivalent of Woodstock. Enthusiasts from around the world gather to celebrate the time when tail fins symbolized American success, and the rumble of a V-8 engine was the soundtrack for summer romance.

This year, the Woodward Dream Cruise will be part of Chevrolet’s Centennial celebration, with events and activities for the press and public over a four-day period. Following are highlights of Chevy-related events at this year’s Dream Cruise.

Wednesday, August 17

GM Design Car Show

The GM Design team will host a car show on Wednesday from 1 to 9 p.m. at the Northwood Plaza on the SW corner of Woodward and 13 Mile Road. The show will feature personal vehicles owned by members of the Design team, along with live musical performances.

Thursday, August 18

Chevrolet Centennial Woodward Parade

Chevrolet will kick off the Dream Cruise with a parade on Woodward Avenue starting at 2 p.m. on Thursday. The parade will feature 50 Chevrolet Volts and their owners in town for Volt’s first Cruise, 20 employee-owned Chevrolet heritage vehicles, the new Camaro ZL1 and Chevrolet Sonic, and vehicles from the GM Heritage Collection. The parade will start on Woodward Avenue at Long Lake Road, travels south to I-696, and returns.

Performance Division and Performance Parts at Memorial Park
The Performance Division and Performance Parts display will be open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. at Memorial Park on the NE corner of Woodward and 13 Mile Road. The display will include a collection of classic engines and modern crate engines. Attendees will be able to watch professional engine builders from the GM Performance Build Center in Wixom, Mich., disassemble and reassemble a Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 engine, and see how the masters do it. The E-ROD emission-compliant 1955 Chevy Bel Air hot rod will be featured, along with other concept, classic, and current hot rods. Technical experts will be on site to answer Cruisers’ questions.

Friday August 19

WWJ Newsradio 950 Motown Muscle Breakfast

Camaro Chief Engineer Al Oppenheiser will participate in the Motown Muscle breakfast and panel discussion from 8:15 to 9:30 a.m. at Duggan’s Irish Pub in Royal Oak. The new Camaro ZL1 will be on display. Jeff Gilbert and John McElroy will host the panel, which will also include representatives from Ford and Chrysler. The public can register online.

I started with a full tank on Monday, topped it off on Wed. morning and again this morning. I have put on over 250 miles in just cruising from home to Woodward, doing laps and then back home again. More miles tonight and then some more miles tomorrow.

It would be a whole lot easier to cruise if I had an automatic, but at my age, my left foot gets damn tired real quick in a moving parking lot.

Had a blast last night, and I'm looking forward to Saturday's parade. I might cruise a bit after the parade, but it'll depend on just how much of a parking lot it becomes.

I will say that cruising yesterday was a whole lot more civilized than the Dowriver cruise was a month or two ago.

Even with the large collection of Chevy's in one massive group with all the horsepower (esp the Vetts), I never heard anyone light the tires up.

We accelerated a bit briskly from time to time, but still everyone was on their best behaviour. Of course the frequent appearance of various LEO's may have had an influence.

the Downriver cruise on the other hand was total chaos with people lighting their tire up left and right. Between the people in front spitting rubber chunks onto your hood, and the ones in back of you threatening to climb up your bumper as they do thier burnouts......

Very well behaved.

BeckyD@RodgersChevrolet 08-19-2011 11:52 PM

I was out cruising tonight....:happyanim:

Very fun crowd...:wub:

Nobody got crazy....:thumbsup:

Just a lot of car fans!
