Yes, indeed it is cool to see Woodward come to life over the whole week. Grandstands being set-up, Booths and tents, etc. Like a HUGE party. Whicih of course it is.

Thank - you. Don't hold your breath on being photographed. Sorry. I grew up in Dearborn and my dad retired from Ford, however, if I take a photo of an old Ford it will be of an older Mustang. But if I know it is you I can find a way to get you here. ...

Thank - you..........I know it just was not in the cards thie year to meet up. Maybe next year at another event. Maybe Woodward. Take a vacation and come enjoy the sights and sounds. Arrive on Wed. and head home on Sunday.





New photos being loaded later tonight. Look for them.

Great job as usual Mike!!! Thanks for sharing. Looks like your photos will probably be the only view of the Dream Cruise we will have this year. We were hoping to make it out there today but I doesnt look like it's going to happen. Enjoy, Have fun and keep the pictures coming!

Wow, amazing pics of a ton of amazing cars. I'd love to see that in person but I have to wonder what it would be like to actually be in that traffic. Does it just inch along? What if you're a local and you're just trying to get from point A to point B?

If you're trying to get from Point A to Point B, you have to take a different route Most of the locals hate it - some go out of town for the week. Personally, I'd gladly trade houses with someone who lives along Woodward -- I hate being an hour away.

Not to steal Mike's thunder, but here's some more pictures that my wife took last night while out on Woodward:
http://mifbody.com/gallery/index.php...gust-15th.html


For those not familiar with the Woodward Dream Cruise - it's a one day event on the 3rd Saturday of August. Woodward Avenue in general, though, is a cruising mecca when the weather is nice. Manufacturers actually have driving tests which were born out on Woodward Ave. During the spring, summer, and fall you will see people cruising on Woodward every Friday and Saturday night. Leading up to the day of the Dream Cruise, though, people hit Woodward hard and pack the streets. Honestly last night driving 3 miles took about 20-30 minutes from the traffic creeping along.. It's great!

Does it inch along... in some cases you can walk faster. As you can see in these pictures... Batman is passing cars on his bike. lol


As for being a local business... you are better off closing down for the week because most places will lose money just staying open unless they serve food.

Does my '65 Fastback count as an older Mustang? Look for blue with white type 1965 Ontario plates on that one. Although truth be told I'm likely to be in the Boss. Love this thread, keep pictures coming everyone.

Thank - you, Glad you are enjoying them. Yes, there are a TON of great looking cars, sad thing is I cannot get photos of all of them.

Thank - you Brian for jumping in. NP on the thunder. I only started the thread and saved the front section for myself. IT was great seeing you and your family out there again. What a great tradition to do.

Absolutley it counts. My favorites are the 65 thru 73's. They were ruined during the Mustang II era. If I remember to take a photo and see it I will take it. Thank - you for the compliment. More being loaded soon.

Thank - you for getting a photo of me on Woodward. Very Cool.

It was a BLAST cruising with all those Camaro's.

It wasn't hard to miss the group. We were 4 wide and over 10 deep.

Great pictures! This helps soften my withdraw now that Hot August Nights is over. It is so much fun to see what people have done with their cars, and to see the cars that people have loved enough to maintain/restore.

Batman is just awesome, too.
