There's no doubt that classic cars make up the bulk of what keeps us coming to Detroit to cover the Woodward Dream Cruise year after year. But what makes a car a classic?
That question is as debatable as ever, but for the purposes of our coverage this weekend, we're calling a classic anything built before 1964 or so. That's around the first year you could buy a Pontiac GTO – what many consider to be the first true muscle car – and the end of what we're calling our classic car era.
Yes, it's a bit arbitrary to divide all these vintage vehicles into two groups, but there's just too many for one gallery! So here's the first, our gallery of pre-1964 (or so) classics. Post-1964 (or so) muscle cars will follow, so get through the gallery below and we'll bring the muscle a little later.
