First thing we did after arriving at the 2010 Woodward Dream Cruise was head out to the various automaker displays on Woodward Avenue. And, as you can see, that includes Chrysler.

Ford always comes strong at the Woodward Dream Cruise, and this year the corner of 9 Mile and Woodward is a packed as ever with a slew of Mustangs in tow.

After first appearing in Monterey, Ford quickly hot-footed the 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 back home to Detroit for a showing at this year's Woodward Dream Cruise.


Smoke on the Woodward

What does a PT Cruiser need to do to attract our attention at the Woodward Dream Cruise? It could overheat and die, needing to be pushed to the side of the road. Kinda like this one here.

      We are all well aware of the crap we have been subjected to.

        I agree, this is overrated and definitely doesn't deserve 10 separate blog entries. 1 or 2 would be fine. But come on... That one about a PT Cruiser overheating?

      Such a huge collection of beauties.

      I'm sorry but for an event like this, I would think it would make sense to shut down a descent stretch of Woodward Avenue to at least let the people with all this classic (and newer) metal cruise with no daily traffic. It seems like there is just too much "civilian" traffic in most of these photos. I would think there would be some accidents from all the gawkers.

      I have never been to the Woodward Dream Cruise, but I would think by all the hoopla I have heard, it would be a little better to cruise on.

        The best days to 'cruise' Woodward are the week evenings leading up to Saturday, especially Wednesday and Thursday. In fact, this year, the weather was actually better those days.

        On the day of the cruise, however, it's best to park and walk around. Bring a lawn chair, bring a grille, bring a cooler, and just chill out for the day.

        It would seem to make sense, but the only problem is that Woodward Ave. is too much of a major thoroughfare for the Metro Detroit area, and with the odd angle it goes compared to the rest of the area roads, it would make getting around Woodward a major nightmare.

      Yes, it would be nice if it were somehow possible to get all the normal traffic and gawkers off Woodward Ave the day of the Cruise. I doubt that will ever happen though.

      It would be even better if they stopped shutting down Woodward absurdly early in the evening at 8pm (the police literally force all traffic off of it for miles creating huge backups). Years ago this was never done and the Cruise ran well into the night, sometimes until 2am or later.

      Pontiac used to have very little police presence for the Cruise (and it's the place to be if you want to see the most hooning and shenanigans) until this year. They had cops on every bend and corner and shut down just like the other suburbs at 8pm.

      Terrible Photoshop job. WTH.

      Back to the Bricks doesn't have the Cruise history (or sheer length) of Woodward. It's just another car show like any you'd find in the nation, Woodward is not.
