The Autoblog faithful knows that every year we attend the Woodward Dream Cruise, and every year we set up a live stream on the web that shows you a view of the street. We like to do it for the people who've never been to the Dream Cruise and seen the majesty of this great American motor event. But the only view of the street we could get in the past was from an office building off the main drag. The shot was narrow, far away and static – not good enough. So this year we're doing something different. This year we'll be streaming live from within the action on Woodward Ave.

Thanks to advances in modern technology, as well as help from our friends at ReplayXD and LiveU, we're going to live stream a view from inside the thousands-strong traffic jam of muscle cars, classics and exotics participating in the Woodward Dream Cruise. We'll be sticking a ReplayXD 1080 camera on the top of a car, pointing it behind us, and sending a high quality stream to our Ustream channel through a LiveU portable uplink pack. You'll be able to see Woodward like you were sitting in the back seat.

Also, AOL Autos has kicked off Detroit Week, a hub of content celebrating the Dream Cruise and Detroit sheet-metal, including a video that riffs on the infamous Emiinem Super Bowl ad for Chrysler. You can see all that content here.

What: Autoblog Woodward Dream Cruise LIVE Stream from in traffic

When: Saturday, August 20 from 11AM-5PM EST

Where: Check Autoblog.com @11AM for the embedded stream or visit our Autoblog Ustream channel

      What car will the camera be mounted on? That way, those of us there can know what to look out for.
