When we think Woodward Dream Cruise, thoughts of muscle cars and golden oldies pass between our ears. But while we're all about the painstakingly restored classics, there is always a little room in our hearts for anything emanating from the land of misfit rides.

Whether you're talking about Elvis himself, a murdered out Dodge Grand Caravan, a perfectly restored Merkur XR4Ti (who does that?) or a run of-the-mill Pontiac Grand Prix emblazoned with airbrush artwork from the band Kiss, Dream Cruise 2011 featured more than its fair share of automotive oddities. We even saw a Gremlin, and it was still running! And the Ford Thunderbird with the ill-conceived aero kit? You may want to skip that one.

We can go on all day, but you're better off if you simply click on our image gallery of the strange sights from the 2011 Woodward Dream Cruise.

      I'm pretty sure that KISS car is a GrandAm instead of a Grand Prix.

        I totally agree, especially since you can see the "Grand Am GT" badge on the trunk in one photo. Come on, AB!!!

        Seeing that most of those cars would have rusted out after only a couple Michigan winters, yes they are strange sights.

        That is a Merkur XR4Ti (pre 1988 because it has the double wing) . The Scorpio was a sedan. I still miss mine.

      is a Buick Roadmaster done up like a surf woody a strange sight? i have trophies for that car! i was actually pretty suprised to find TiKi on here. i remember 1 guy photo graphing the hell out of me but i thought nothing of it as there were a bunch of people taking a pictures of my car on woodward! the odd part is my brother was right behind me and no one photographed his stunning and mean looking caprice.
