car hood detail

What separates an old car from a classic? In many cases, not a lot. Beautiful sheet metal, a legendary powertrain or world-class performance could make a world of difference, and so can attention to detail.

We're suckers for a well-stamped curve, an intricate chrome grille or even an elegant hood ornament. And then there are the engines. You won't find many plastic covers in these beautiful bays, but you will find plenty of interesting details and, in some cases, a boat-load of chrome.

We strolled the streets of Woodward with cameras in hand to capture some of the best and brightest details from the 2011 Dream Cruise. Click on the image gallery above to browse everything from the grille of a Rolls-Royce to the engine bay of a Mustang signed by Jack Roush.
