This photo is one of several that Spike has of the Woodward Dream Cruise, and one of hundreds in the Woodward Dream Cruise group on Flickr (slideshow). For even more, settle back for Flickr’s Woodward Dream Cruise slideshow.
The 14th annual Woodward Dream Cruise takes place this Saturday (August 16, 2008) in Detroit, Michigan. From humble beginnings in 1995 as a fundraiser for a soccer field in Ferndale, it has grown to be the world’s largest one-day automotive event, drawing 1.5 million people and 40,000 classic cars each year from all over the world. The Cruise benefits more than 100 charities and pumps an estimated $56 million into the metro Detroit economy.
This year, the cruise will feature a “GM Century Cruise” where more than 100 GM vehicles from the last 100 years will parade up Woodward Avenue at 7:30 am. For more information and pictures of some cool old cars, here’s a video from GM. There’s also a cool video overview of the Dream Cruise right here.
