Now that we're deep into Winter, the season of depair for enthusiasts, here are our pictures from the 2018 Woodward Dream Cruise in Detroit (and environs). So cheer up!
If you don't see a car you like, keep coming back, we'll be updating this all weekend and next week!
The day before the cruise, "Back to the Bricks" is a downtown-sized event in Flint, Michigan. This 1929 Buick Roadster was parked in front of a diner.
The Monkeemobile is racing the Batmobile, hence rendering your argument... invalid.
People start getting their rides ready early on Saturday. Here's a 1965 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu SS Coupe.
A Vega! That is a 1975 Chevrolet Cosworth Vega with an aluminum head with double-overhead camshafts.
How about some more interesting stuff: A 1969 Mercury Cougar Convertible!
Who likes an Impala? Lots of people! Here's a '68.
Now for something mean, a 1966 Shelby GT350.
Okay, back to the good stuff! A rat rod! What's that behind it in the next lane? Just a 1975 DeTomasa Pantera.
A 2005 Chrysler Crossfire roadster.
GTO's are common at Woodward. They fly them in on transport planes, ship them in by train, and there's a rumor that the migrant caravan has a dissasembled 1965 GTO convertible hidden among their possesions and they're going to put it back together for the 2019 Dream Cruise. Anyway, this 1970 Pontiac GTO Coupe is somewhat unusual in that it isn't a "The Judge" version and hasn't been transformed into a fake Judge.
A 1965 Pontiac, and its not a GTO! Parisienne Hardtop Coupe.
Boys will be boys. An early morning burnout proves that! 2014 Ford Mustang GT.
Cheese-it, the cops! In a 1962 Ford Galaxie.
You don't have to be driving an antique at the cruise, but it helps if it looks like one, like this 2005 Chevrolet SSR with a Corvette engine and a metal folding retractable roof.
Can't have a cruise without old cars... or Oldsmobile cars. 1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme was just about the pinnacle of Oldsmobile market supremacy.
Can't have a Dream Cruise without a Trans Am. This 1976 was not the Bandit car; it would be more closely related to the Rocford Files, though James Garner drove a Formula disguised as an Esprit, not the Trans Am. Fun fact, the car behind the Trans Am is also a Pontiac, a late-model G6.
We like our imports, too. A 1951 MG TD.
Here's another popular import: 1978 Datsun 280Z. For those too young to remember dial phones, Datsun was the previous name of Nissan.
