Default Woodward Dream Cruise *update*

Who else is going? I am going on Saturday. My brother said he drove down it last night and there were already a ton of classic cars out.

And supposedly Royal Oak police are out there giving tickets for EVERYTHING. Including 1-5 mph over

I'll make sure I get pics though

Not me. I hate it. Too crowded, too much traffic, and too many everyday cars. It would be nice if they'd close Woodward, but that'll never happen. Until then, all the idiots in everyday cars will clog up the road...and try to do burnouts.

IMO, I'm really glad the RO police are cracking down. It gets out of hand.

Gee Mark, if I didn't know you a bit, I'd think you were a regular killjoy...

Of course, I pretty much agree with you except... IMO there should be a stage area where burnouts could be done legally. When I lived in Metro Detroit, I pretty much avoided that whole area during the cruise. Besides there were all kinds of club meets and other places up there to see great cars during the summer, in better, less crowded environments.

I WISH! this will be the first time I'll miss it for 7 years. I can't get the days off, so I'll have to suffer . Someone needs to take many pics, oh, and there'* a really nice car show I go to up in Pontiac on the corner of Orchard Lake and Woodward. There'* usually 100+ cars

I went today and had a great time. Lots of nice cars. Pics will come tomorrow when I feel like posting them


Heres a fun story, it will make you LOL.

I heard a cars bouncing the rev limiter, I was like wtf? and see a cavalier. It said 'barely legal' on the side and had a heavy girl driving. She was bouncing it off the limiter in neutral then I hear BAM and she slams it into gear. Later I see her do it again. So I walk up to her car since she was in the lane closest to where i was standing. I encourage her some more and she does it AGAIN. I think she thought her Cavalier was so cool in the dream cruise. I wonder how much longer she made it doing neutral drops before it blew


It was also fun trying to get all the ricer to light 'em up and they would rev their shitty exhaust then peel a .001 sec squeal
