Thumbs up 2012 Woodward Dream Cruise

18th annual Woodward Dream Cruise. Saturday, August 18. Metro Detroit area. I figured it would be smart to start talking about this sooner than later since this cruise is huge, and having time to plan in advance will more than likely help. I'm planning on going again this year. I took my 06 last year and, prior to that, took my 03 several times.

The cruise is an all day event and always a great time. Each year it seems to be larger and there are events during the week leading up to the cruise, as well as multiple car shows along the route the day of the cruise. Participating cities from Ferndale to Pontiac hold their own events along the 18 mile route. There is plenty of space to pull off the route and show where you want but it does fill up pretty quick.

I figured we could get a group of us Forum members together, decide on a meeting time and location for that morning, then do whatever we want for the rest of the day. People come from all over the country, not to mention the World, for this one so maybe we could get a few members from out of state. It's definitely worth it.

If you haven't seen something, you will probably see it here. Every make, model, and year of vehicle you can imagine.

Yeah, I'm not exactly sure who to contact about that either. I did just send an e-mail to the cruise's executive director addressing that question. I'll let you know what I hear back. I know parking usually opens up between Birmingham and Pontiac. South of Birmingham, and Pontiac itself, fills up fast.

I am down there every year I live in the area so I hang out down there if not every weekend every other weekend. Cars have been out of storage for a couple months now so we've been out on Woodward.

Sounds good guys!

Tadd, I haven't heard anything back about parking yet, although I can't say I'm surprised.

Ashley said she's down for Woodward also, so there's about seven of us that I know of as of right now.

Hoping to get my new struts and lowering springs installed on the car before Woodward. I'm a little worried because I haven't ordered springs yet and I sort of have a small window of time in my schedule for the next six weeks leading up to Woodward, twelve of those days being a business trip for work. Just have to keep my fingers crossed.

Bit of an update. I got an email reply on the 9th about who to contact for reserving parking. Response was "Please call to discuss your reservation needs during the Woodward Dream Cruise." I got the contact info for the Event Director of the Ferndale Woodward Dream Cruise so I'm not sure if that means he just coordinates in Ferndale's portion or what. Guess I have to call.
