    Well, it's here. What started out in Ferndale MI as an attempt to boost commerce by bringing more shoppers "downtown" did more than just that. It is expected that over 2 MILLION people will be out on Saturday along Woodward Avenue from 16 Mile Rd. south to 8 Mile Rd. in Ferndale where it all started. 48220 for all you mapquest types.

    I will post pics (membership memory allowing). I'll probably have to delete some pics of my P-Bass in some old thread...sorry.

    I see people runnin' red lights and breakin' all sorts of laws the rest of the year...but the cops smell blood during the 'Cruise, and the local communities love the extra revenue, so there they are.

    Mmmm...Classic Charger. I'm looking for a Plymouth Superbird, arguably the most obnoxious and awesome mucle car.

    And of course, many many Chevelles. NOT that band!

    Damn, I thought the light blue one in the first post was an Avanti, until I clicked to enlarge it.

    I might get down there to check it out tommorow. We are going to be exploring some old buildings in the city, then might head to see some old cars.

    A friend of mine just moved to that area, just off Woodward. She and her husband are going to check it out...

    Sweet pics, P. Aaron. That '66 (or '67?) Stingray vert is incredible. Thanks for sharing!

    It's a 2-gig weekend for me Fri. & Sat., but I'll be out gettin' some pics & hopefully post this afternoon.

    The weather: Perfect...low 70's with clear skies which is the best for those 4-barrel carbs & cranky V-8's.

    I believe that is a Buick Riviera. There is a snippet of a Raymond Lowe-Studebaker Avanti in the background of one of the posted pics.

    Woodward Ave. is 4 lanes running both north & south. It's choked with cars right now on a Saturday afternoon for almost 10 miles in each direction. The pics just don't convey how big this event is.
