A view of the 13th Annual Dream Cruise (2007) from atop a building located on Woodward Ave. near Maple Road (aka: 15 Mile Road) in Birmingham, MI.

The Woodward Dream Cruise is a classic car event held annually on the third Saturday of August. The WDC Event spans much of Woodward Avenue from Pontiac through Ferndale in Oakland County, Michigan, all the way to the State Fair Grounds inside the Detroit city limits, just south of 8 Mile Road.

Today, the Woodward Dream Cruise is the world’s largest one-day automotive event, drawing 1.5 million people and 40,000 classic cars each year from around the globe. You can see muscle cars, street rods, custom, collector and special interest vehicles dating across several decades. The majority of the cars on display are those that were available and prevalent during the 1950s, 60s and early 70s prior to the OPEC oil embargo, which led to the Corporate Average Fuel Economy regulations of 1975 and the proliferation of more fuel-efficient and less powerful automobiles. However, the Woodward Dream Cruise also welcomes vehicles of all models whose owners have either scrupulously maintained or customized their car to create a unique vehicle or statement.

Each year, the celebration starts early in the week with these classic vehicles brought out onto the streets in preparation, and ancillary events are scheduled in the sponsoring communities of Ferndale, Pleasant Ridge, Royal Oak, Huntington Woods, Berkley, Birmingham, Bloomfield Township, Bloomfield Hills, and Pontiac

Mopar ‘10 Challenger to Join Other Mopars for Annual Woodward Dream Cruise

Chrysler’s Mopar group has announced a full scale assault on the Woodward Dream Cruise, with a prominent display set up on the corner of 13 Mile Road and Woodward.

Features will include the Limited Edition Mopar ’10 Dodge Challenger; a Mopar modified Challenger R/T; a special Mopar edition Chrysler (the first ever); the Raminator Monster truck; plus a fistful of Mopar accessorized Jeeps, including a Wrangler that made its debut at the Moab Jeep Safari earlier this year.

Given that some have labeled this decade a return to the 1970s, it’s good to see that Detroit hasn’t forgotten the enthusiast market and the Mopar display should prove a hit at the World’s largest car party this year. Estimates already have 1.1 million people attending the Dream Cruise.
