Default Woodward Dream Cruise pictures

It really sucked this year. It was 70% new cars, 20% retro cars (new challenger, mustang, charger), 5% old beat up cars and 5% cars worth seeing.

I took around 300 pictures. These are just the few I have had time to upload. The shots aren't the best because it was hard to get a clear shot. There was over 1 million people there and it was hard to find a spot to stand.

This thing was awesome. It was a 4 seater and the people were peddling it.

This thing was on airbags. He pulled up to our crowd and dropped it down and dragged the bumper for a while.

Note the religious van behind it. This event brings out the crazies. Thankfully the abortion people weren't out. There are plenty of kids that go, they don't need to see things like that.

This really wasn't as huge as people made it out to be. I still don't like it much.

These are just the ones I have uploaded so far. I have better pictures of some show quality cars parked in the park. The coolest was an LS9 powered Corvair.

That Charger is laughable. What do they call those doors - homicide doors?

A few neat machines in there to prevent a total fail, though only by a hair or two.

Nope, I specifically meant homicide. You could kill someone with those!

Suicide doors don't look like they're about to slice the passengers in half.



(OK, OK, but they do look less dangerous...)

I heard it is extremely rare to have one of these with a working top. I watched him put it up and down, pretty cool stuff for its time.

The first state Charger I have seen. Looks pretty cool to me. They didn't put the giant red bubble on it like the old ones. It's gonna be hard to spot em now.
