Anyone hanging out at the Woodward Dream Cruise today?
Yes, many people who live along Woodward consider it to be the bane of their existence. And I'm not really a car guy. But I've come to appreciate how incredible it is that 1.5 million people congregate along Woodward Avenue on the third Saturday of every August to watch 40-50K classic cars cruise up and down the road. It really is an amazing sight to see.
My parents are of the generation who used to cruise Woodward...so I've been regaled with tales of the Totem Pole and other former Woodward Avenue landmarks.
We bought our first house in Birmingham in 1995 (the year of the first Cruise) and were just eight houses or so west of Woodward. We are now in our third house but are still only a 1/2 mile west of Woodward. So, whether we've liked it or not, we've been in the cruise pretty much every year. For a few of these years, we've even been some of the annoying people tooling around in golf carts.
Any classic car owners or lovers here? Do you love or hate the Cruise? Any interesting stories from past cruises?
Look for me in Birmingham. I'll be the guy in the Michigan shirt...in anticipation of being up in Ann Arbor for the UTL scrimmage.
