Woodward Dream Cruise 'Detroit is back.'
That's the message many were celebrating as nearly a million people converged along Woodward Avenue to celebrate the 16th Annual Woodward Dream Cruise.
Almost 40,000 classic cars from around the globe and from states such as California, Texas, Arizona, Ohio, and even Florida attended the world's largest one-day automotive event.
This event is not just about cars because it also gives an economic boost to the local Metro Detroit economy. It's estimated that 56 million dollars is generated each year, which is more revenue than any other event in Michigan including Super Bowl 40 held at the Ford Field in 2006.
MI Auto Times was there to celebrate a glorious return to the site where America's first cars were manufactured, and classic cars first cruised Woodward Avenue.
Even though it rained the mood was light-hearted as people cruising in their cars and on the side of the road cheered not only for great American classics like Ford Mustangs, Chevy Corvettes and everything in between, but also for modern-day American-made cars, like the caravan of more than a dozen all-new Buick Regal GS vehicles that paraded down the avenue.
Reactions when the crowds saw the Regals pass by ranged from wild hoots to jaw-dropping admiration, proving to us American carmakers are just as relevant today as they were back then.
Whether you are a Ford, Chrysler or GM fan, it was evident that people love American craftsmanship and cars, and though the Dream Cruise attracts people from all over the world, this underlying feeling is always the same.
Here are a few of our favorites from the cruise:
