My 54 and 47 Chevy trucks. The 54 has 35000 original miles on it. The 47 is a bit of a project.
These were my grandpas trucks. The blue 47 was the first vehicle I ever drove. The 54 still has a stain from where I spilled my ice cream on the dash when I was a kid. Gpa always stopped and got me ice cream when we hauled grain to town.

1965 Ford Thunderbird 300 HP 390 V-8, I like the 65 because it was the first year with front disk brakes - I built this one from 2 65's the interior and drive train came out of one that had severe rot the body came from another that had a fire so the owner stripped it down to the shell - took 6 months of all my free time - had to make a couple of the parts myself. Used it as my daily driver for 4 months as I was building the cherokee next to it

Nice to see so many cool cars!
Mine is a '66 Dodge Dart with a 225 Slant 6. It was bought new in CA by my great grandma. Upgraded or breathed on a little. Still has the slant, with headers and a cam. Lowered a bunch, widened steelies and disk brakes. High back seats and seatbelts have been added as well. It REALLY needs paint (and I work for a body shop...grrr). Runs 19.75s all day long at the track...LOL

Classic car buffs, ANY car buffs really, gear heads, nostalgia nuts, etc., who have not made the Woodward Dream Cruise yet, really should put it on their "to do" list. Right up at the top! It's touted as the worlds biggest one day car event (actually, locals will have been "cruising" for at least a week in advance). Today was the 20th anniversary of when it was first organized, and, well, you had to be here to really comprehend it.

It's supposed to be all about the cars. I think in addition to the cars though, it's about a few hundred thousand people that line both side of this 30 mile long strip of road (Woodward Ave./US1) that get together and share something that's of a common interest. That's the cool part. Conversations easily struck up with strangers over and over again as you share this event with others that have come together for the same reason!

The people that are just now seeing it for the first time are very easy to spot. They're the ones who can't stop pointing, eyes get big, jaws slack in disbelief every time something new or "different" drives by! Cars and nostalgia at it's absolute finest. Makes no difference how many of these shows you make, there's always something new. Something you may have not seen in many years..... yet you recognize it immediately!

Woodward runs between Detroit and Pontiac in SE MI. Google "Woodward Dream Cruise".

I mentioned several hundred thousand people, I was a little light. This morning's paper put the number at 1.3 MILLION people! That's for a Saturday one day show... unless you count Friday evening! It sounds like a big zoo, but it's not. There are no booths or similar set up every hundred feet for the most part. For one day, it's not worth the trouble. This event is about cars, people, and memories.

Check out the pic at the bottom of the link below. It's in an area that might be described as "show central", but it's pretty typical of many areas along Woodward during the Dream Cruise. Cars parked up and down both sides of the road, in many cases several cars deep. Now add the ones that are actually "cruising", going up and down the road.

BTW, burn outs, done in a reasonably sane manner, are generally put up with in the Pontiac area. They can be deafening, and the smell of burning rubber lingers for a while afterwards, so that's not for everyone. Many (including myself) sure get a big grin out of it though! Other areas really frown on the practice, but they're generally bumper to bumper anyway. -Al

A little over 1 month ago, had this on trailer behind MH for Bonneville Speedweek which was cancelled due to rain and flooded course. So on way home we stopped in Moab, UT and then drive the all original stock 37 Chevy Ute (from Australia) into and all through Arches National Park:


I am setting this 52 GMC pickup to flat-tow behind the MH and can avoid the trailer. Full Jaguar suspension, 350 SBC/700R4, this is in-progress pic:
