If you love cars, you know about the Woodward Dream Cruise. For the past 25 years cars come out from all across the land to cruise down Detroit’s Main Street, which runs 27 miles from Detroit north to Pontiac, Michigan. The organized gathering celebrates the ‘Woodwarding’ that began in the ’50s when car enthusiasts converged on drive-ins along the historic avenue.
If you have never been to the Dream Cruise, it is definitely bucket-list material. You will see every car imaginable. Mustangs and Ford muscle were plentiful, and it was great seeing everything from the latest Mustangs to the classics mixing it up with all the other cars.
This year Ford sponsored the silver-anniversary event and set up shop at several spots along the cruise to show off its wares. From a display of Ford Performance machines near 11 Mile Road to the annual Mustang Alley show at 9 Mile Road during the day of the cruise, there was plenty of Blue Oval machinery to enjoy on a sunny day in the Motor City.
We captured as many of the highlights from the Dream Cruise, which really gears up during the whole week leading up to the official event on Saturday, so check out the gallery below and start making your plans to see it in person next year.
