Classic Americana hits the Motor City: Woodward Dream Cruise 2013

A throwback to the 1950s and 60s when people cruised in their cars along Woodward Avenue looking for friends or a street race with other hot rods, the Woodward Dream Cruise was the brainchild of Michigan resident Nelson House. The world’s largest one-day automotive event draws about 1.5m people, 40,000 classic cars each year from around the globe and brings in over $56m annually to the Metro Detroit area. This year marks the 19th anniversary of the annual classic car cruise
