Ok time for another little extract from the Woodward Dream Cruise and associated events……. Firstly an interesting trivia type one……

At the Mustang Memories show on the Sunday after the WDC (tip, if you go to the WDC stay for the Mustang show the next day!!)
Another Mustang guy said I might want to meet this man….

A little puzzled I asked why………

…….. in a former life at Ford before retiring he was the engineer who came up with the colour name “Gotta Have It Green”. And now runs a vintage F150 ice cream truck that goes to car shows. So pretty interesting for me as I own a GHIG.

For those that don’t know, the Woodward Dream Cruise takes place in Detroit, usually the 3rd Saturday of August each year. It is the largest moving car show in the World, usually attended by about 55,000 vehicles and 1.5 million people, spread over the 16 miles of Woodward Avenue that it covers. The road is 4 lanes in each direction, and on the Saturday it will be totally full and crawl along. But people will be cruising from the Tues or Wed onwards, when it moves a lot better.

Most parking lots along the route will become ad-hoc or organized car shows, plus manufacturers displays etc. Then on the Saturday 9 mile rd also becomes Mustang alley, with about 600 Mustangs parked long it.

We have attended numerous times over the years since we lived in Detroit from 1999-2002. So any questions then I am happy to answer them. It’s definitely one of those bucket list trips to make.

Then on the day after (the Sunday) there is a big mustang show which is worth attending, we usually volunteer as judges for it and have now judged on three visits.
