Here's a few that I snapped while I was there....
Here's a few more........
I'm headed down there again today.. I left early yesterday 'cause of the rain.... That sucked! I'll post a lot more when I get back this evening... Later!
Where you at dueces? I literally live within walking distance of woodward. I walked down last night to watch the cars drive by. People been out cruising since last tuesday.
Last night was a good time. Pretty calm. My son and I were near 14mi. It was exciting for me to have he keep saying "look at that one, and that one!". He liked it much better than a static show. Repeatedly thanking me for taking him. THAT is what made the day for me.
Police were trying to shut things down by 9pm... Aggrevating..
Growing up, it was not an organized, commercialized thing. It was just cruising..
BTW, anyone catch the primered, w/black steelies, 27 roadster? I caught a glimpse, but could not see the whole car. It was one of the only traditional cars I saw..
Well we did have to call the cops a few times. I love me some hots rods but we have some arse-hat in one of those new ugly Comaros laying down rubber in a residential area full of kids. But that is just stupidity at its best. How small is your penis that you have to endanger the lives of residence to show us how much money you wasted to enlarge and ego and lack of manhood. There is absolutely no reason to do 65 in a marked 25 zone. I have a sport bike and never pulled this kind of crap
ON the other note. I think i saw that coupe but some mini van passed it and blocked most of the view.
end of day sunday, but there will be a few stragglers mon and tuesday night. and few the following weekend. I have been within walking distance of the cruise for 8 years. even threw a few cruise parties. I glad we moved here. cuz i will always have a car cruise to go to.
Technically the cruise is over 2100 hrs on saturday night. But people still park and cruise on sunday.
I met a couple from scandinavia, last night. They came just fro the cruise.
we cruised on Friday & Saturday in the rain..
Parked at the SHELL station at 13 mile on Friday..
NO place to park truck & race car saturday, so we cruised.
good turnout dispite the weather.

Thats my friend Bill's car.
Anything happening down there today? Thinkin about driving the Riv down there. I'm bummed I missed the Broken Dream cruise.

That is the one! Through the sea of bling, it caught my eye. I really liked it. Strange how its subtle style made it stand out! Is it yours? Any more pics?
On a side note, I understood some of the reasons the cops wanted to settle things down. We saw the normal fools doing their normal dumb things. Like any show, there is always one or two that have to "show-off"..
I got the hell out of there before the feds (cops) telling everyone to clear out! So I left the area (the hangout) a little after 4 pm. I did take a lot of pictues today. I'll post those a little later on..
People are cruisin today. An ok little car show at 13 and Woodward with no hassle.
That's where I was all day... By the way, I got your email.... What's up???
Here's a few I snapped...While I will mostly show 1964 and earlier cars, a few of these may be 1965 and newer vehicles in order to give you a wider sense of the Cruise. I'll post more later if I can make the time. After so much time on Woodward the last few days, I'm a little behind on my chores...
Thanks for the pics, please post MORE.
Thanks for putting these up.
Thanks for posting! Got more?
Very cool, Mark, thanks. Slim
any more pictures or info on that coe
A few more....
I really wish I did...I caught that shot Friday night through the windshield of my car and lost it in traffic...never saw it again. If we're lucky, maybe someone else got a better shot of it and is willing to share here.
I was there Saturday only...rained until 6pm or so. Here are some pics I took:
And a few more... The black / white '57 150 is mine:
Here's a few more of mine......
A few more......
And a few more...Enjoy! -Mark
Okay, here's a couple off topic ones...
I give you 'The FIAT Twins' !! These young ladies represent FIAT at events around the globe.
And now for something REALLY off topic, the new Mopar Underground concept Jeep Nukizer ( New Kaiser play on words I suppose...) They should build this-now.
Okay, back now to our regularly scheduled topic.
....and a few more.
