The Woodward Dream Cruise is billed as the largest one day car event in the world with over 40,000 special interest vehicles and a million or more spectators lining the Cruise route, but it’s spread out to the week or two before the actual cruise, with car meets, unofficial car shows, and regular old cruising on Woodward. Many people prefer to do the cruise on Friday instead of the official cruise on Saturday because traffic isn’t as congested. The cars can move faster than a walking pace, so there aren’t as many concerns about overheating, but there are still plenty of cars to watch. By the late afternoon on the Friday before the Dream Cruise, cars start backing up at the traffic lights and the stretch between 12 Mile and 14 Mile roads, ground zero for the Cruise, ias almost as densely packed with cool cars as it is on the Cruise itself. Here’s some video taken just before nightfall. While daytime cruising is fun, historically, cruising on Woodward was done after the sun went down.
