August 15, 2015 - Woodward Dream Cruise - M1 Woodward Ave.

Going strong since 1995, the 2015 Woodward Dream Cruise has come and gone, for some. Every year it seems the cruisers and watchers get out on Woodward earlier; this year when the snow finally melted they were already out there. It was almost as though they were always there, a DisneyWorld of cruisers under the wintery wonderland of snow. DMM personnel always head down to Woodward every night for a week before the actual Cruise date so we can get you the best coverage! It’s a little-known truth that the best days for seeing the cruisers isn’t always the official day of the cruise. This year it was probably Thursday, maybe Wednesday. Both were really good. We were especially pleased this year to see the folks at the 13 and Woodward Kroger lot letting people view cruisers from the lot without calling in the cops to run everyone off; thank you and we will be patronizing your businesses again.

It was threatening rain off and on and one night there was a double rainbow. The superstitious among us were convinced that this was a sign of a great cruise to come! Turns out they were right, coincidental or not. We saw new cruisers, old favorites, muscle cars, imports, and every variant of wheeled transportation possible. We even ran into the Magic Bus band’s VW van and said hello to the keyboardist driving the bus (Mike Bruner of Magic Bus and the classic and esteemed Rare Earth). This year the Cruise was extended through Sunday, with downtown Pontiac hosting the Thunder and Scream Cruise, a combo of motorcycles, tricked out hearses, and music. If you look close enough you can see the shaggy dog car known as Mutt Cuts from the movie Dumb and Dumber, or at least a good look alike. There were faux Beatles (The Toppermost) and Elvis at The Hunter House, Marilyn Monroe cruising in a convertible, and so much more. If you were lucky you got a glimpse of Sh’Boom!

It’s a shame the Woodward Dream Cruise is only, officially, a one day event. There is so much to see and do, it’s not really all set up until Saturday, and by Sunday you can’t even tell over a million people were there. Check out our photos and videos to get a feel for what you might be missing or to see if we saw the same things you did.
