I spent the last four days of my life in Detroit, Michigan. I vacationed there with my Dad, and older brother Bob, the first thing people will ask when you say you vacationed in Detroit is...WHY? And the answer is simple, Woodward Ave, and the Woodward Dream Cruise.

Detroit is the automotive home in the United States, and it has an iconic road called Woodward Ave, that goes from the heart of downtown Detroit 26 miles north and west out to Pontiac, Michigan, it literally makes a loop in Pontiac, and heads all the way back to downtown. This road was used as a test all for the iconic car brands that call or use to call Detroit home like Ford, General Motors, and Chrysler.

So every year in late August there is a mass gathering called the Woodward Dream Cruise (check out he website by clicking here) it is the "World's Largest Cruise" and for one day thousands upon thousands of cars, old, new, custom, you name it, drive up and down the iconic road for thousands and thousands of people to look at and admire. I saw so many incredible cars during my time at the cruise (including my dad's 1976 Cadillac Sedan De Ville) I wanted to put together a small gallery of some of the cars that I saw while I was in Detroit this past weekend at the 2021 Woodward Dream Cruise.
