2006 Woodward Dream Cruise
This was Art Richardson's and my fourth trip to the Woodward Dream Cruise! It was almost like last year - rain in the morning, then it somewhat cleared up later in the day. The Ford sponsored "Mustang Alley" car show took place again this year with over 600 Mustangs registered! A big "Thanks" to my good friend Art who either watched to make sure I didn't run into anyone while I was simultaneously driving and taking pictures or took the pix out the passenger window for me while we were driving. It was a great time.

For the first time, I actually had time to go out to Woodward Ave on Thursday night before the cruise. This is actually a really good time to go because there are tons of cars and you can actually drive the cruise route instead of creeping in bumper-to-bumper traffic on Saturday (the official day of the cruise). I was able to snap a few shots from behind the wheel tonight and have them below. It was interesting - Chevy was out in force driving the new Camaro (along with a 69 beside it) on a flatbed truck up and down the cruise route. They also had a huge Camaro mural on the side of a building. I'll be going back Saturday for the actual cruise and will have more pictures to add to this page then!
