DETROIT DREAMIN' The Woodward Dream Cruise, the world's largest one-day celebration of car culture, attracts more than one million visitors and 40,000 cars. For the 12th time in 12 years, muscle cars, street rods, custom, collector and 'special interest' vehicles flocked the streets of Detroit - and neither rain nor high gas prices deterred the visitors for Dream Cruise 2006. This mid-summer classic celebrates the heydays of the 'Fifties and 'Sixties when Woodward was the heart and soul of American cruising. Combined with the music and fashions of the era, the Woodward Dream Cruise celebrates the nostalgia of bygone days in the cars that made them so special. Cruisers and spectators drove along a 16-mile route of nine communities including Berkley, Birmingham, Bloomfield Hills, Bloomfield Township, Ferndale, Huntington Woods, Pleasant Ridge, Pontiac and Royal Oak.
