There are many, many private clubs exclusive to older cars. This is an event open to the general public, on public roads, so anyone should be able run what they brung. Besides, all I have is a Jeep and a minivan, and I don't want to sit at home and feel sorry for myself.

Well it is a open public road so unless they close it to only cruisers then you will see new cars out there

"In addition, the Woodward Dream Cruise also welcomes cruisers of all models whose owners have either scrupulously maintained, "souped-up", or customized their car to create a unique vehicle or statement." Wikipedia. thats what it's all about and thats the way it should be

24 years and older is the rule for classic. Though I still left my 77' CJ at home because it was mostly street signs and welded rust with a 2" rough country lift. (Duct tape and Expanding foam too.) I feel that if you have a nice clean ride you can cruse. A lifted 09' JK with the doors and top off or a 95' Impala on 22"s down to the Model A Fords.
If you can build a nice ride and want to show it then this is the place. I newer Bone stock car, 83' escort wagon and the 95' Le Barron's can all be left at home.

i dont mind seeing some newer vehicles as long as they have more than rims and exhaust...just my opinion. I love the rat-rods. If anyone would rather see a new mustang vs a 65 stang you have got to be out of your mind! I see enough of those new ones in my neighborhood and at Krogers.

I really could care less. I do the Berkley Parade on Friday night, then Saturday morning make a few laps up and down Woodward. Later in the day I park the car and hit up a cruise party!

Correct me if I'm wrong. Isn't it the rule of thumb that classics take the farthest right lane and others stay middle to left?

Only thing I get interested in anymore is people lighting up their tires between M-59 and Orchard Lake (except when Sheriff bikes sit at every intersection). I don't see why a newer customized car can't get the same attention as a 60's and 70's as long as it's not an overkilled ricer. It gets a little irritating when you've got 25 Monte Carlo's and Gutlass' rollin by on 24's that cost more than the car and sound system put together.

What ever it is it should be 20-30+ years old.

However, I would not be too pleased with a '79 Chevette out there. Even if it is in mint condition.

Most people just park on the day of because a lot of old cars cant stay cool in traffic. So on the day of it makes sense that there are newer cars driving up and down looking at the old cars parked on the side.

The week before the cruise is the best time to go. At night time everyone with the fast cars that don't drive on the day of are out driving. I started going down there a couple weeks ago and now it is really starting to pick up on Friday and Saturday nights.

Has anyone seen that white El Camino out there. It looks dirty and stuff but its pro charged. Its has to be one of the fastest I've seen down there.

As long as it's cool . . . Cruise It!

I think the point of the day is to kick back and look at cool cars. Oh, and if you have a cool car then show it off. I don't care if it's a 800 horse '08 Charger or 800 horse '70 Charger. It's all good!

Me either. But, I don't want to see a rusty 1998 grand caravan in the nice car lane!

x2 on the Monte Carlo's and all that stupid shit. I like seeing unique stuff out there. Either way Woodward has way too many people.
