Metro Detroiters love their wheels, and summertime here means a series of anxiously anticipated car shows and cruises.
One of the biggest classic car cruises of the season takes place this Saturday as the 16th annual Woodward Dream Cruise rolls down the storied Woodward Avenue cruising strip.
Can't wait for Saturday? I'm posting a few photos from last weekend's Down on Main Street classic car show in Clawson. We got some great shots as the weather was decent this year, and there were, as always, a lot of great classics.
The Clawson show, now in its twelfth season, happens the Saturday before the Dream Cruise and is always the perfect way to get revved up for the festivities out on Woodward.
Check out my story, Classic cars congregate in Clawson "Down on Main Street", for more about the Clawson car show.
Cruising Woodward is a long-time tradition in this area. Check out this vintage Midwest Guest story, Car Crazy, for more about the event's history and some memories from my father and myself about cruising Woodward over the years.
You can also check out the book, Cruisin' the Original Woodward Avenue by the Woodward Heritage Team. My dad enjoyed this little volume full of vintage pictures when I gave it to him as a Father's Day gift.
