[PICS] The Corvettes of the 2018 Woodward Dream Cruise


We came. We saw. We cruised.

When it comes to the Woodward Dream Cruise there really isn’t much more we can say. It’s the world’s largest one-day car show. Roughly 1 million people and 40,000 classic cars gather along a 16 mile stretch of America’s first highway, Woodward Avenue just north of Detroit. For comparison, that’s equal to roughly 20 Corvettes at Carlisle shows crammed into 1 day.

While the official cruise day falls on the 3rd Saturday of August each year, eager enthusiasts are out and about days and even weeks in advance of that. Cars generally roll along at a snail’s pace during the WDC’s peak hours which makes it nice for spectators. It’s essentially a rolling car show that comes to you. In addition to the sweet rides on the road, cars of every make and model imaginable fill parking lots along Woodward from Ferndale in the South to Pontiac in the North.

Last Saturday marked our annual visit to Woodward and all that it offers. This year we spent our time in Birmingham roughly right in the middle of the cruise route. Over the course of the day, we wandered the Chevrolet, Corvette Racing, and Lingenfelter. We also checked out the booths of Barrett-Jackson and Nowicki Autosport and a couple of the local Corvette clubs. Old Woodward itself – adjacent to Woodward Avenue – hosted several car clubs. Groups of Model A’s, AMX’s, Cobra’s, and others lined the streets as attendees took in all the sights.

Over the course of our day we noted Corvettes of every generation either on the road or parked in one of the many parking spots along Woodward. Whatever era of Corvette you were looking for you had no problem finding it last weekend. Seems like we say it every year, but the Woodward Dream Cruise is truly a bucket list event. If you’ve never been, block out your calendar now and get to planning your trip to metro Detroit next year.
