Woodward Dream Cruise

The second week of August was a busy one for the team. The morning after returning from the CAR MBS, we headed down to Royal Oak for the crème de la crème of car shows: the Woodward Dream Cruise. Held every August on a multi-mile stretch of the infamous Woodward Avenue, the Dream Cruise attracts hundreds of thousands of cars and millions of enthusiasts, collectors and curious passersby. The SAE Foundation invited the team to bring Car 51 to their display in Eaton Performance Park, located right in the middle of the mayhem at 13 mile and Woodward.

Though it was a typical Michigan humidity-enhanced summer day, team members had a great time talking with cruisers, staff and guests of Eaton Corporation. The Dream Cruise is very much a family-affair and we had the pleasure of talking with the old, the middle and the future of hot rodding in America; including many potential race car drivers.

Thank you to all of the folks at the SAE Foundation for sharing your day with us. A special thanks to Rick Rachner, Ginny Whipple and Nancy Lewis at SAE for all of the helpful direction and making arrangements for our spot at the Performance Park.

Go Green. Go White. Go Fast,
