    Had to go back 9 pages on the forum to find a thread on The Woodward Dream Cruise? Is any one going this year 2014? It's less than a month away. Kathy and I are taking an additional day this year and gonna be up there Wednesday August, 13th. Even though they bill it as the Worlds Largest One Day Car Cruise (40,000 cars), it starts the weekend before and goes all week long, especially in the evenings.
    I was thinking the same thing! I just came here to make a post about the WDC. To be fair, cruising starts WAY before the weekend before! For those of us that live in the area, every Friday and Saturday night are a dream cruise down Woodward! I'll be out all week in my 68 Firebird and I'll be parked on the loop in Pontiac with the Widetrackers club on Saturday. Be sure to stop and say hi if you see me out!

      I was just going to start a thread here to see if anyone was going, you beat me to it John with the old thread. We are planning on going Friday morning, where are you staying? I just made reservations at the HIE in Southfield. Hotel prices have really shot up this year, place we stayed last year has doubled their price for this year. We aren't that far so can come home also but is more fun to stay.

        Maybe a new thread is a good Idea seeing the 2013 still shows up on the blog and this is for 2014. We'll be staying at our son's place in Plymouth and renting a Camaro, Challenger or Stang as we've done the past few years. That works real well for us especially with the short time and many miles. My Brother always meets us on Woodward with his '63 Tempest Wagon Super Duty 421. I forgot to mention on last nights post, many were talking about NON ethanol gas......go to PUREGAS.ORG to find exact locations and octain ratings of stations that have NON ethanol gas. We used it on Power Tour and you'll be surprised how many stations have it. We were thinking about Dugans for lunch at 11:30am on Friday.

          I can't make it this year. I'll be on a cruise.....on a boat...not in the truck or car.

            On a boat??? What a novel idea, I never knew they cruised boats.

              We can try Dugan's 11:30 on Friday, but can't guarantee it. We will miss you Bob! Have fun on your Boat Cruise. You could take a little remote car with you and cruise the deck!

                Just a shot in the dark, but Take a look at the hotels on Opdyke rd in auburn hills. There is a crowne plaza and a Hampton inn. It's about 10 minutes from square lake and Woodward. If it's an open invite, I'll plan to meet you at duggans at 11:30 on Friday. Where are you guys parking?

                  We don't have a "usual" spot to park, but it seems like we end up around 10 mile and walk to 15 and back and then cruise when we need to rest. We also enjoy the Emergency Vehicle show and Parade Friday late afternoon in downtown Ferndale. (have to check the time)

                        On my previous post I gave the wrong website for NON ETHANOL GAS. I wrote GASBUDDY.ORG, that's wrong (and I changed it above). The correct web address to locate gas stations that have NON ETHANOL GAS is: PUREGAS.ORG Sorry


                        Mike or Donna, is there a way to change the 2013 on the heading to 2014, or would we need to start a new thread?

                          Can't wait, It's like a Long Haul Power Tour mushed into 14 miles of four lane blacktop.
