Woodward Dream Cruise Part 1 - Ford

While the main attractions at Detroit’s annual Woodward Dream Cruise are the tens of thousands of privately owned classic and custom cars cruising the famous route, the American automakers have capitalized on the popularity of the event with big, prominent displays that serve as some of the most popular static attractions along the Dream Cruise path. Each year, the Chrysler Group has a massive display at the corner of Woodward Avenue and 13 Mile Road with the General Motors display just a half mile or so up the road. On the other hand, Ford Motor Company opts to close off an entire road that runs perpendicular to Woodward Avenue and when you incorporate the many parking lots along 9 Mile Road in Ferndale – Ford’s display easily covers more than a mile of real estate at the event.

The Ford Motor Company display is arguably the best of the corporate automaker offerings--featuring more cars and covering more ground than any other display. But while Ford brings out a nice array of new models, the biggest draw is Mustang Alley – a collection of hundreds of privately owned Mustangs stretching along 9 Mile Road and through the parking lots along that piece of road. Ford Motor Company also has featured displays of their Ford Racing activities, fun for the kids, food for everyone and even a bunch of stands where you can sign up to get a free shirt – usually featuring the Mustang.
