Woodward Dream Cruise Part 3 - General Motors

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.

Last and technically least is the General Motors display which is located between 13 Mile and 14 Mile Road along Woodward Avenue. The GM display is by far the smallest and because of that, it has the fewest number of vehicles. Unlike the Chrysler and Ford areas, the GM display doesn’t feature privately owned vehicles – instead using every bit of space for production vehicles, customized show vehicles and a couple race cars.
