The 17th Annual Woodward Dream Cruise

Saturday, August 20th, 2011

9:00 am to 9:00pm

The Dream cruise this year was fun but kind of a bust. A big rainstorm early in the day had windows rolled up and spectators running for cover.

Typically this show would be bumper to bumper show cars 15 miles long throughout 4 cities here in southeast Michigan, with several hundred thousand spectators lining the streets the whole way but in this case the weather did not cooperate.

This selection of images is from the 2010 Clinton Fall Festival Car Show. Clinton is in Lenawee county, about 25 miles south west of Ann Arbor. This is the 37th year of the Clinton Fall Festival and there were more than 300 cars on display. A few of the cars were familiar from other shows during the season in Ypsilanti, Saline and Chelsea though most cars, and drivers, had ventured from other areas to attend. The weather was slightly chilly, it was the first weekend of fall, and if you like Fords this was a show to attend. In days gone by, Henry Ford had a summer house in nearby Macon Michigan.

On a cool and clear, Sunday morning with a crisp chill in the September air, we packed up the camera, dawned our long sleeves and drove to Riverside park for the highly anticipated, 14th Annual Ypsilanti Orphan Car Show.

Although the official "orphan car" definition is elusive, the common meaning is, an automobile whose parent company no longer produces that particular make, however I do know that the Chevrolet Corvair is an exception around here because it was produced at our local Willow Run assembly plant.
