This weekend was the Woodward Dream Cruise in Detroit, when thousands of the cars Detroit has produced over the years cruise up and down Woodward Avenue. It’s a serious dip into the world of chrome and leather, mag wheels and shiny grilles, candy-colored paint and engines with horsepower to spare. Russell went, had a great time, and sent along the photo above.
Cars are interesting devices. At bottom, they’re just a transportation mechanism, but they also can become so much more. Who doesn’t remember the first car that they truly loved? Mine was a bright red Mustang Ghia, circa 1974, with a fake pebbled leather top that was bright white, and bucket seats. I thought I was the King of the Road in that car.
