Mustangs Invade the Annual Woodward Dream Cruise!

Saturday, August 17, 2013, is a big day in southeast Michigan. The annual Woodward Dream Cruise, the largest one-day classic-car event in the world, will take place. What makes this year’s cruise even more exciting is the annual Mustang Alley will transform into a celebration of almost 50 years of Ford Mustang production!

The Woodward Dream Cruise attracts more than 1.5 million visitors and 40,000 antique and classic cars from all over North America. The event stretches from suburban Detroit north to Pontiac to salute everything automotive.

The intersection of 9 Mile Road and Woodward Avenue in Ferndale, just north of Detroit City limits, will be home to Mustang Alley, with more than 800 classic and current-era models in the spotlight. Also on display will be all the 2014 Mustang models, like the 662-horsepower Shelby GT500, Mustang GT and V6 coupe with the Performance Package. Other Ford vehicles will include the Focus ST and Fiesta ST. If you haven’t seen the new F-150 Tremor sport truck in the flesh, now’s your chance!

Also, try to sneak away from work or whatever plans you may have on Friday, August 16, because at 4 p.m., Jacques Brent, Ford Marketing Manager, will deliver a keynote speech and cut the ribbon at Mustang Alley.

And if you’re building or modifying a Ford at home, know that Mustang Alley is where you need to get inspiration and parts, since Ford Racing will be hanging out, with street and strip crate engines as well as a handful of engineers and techs available to answer any questions you may have about performance, installation, tuning or more!

Other Ford partners that will also have displays in Mustang Alley include Falken Tire, Roush, MRT, HPI, Dembeste, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Mustang Club of America, Capaldi Racing, Shelby American and Classic Design Concepts.

While we’re talking Mustangs, that 50th anniversary of the Mustang is nearly upon us: April 17, 2014. In anticipation, Ford has launched Mustang Countdown, an online video series. the debut episode called “Where It All Started: The Mustang 1 Concept,” which takes you back to 1962 with rare and unique footage, exclusive interviews, and much more.

JDaniels I wish I were up there in two hours to watch the ribbon cutting ceremony, and to be bothersome to the techs; but I'm afraid I will have to miss it, as I'm stuck in Florida at the moment, but my heart is in the right place!    Have fun!  JDaniels
