GIRLS ON FILM Even those of us that never experienced cruising on Woodward in its heyday got into the action over Dream Cruise weekend. Emily and Mackensie Garlow sport the perfect Woodward fashion here, complete with poodle skirts.

PROJECT BIG BLUE Richard Gorman’s Durango-blue hot rod started life seventeen years ago as a 1930 Dodge body trailered home with a box of parts. In between came high school, marriage, and two little girls. When he found time, Gorman chopped it three inches and massaged the 350-cubic-inch V-8 with a four-barrel carburetor back to health. The $6000 paint job was finished two weeks ago, and now Gorman’s looking forward to working on its interior. The punchline? Yes, his wife is still married to him.

PICKUP DREAMS The Dream Cruise isn’t strictly about cars, and this year we noticed more trucks than ever before. This Hudson truck (left) and this GMC runner were just two examples of beautifully restored work vehicles. The GMC even sported a full woody — bedliner, that is, with body-color inset stripes to match its blood-red sheetmetal.

LITTLE RED RIDING RODS, PART TWO In Europe, they call it museum fade — after you’ve seen a hundred paintings you start to feel dizzy. It’s the same at the Woodward cruise, where even a perfect piece of hot-rod pulchritude like this red street rod starts to blend in with the fifty other red street rods.
