2000 Dream Cruise, Day One

Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines. Or, gun them. Or, as hundreds of kids already lining the streets of Detroit’s Woodward Avenue were obviously taught by their fathers to say, "Light ‘em up!"

Woodward Dreaming: Dream Cruise 2000

2000 Turin Auto Show

The Turin auto show, which opened in the Northern Italian city on June 10, is no longer the international event it once was.

1999 Woodward Dream Cruise, Part III

Look at me, look at me! You’ll have to excuse this anxious driver.
