While Ford celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Model T and the 45th anniversary of the Mustang at this year's Woodward Dream Cruise, General Motors is putting on a show of its own to fete the company's 100 years in business.

The GM "Century Cruise" kicks off on August 16 at 7:30 a.m., and rolls from the beginning of Detroit's Woodward Avenue--across the street from GM world headquarters--to the heart of the Dream Cruise festivities in Royal Oak, Mich. The GM parade will be led by an ethanol-fueled Corvette Z06; a fleet of GM vehicles from the past and present will follow behind as a sort of rolling advertisement for the world's largest automaker.

GM will also crown a Top Cruiser from the cars and trucks that take part in its roll down Woodward. Fans can see the cars at the GMNext Web site and text-vote for their favorites. The winner will be named on the same Saturday evening.

Here's a video clip provided by GM, with more on the Century Cruise:
