Anybody can go to a dealer and look at a Ferrari and say it's lovely. In most cases, a Ferrari would be worth taking a picture of to show off to your friends so they can look at it and say "pretty sure that's a Lambo dude." There are however places where a Ferrari is just another car. These places include Monaco, Monterey, and the Woodward Dream Cruise.

The Woodward Cruise is different from these places. In Monaco or Monterey, a Ferrari isn't a big deal because EVERYBODY has a Ferrari. A Ferrari delivered your mail this morning. On Woodward, a Ferrari isn't that big of a deal because there is so much more to look at. While anybody can go to a dealer and look at a 458, have fun looking for a dealer specializing in any of these:

This is based on a Dodge Challenger, and looks straight out of the movie Cars

Kind of like a firetruck in training.

A couple driving their V8 front engined cars that were never meant to be front engined or have a V8. Both featured rather sizable tires and a healthy rumble.

Another thing you get at Woodward is rare cars. Very rare.

This years Dream Cruise was truly in a class of one. Amazing exotics, crazy customs, all driven by amazing people who all share a love of cars. I'm leaving Woodward this year smelling like gasoline with shoes covered in coolant. My feet hurt from walking, my neck hurts from turning and I have a wicked sunburn and raccoon eyes I'm going to have a tough time explaining at school tomorrow. The crazy thing is, despite all this, I cannot wait for next year.
