Don't know what we're doing but if you have some businesses in mind I can scout them out/talk to them on our behalf. It would be nice to have a DeLorean Parade down Woodward. I have suggested it on FB and it was received better than average.

Woodward Dream Cruise 2016 - Saturday, August 20, 2016

Woodward Dream Cruise 2016 - Saturday, August 20, 2016 (the 22nd Anniversary of the Dream Cruise)

This year's Woodward Dream Cruise is only two weeks away. (weren't we just at DCS 2016 a few weeks ago?)

The World's Largest Car Show and Car Cruise needs your DeLoreans. There is no better destination to pilot
our DeLoreans, driving past crowds of people who have such a great admiration of John Z. DeLorean and who
enjoy seeing our DeLoreans, cruising up and down Woodward Ave. This is a multi-club DeLorean event, with
DeLoreans from all over the Midwest and Canada. With over 50,000 vehicles attending, driving or parking
next to Woodward Ave, and over a Million spectators, this Cruise is THE EVENT for all you "Gear Heads".

As with years past, we will have a few DMC POGs join us at the cruise on Saturday. This year we have no car
display (formally), but we do plan to be cruising Woodward, and making a few stops as a group along the way.

Check out the official Woodward Cruise website for more info: http://www.woodwarddreamcruise.com

There is "cruising" all week, but our official DeLorean cruising is usually limited to Friday and Saturday.

See you in a couple of weeks.

Note: Weather permitting, I plan to bring one of my Custom DeLoreans to Woodward, for it's first time there.

Bloomfield Hills Township runs the Charity Car Show Display at the MB Dealership during each year's Woodward Dream Cruise.
Tony Swann and I have "taken turns" pre-registering a block of spaces the past 5 years, with others registering directly online.

Responsibilities change almost every year, so we had to remind them of our DMC Clubs' interest by May or June (each Spring).
This year, Tony and I were a little busy with DCS 2016, so we had hoped someone in MI would take care of this event.

In any case, you can try to contact the committee or submit your own registration form this week, to keep up the MB tradition.


I will be calling later today. I will be posting this on my FB Page as well (click on it in my signature). You do not have to like my page to respond. I was wondering how many will show so I can give them a heads up.

Price is $50 now until August 15th, and $60 day of.

Let me know.

Formal inquiry:

If I don't ask I don't know. Will follow up in the a.m. To carshow@bloomfieldtwp.org

I will also email out the details of what I find to Josh.

To whom it may concern,

I am inquiring about parking for the 2016 Woodward Dream Cruise.

I am a member of http://www.ohiodeloreans.com/ and was wondering, besides registering, what would we need to secure 4 to 10 spots for our DeLoreans.

Also if we mailed the check on the 12th and it arrives after the 15th, would we still owe the $60 dollars per car? Vs the $50 or alternatively can we hold spots and our members pay on site?

We have been at your location in the past and would like to continue the tradition for the sixth year.

Any information or assistance that you can provide would be most appreciated.

Thank you!

Respectfully submitted,
Douglas C. Brooks

I will ask for more, but 4 to 10 spots, if I have to buy upfront, that's $200 to $500 bucks.....$200 is good, $500 is stretching it....so a head count would be desirable.... phone number to text me is on my FB page in my signature and pinned to the top of the page.

Just got off of the phone with Bloomfield, they are packed, only two open spaces at this time. the term "like a hoe on dollar day giving out .50 cent coupons comes to mind".

I did let the gentleman know that we would be interested for 2017 and send me anything I need to fill out. Gave him my email address.

I will recon some other areas of Woodward that meet what you have above. I do have M-brew that may be interested. I will grab the D and go there tomorrow and meet them. I will post pictures as well on Friday for your viewing. I have to ask if that street is blocked off during the Cruise. It is shaded.

They are an upscale pub about 50 feet off of Woodward on Vester Street in Ferndale.


The areas reconned will be on my page located in my signature in classic FB panoramic view so you can see how it is in a 180 view. I will also mirror this on Ohio's FB page, our page on here and Detroit Motor City's FB page.

https://www.facebook.com/ProjectDelorean88mph You do not have to "Like" my page to view the pictures.

Generally Ferndale sites are no or low cost (about $20) you are about the same distance as MB. I will also see how that ballfield has changed off of 13 mile and Woodward and shoot pictures for you guys/gals as well.

UPDATE: Well we have some help. DeLorean Motor City DeLorean Club of Ohio DeLorean Midwest Connection Julie Strong. Even though. Trying to get visibility.

Downtown Ferndale see the D Rex and DeLorean limo in the comments. Our potential 15 DeLorean's during the The Official Page of the Woodward Dream Cruise generates about 20,000 visitors with about $100,000 or more in increased income for ONE DAY of show with our DeLoreans. Avg per person $5 bucks spent at a host business products. Text me at XXXX to arrange a meeting. Thank you!

I have never had to pay for a space on Woodward. Our cars are unique. A business would kill to get 100 to 200k in extra business ($5 to $10 dollars per person) if they are not in Prime Woodward territory (Ferndale).

Its like you don't ask your girlfriend if you want to do something, you tell her, if you tell her right you don't look like an A$$. You look confident.

For some reason I can't do the individual links from my work computer....

So go to my FB page in my signature and the prime location is pinned to the top of my page. You do not have to "like" my page to view nor have a FB account. You may have to do a captcha to prove that you are not a bot though.

I have to meet with the Ferndale Downtown Authority later today and see if we can do this. M Brew has a "Vester Camping" Craze going on with Vintage trailers.

Other spots I have selected are down my page. I will keep you updated on developments.

I have to give our intent to MB Dealership just south of 16 mile east side of Woodward in May 2017, may even let them know in April.

More to follow with that.
