Car Shows

Auto shows are one of the more interesting things to do on a nice summer day. They can be found all over, some are outside in parking lots, shopping malls lots, or local parks but at the mercy to the weather and some are inside air conditioned environments like community centers or local businesses. Auto Shows are growing in popularity and numbers. Most auto shows are annual events held once or twice a year in the northern states and mid-west because they are limited to the five warm summer months. In the southern or western states they can have auto shows year round or again in air conditioned venues. I was totally impressed by the condition of the cars and trucks I saw in California and Nevada. The weather there is just perfect for preserving classic cars. Auto shows are a great way to get out an enjoy the summer weather looking at classic cars and trucks. Some owners of these cars have spent considerable time and money restoring and maintaining the cars, it's a labor of love for most that truly love the vehicle and it's great someone does. Have you been to a junk yard lately? That's where they would end up if not loved and maintained. They are regularly attended by automotive industry representatives, dealers, auto journalists as well as car enthusiasts. The current auto show, also known as a motor show or car show, is a public exhibition of current automobile models, older classic cars, debuts, concept cars, or out-of-production classics. Most auto shows occur once or twice a year and we would be happy to list any auto shows you suggest. Just click here to send us your recommendations for an auto show listing.

Woodward Dream Cruise

Detroit MI - Recurring Event

3rd Saturday in August each year.

Did you know that the Woodward Dream Cruise actually started as a small fundraiser to raise money for a soccer field in Ferndale, Michigan? The official Woodward Avenue Dram Cruise route is a 16-mile radius and runs through many nine participating communities. Parking is both ample and scarce, depending on when or where you are locating.

In August 1995, Nelson House and a group of volunteers looked to relive and recreate the nostalgic heydays of the 50s and 60s, when youth, music and Motor City steel roamed Woodward Avenue, America’s first highway. That year, 250,000 people participated—nearly ten times the number expected. The rest, as they say, is history.

Today, the Woodward Dream Cruise is the world’s largest one-day automotive event, drawing 1.5 million people and 40,000 classic cars each year from around the globe—from as far away as New Zealand, Australia, Japan and the former Soviet Union. North American cruisers from California, Georgia, Canada and all points in between caravan to Metro Detroit to participate in what has become, for many, an annual rite of summer.
