> Some basic info about the event:
> What is the WDC?
> It's the phenomenon known as the Woodward Dream Cruise (WDC). On the
> third Saturday in August, it attracts more than 1.5 million people
> and 30,000 muscle cars, street rods, custom, collector and special
> interest vehicles to legendary Woodward Avenue in one glorious,
> celebratory, homage to America's love affair with the automobile.
> When is the WDC?
> Saturday, August 17th, 2002 from 9am to 9pm.
> Where is the WDC?
> The Woodward Dream Cruise stretches over 16 miles of Woodward Avenue
> and goes through the seven host cities: Berkley, Birmingham,
> Ferndale, Huntington Woods, Pleasant Ridge, Pontiac and Royal Oak
> How much does it cost?
> Nothing, the WDC is FREE!
> Do I need to register my vehicle for the WDC?
> No. There is no registration fee or cruising sticker for the Woodward
> Dream Cruise -- it's a FREE EVENT! Although, if you wish to
> participate in any of the numerous car shows, park near Woodward
> Avenue or attend other related events (which are all in addition to
> the WDC) there may indeed be charges for those extras. Since the WDC
> does not govern those additional events (the city that hosts it does,
> and there are seven WDC host cities), it is impossible for us to know
> what exactly those extra charges could or may be.
> What's a Classic? (as defined by the WDC Committee)
> A "Classic" is any car (or vehicle) that:
> - creates a feeling of nostalgia
> - stimulates a memory (or)
> - fulfills a fantasy
> If you have a car in mind that you'd like to participate in the WDC,
> and it fits the description above, by all means join us!
> Remember anyone can come along. You don't have to have a old import
> everyone is invited the goal is to have a fun time and be around
> others who love old import cars heck even a v8 chevette is planning
> to come :)
