Woodward Dream Cruise update for August 17, 2011

For the 200th post of this blog, I present continuing coverage of the Woodward Dream Cruise, featuring more clips from WXYZ-TV's YouTube Channel.

Mary Conway talks with people already crusing up and down Woodward.

As you can see, people are coming from all over the Midwest both to ride down Woodward and to watch the passing parade. Dream Cruise really is a major cultural and economic event. With the squadron of 50 Chevy Volts, it will also be an environmental one. Now, all three spheres of sustainability will be present.

Also, I was so impressed with Mary Conway's performance that I left the following comment to this video.
I've been watching Mary Conway on WXYZ for 22 years, ever since I moved here from Los Angeles. I have to say that this is the happiest and most sincerely enthusiastic I've ever seen her in all this time. It looks like she's having the time of her life covering this year's Woodward Dream Cruise.
I'm looking forward to seeing if she can keep this up all week.

As for the Corvette in the clip, the Detroit Free Press reported that it had plenty of company today.

Some prefer new cars and others classics. Some live in Michigan while others arrived from all over the U.S. and Canada. Some are first-timers while others have been coming for years.

But all those parked in a lot along Woodward in Bloomfield Hills today share one thing in common: a love of Chevrolet Corvettes.

About 400 of the cars are expected to arrive at the Radisson Hotel and then join in the Corvettes on Woodward cruise at 7:30 tonight.
Corvette drivers really love their cars, as you can see from this next video.

Bruce Babiarz has owned his 1964 Corvette more than half his life.

Mary Conway came back late this afternoon to share her enthusiasm with the audience and update them on the event.

People are already out enjoying the classic cars on Woodward.

It's not just the amateurs, both the collectors and the spectators, who enjoy the Dream Cruise. The professionals were out there today, too.

Car designers enjoy the Dream Cruise by showing off the cars that inspired them.

And that's it for tonight's coverage of the Dream Cruise!
