GM to display 120 cars at 2005 Woodward Dream Cruise
Detroit, Michigan – To celebrate the 2005 Woodward Dream Cruise, General Motors will display more than 120 cars and trucks in two separate venues, both open to the public.
Over 40,000 cruisers are planning to participate and an estimated audience of over 1 million viewers expected to populate the sixteen mile-long corridor along Woodward, from the Michigan Sate Fair Grounds to Wide-Track Boulevard in downtown Pontiac, Michigan.
At the Athens Coney Island on the west side of Woodward, south of Fourteen Mile Road, GM is presenting a salute to open-air motoring. An impeccably restored 1941 GMC open-top fire truck, a 1949 Oldsmobile Futuramic convertible, a 1953 Corvette, a rare 1953 Buick Skylark convertible, a brilliant red 1959 Eldorado convertible, and a 1967 Camaro Indy Pace Car convertible are a small part of the display of drop-top classics from the GM Heritage Center to be found here.
As well, a one-of-a-kind dual-windshield 1931 Cadillac V16 Phaeton will be joined by a 2006 supercharged, Northstar-powered Cadillac XLR-V roadster.
Established in 2004, the General Motors Heritage Center, located in Sterling Heights, Michigan, brings together vehicles, artifacts and archives that reflect and project the Corporation
