Pre Woodward Cruise.
Even thou it is a week before the Woodward Cruise, things are heating up. I went to Woodard Ave yesterday to see what action there was. I started racing on Woodard in 1958, and I have built a few cars just for that. In Woodward's haydays, there was a lot of action. (understatement)
There were many cars on Woodard Ave yesterday and I had a good time talking with many of the guys with great cars built to the "T". By Thursday night there will be 8 miles (+-) packed with great cars. By Friday night it will be 4 lanes each way bumper to bumper with the grass area on each side of the road packed with parked hotrods and people. Same on Saturday, the official Woodard Ave Cruise day.
What I find curious is that MANY of these guys with excellent high powered cars NEVER get on them and use them for what the cars were intended. When I drive a built car or truck, I am constantly red lining it. That is what I built it for. Oh well.
