Wayne: You will have to say hi to the Metro and parts east crew for me.  August 16 is the Woodward Ave ( Detroit) Dream Tour - 40,000 (you read that right) cars and 1.5 million car nuts. VW's are well represented there.  I can't say no.  Dan (MY72BUG)

The Woodward Ave. Dream Cruise is the biggest one day event for antique cars in the world.  It is only 2 1/2 hours away from me and MY72BUG and I attended and it was AWESOME in every sense of the word! Some of the sites in the 8 lanes of semi-grid-lock:
1. A guy passes me in a World War II U.S.army half-track immaculately restored complete with 50 calibre machine gun
2. A couple pulls up in a 1908 Buick (yup, a 100 year old car!)
3. Fire engines, trucks, rods,exotics,big $ antiques, bikes, hearses, a bus which houses a Jaccuzi, a mega-pick up truck with a canvas liner in the back and some bikini clad passengers in a mobile pool and the freakin' Batmobile!
4. I was flagged down and invited to pull up a piece of pavement with a bug club from Michigan - a great crew with some stunning buggies, bugs, vans, ' verts and Bajas.  There was a ' 62 ' vert so freaking mint it looked like it belonged in a show room window and a 21 window that could bring tears to a glass eye.
5 Michigan State Police there in a 1991 pursuit Camaro ( like the copper said: How else can we catch some of these guys?)
This was the America I love- not the 7:00 news crap and the politics just a million plus car nuts driving everything under the sun and having one hell of a time.  I'm invited back next year so I did something right.  Consider it Lee.  Some Kiwi is reputed to have flown his ride to the show just to see and be seen on Woodward.
