60 smarts at the 2008 Woodward Dream Cruise!!

All I can say about this year's Woodward Dream Cruise is...WOW!! What a specacular success it was for our whole smart community. We had upwards of SIXTY smarts there. Some of us were expecting between 15 and 20...and thought that would be good! We all owe a great big "Thank You" to Rick Cortright, all the folks at smart Center Bloomfield and our own Roger Stam for all their efforts.

smartUSA had a video documentary team there to document the whole day, and I can't wait to see the end result. They also had a four car "smart stack" in downtown Birmingham...right in the middle of the cruise. You can see pictures of the stack here. I think the stack pictures start at #45.

I posted a whole bunch of pictures here and, if you were there, you're probably in one or two of them. I will follow with some video as soon as I am able.

If you could not participate this year, make sure you try to make it in 2009. Can you imagine the sight of SIXTY smarts parading down Woodward Avenue in front of 2 million people?? WHAT A BLAST!! And you need to know I did not hear one negative comment from anyone in the crowd. I did see a lot of smiles aimed in our direction, though.

Anyway, a GREAT time was had by all, and thanks again for all who made it possible.

I can't wait until next year!

Hey Billo-

Some nice photos there. I lived in that area for most of my life. I went to the very first Dream Cruise, and a few after that, before moving away. And, of course, we used to cruise Woodward back when it was just "cruising Woodward" on a Saturday night.

Looks like you had a great time! I was kind of hoping there would be some pictures of the places I remember: smarts in front of Pasquales, or Duggans, or lined up in the Northwood parking lot, or in front of the Onion Roll Deli. Or out front of Mr. B's in Royal Oak. If you have any of those, please share. It brings me a little closer to home!

Thanks again.

Fantastic! We saw the Dream Cruise a few years back, and know it's quite the scene--so glad all the smarties were there.

That's great! Loved the pictures. The "stack" was neat too.
