    May be there Fri, for sure Sat.

    Signs are posted of usual close down of M1 at 10p on Fri and 9p on Sat.
    Cruisers use the 2 lanes nearest the curb.

    Yes they force everyone, cruisers and spectators, to go home.

    That is a great idea to post link to streaming video for those who cant make it.

    Mustang Alley to open Friday at Woodward Dream Cruise.

    LINK
    to article from Autoweek.

    From the article:

    Ford is getting into the spirit of the event by bringing its full lineup of 2014 Ford Mustang and SVT cars to Mustang Alley. Not only will every current version of the Mustang be there, including the 662-hp Ford Shelby GT500, but the 2014 Ford F-150 Tremor sport truck is also tagging along. Oh, and about 800 classic and modern Ford Mustangs will be there, as well.

    Got there Fri around 630p.
    Car ran fine creeping laying back in traffic at 6mph, otherwise 2000 rpm/3rd when clear.
    Got a great parking spot. 1st car on side street facing the cruise.
    In 3 hours seen:
    3 Rebel Machines, 3 different factory paint schemes.
    1 SVO Mustang, black.
    Dodge Lil Red Express
    1st Camaro ever built in a glass lighted display.
    Billboard featuring 2017 Mustang

    Many Many others once sitting near the curb on a chair.
    Good spot just before a traffic light for photo ops.

    Most all the good real classics were out all day until 9p.
    Then the millennials took over the night cruise with the newer cars and trucks.

    No pics. Last minute at home, loaded the larger but nfg SD card by mistake into the camera.
    Fixed that problem for Sat cruise.

    Default Major? changes to 2017 WDC

    Cruised Woodward Ave friday nite 5/27/17. Great cruising weather.
    9 mile north to 15 mile stretch.
    Was a 'drag', using the term to mean 'no good'.

    The 'epicenter' of the Woodward Dream Cruise, 13 mile/Woodward shopping center parking lot is gone.

    Observed fenced construction of a already huge hospital's extension.
    Cruise wize, this area goes from a very live to dead zone.
    Our obscene insurance premiums at work to save lives, but may have damaged or will slowly kill a once huge cruise.

    This will move a major traditional gathering spot and the large Mopar display somewhere else this year.
    Most cruise visitors will not find this out until August, get bummed out, and move on.
    Sadly, no advertising hype will change this situation this year if ever.
