Cars, Cars, Cars. There were thousands of vehicles of every description on the street for the 2013 Dream Cruise.
Sunny skies, a gentle breeze, and temperatures in the 70s made this one of the more comfortable Dream Cruises in recent memory. Out on the boulevard on this pleasant day, we encountered a number of familiar Woodward cruisers, and many new ones as well:
+ A black ’59 Chevy pickup from Ontario that successfully combined elements of old school custom and modern street machine. Nice.
+ A concours-worthy 1938 Chrysler Royal Touring Sedan owned by George Hoelaars of Royal Oak, Michigan. From the wreckage of the Airflow arose some elegant Chrysler designs.
+ A 1959 Buick hardtop in classy gray and silver two-tone built by Barry Penfound of Ohio, featured in Hot Rod Magazine back in around 2002, and called the LoSabre.
+ A Volkswagen Beetle with bodywork recreated in ornamental wrought iron. This is a recurring theme in custom VWs over the years, one we wish we knew more about.
+ An immaculate white 1955 Buick Century Hardtop sporting four portholes per fender, wide whitewalls, and a 322 CID Nailhead V8. The Century was Buick’s hot rod for ’55.
