Metro Detroit will take a leisurely drive to the 1950s Saturday with a pit stop here and there for nostalgia and worship.

That’s right, it’s the return of the rolling bazaar of car culture known as the Woodward Dream Cruise.

A procession of 40,000 classic cars will meander along Woodward Avenue as they pay noisy tribute to the birthplace of the American automobile.

All those vehicles in their twin-turbo, gold-rimmed, chrome-plated, four-on-the-floor glory comprise the largest one-day auto event in the world.

These roosters of the roadway will be oohed and aahed at all day long along a 16-mile ribbon of asphalt from Ferndale to Pontiac.

“I love it, all of it,” said Vinnie Esposito of Rochester. “I love cars. so this is heaven.”
