“They need to end this thing for once and for all…maybe do it every 3 years or something, but it is out of control. The media is avoiding telling the real story of all the fights, drunkeness, a million people spending not dollar ONE on any of the business’s along the route…..it’s just not helping anything but a few bars….is that the message we want for Detroit? Yay! Old cars and mess of drunks!! Come on down!”

“The Nightmare Cruise is over!”
Unlike Daddio900, PartingOut.com has nothing but accolades for the people who put on the Dream Cruise, the businesses of Detroit, and the friendly people who both participated in the event and those that were just spectators.
Four PartingOut.com team members from Texas attended the Woodward Ave Dream Cruise this year. We loved the Cruise, your people and the fine Detroit and Woodward Ave businesses we spent several thousand dollars with. We plan on coming back. America is a great place and we need to have more events like this that show pure Americana on display. My hats off to the legislators who made August 2012 as Automotive Heritage Month in the state of Michigan, fine work gentlemen. Detroit you’re an automotive city and we sure did enjoy celebrating that with you.
Here are the impressive, friendly, and reliable businesses PartingOut.com partnered with while sponsoring the 18th Annual Woodward Ave Dream Cruise.
- Marty Pawlusiak and Bob Johnson thank you for the help leading up to the Cruise and securing our display booth at Memorial park.
- Matt Howard at Detroit Print Shop went above and beyond in getting all our cards, stickers and other promotional items to us on time. In fact one item, that I asked to be done a bit different, Matt personally brought to me at 9pm Thursday night in the parking lot on 13 mile and Woodward so I would have them Friday morning. There good people. I highly recommend them for any printing needs.
- Allen and Ken at Fast Signs Birmingham took care of our door magnets and made some banners on a last minute rush order deal with a smile, and I do mean last minute, “just make it happen” type deal and they didn’t jack up the price. More good people with a business on Woodward Ave.
- Joe Polito owner of the Woodward Warehouse made us feel very welcome and helped us out with some event equipment storage. Joe has a cool place and you should check it out.
- As we traveled on down to Pontiac I meet Chuck Johnson who lets us put up three banners on his property along Woodward Ave. Chuck thank you as we did not have anything worked out on that end to display PartingOut.com, but you took care of us.
- I went over and meet several of the people at the Detroit Renegades Motorcycle Group, since we have just added motorcycles as a category to PartingOut.com, and here too, like all the others before, we were made welcome.
So in closing, I, nor my two daughters, or their friend, who came to represent PartingOut.com, witnessed any fights, drunkenness or other happening that would keep us from coming back again to the Woodward Ave Dream Cruise.
Michigan You did Yourself Proud.
