Lots of cars have been cruising metro Detroit’s Woodward Avenue all week, but on Saturday the Woodward Dream Cruise will turn the fabled Michigan M-1 into a genuine traffic jam of classic iron from all around the world. Erin Marquis and I are going to be there, and you should go, too. So let’s meet beforehand, shall we?


After calling dozens of businesses to find a meetup spot, I landed on one of my favorite salvage yards in all of the land, U-Pull And Save Auto Parts in Pontiac, Michigan. It’s an incredible yard built on the grounds of an old General Motors stamping plant at 240 E Columbia Ave, Pontiac, MI 48340.

My Postal Jeep and I will be there from 9:30 until 10:30, at which point, we’ll all head out to Woodward, and cruise until either A) We get tired of it or B) Our cars break down. Either way.

You said “one of” because US Auto in Sterling Heights is your favorite, right?
