And despite appearances, we couldn't be happier being here at the Woodward Dream Cruise. We're just dumbstruck - veterans and first-timers alike are reeling with sensory overload. Share a bit of that with us below.

Peter Orosz, our very own crazy Euro car boy, and I have spent 12 hours on the road to meet up with our Detroit team, aka Ben Wojdyla, and Ray Wert, our lately home-location-confused boss, to cover the 2009 Woodward Dream Cruise. Here's some of Peter's shots from moments ago. Enjoy.

Before you say Darth Vader, your car is ready, let me tell you that barely an hour ago, we came across in a parking garage one of the 2000 Saab Turbo X's built. Wert claims almost all of the rest of them are used here as daily drivers as well.
