What’s a gearhead to do? This weekend marks two big automotive events on the American calendar – the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and the Woodward Dream Cruise. You can follow along right here at Autoblog for all the action from Pebble Beach, while Woodward is a trickier proposition. It’s not so much news or new models at Woodward, but the atmosphere. Capturing it via text and photos isn’t the easiest thing to do.
Thankfully, the team at Autoline Detroit will be webcasting live from Woodward between 4:00 and 5:00 PM EST today. Now, you might ask yourself, “Why aren’t they out there tomorrow, you know, during the actual Cruise?” Despite the “official” cruise being on Saturday, the heart of the event is spread out over the week preceeding (this writer would make the argument that the Thursday and Friday night before the cruise are actually far more fun than the day itself).
Autoline also has a slew of guests lined up for the event, including Ralph Gilles, president and CEO of Chrysler’s SRT performance brand. Ian Callum, head of design for Jaguar, will also be on hand. Indeed, the guests are the other reason for the Friday webcast – Callum has already announced that he’ll be cruising Woodward in a new F-Type, and we’ve no doubt that Gilles will be doing the same (although more likely behind the wheel of a Viper). Getting time with them on Saturday just isn’t feasible.
