DREAM CRUISERS PREPARE TO CONVERGE ON WOODWARD . . . More than 40,000 cruisers are planning to participate in the annual Woodward Dream Cruise this Saturday, Aug. 20 – and more than one million classic car lovers are expected to populate the 16-mile corridor along Woodward, from the Michigan Sate Fair Grounds in Detroit to downtown Pontiac. To help celebrate the cruise, GM will display more than 120 cars and trucks in two separate venues, both open to the public. This is GM’s 10th consecutive year of having a significant presence at the Woodward Dream Cruise – a presence that has brought more than 1,200 GM concept, heritage and production vehicles to enthusiasts and the general public. GM’s two displays at this year’s event help create a “car show within a cruise,” offering people a chance to see the classics in a setting that also presents the newest of the new. XM Satellite Radio will be broadcasting from both locations throughout the day. Following is an overview:

AT ATHENS . . . At the Athens Coney Island on the west side of Woodward, south of Fourteen Mile Road, GM is presenting a salute to open-air motoring from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Some of the new convertibles featured will include the 2006 Pontiac Solstice, 2006 Pontiac G6 convertible, 2006 Cadillac XLR-V and the 2006 Saturn Sky. Some of the classics featured include a 1918 Chevrolet OHV V8, 1931 Cadillac V16 Phaeton, 1953 Corvette, 1953 Buick Skylark, 1959 Cadillac Eldorado and a couple of Indy Pace Cars. In keeping with the convertible theme, the U.S. Postal Service will be issuing a commemorative 1953 Chevrolet Corvette stamp, which will be on sale at Athens during the day, with a special Corvette same-day cancellation. The stamp, part of the America on the Move: 50s Sporty Cars collection, will go on sale nationwide Aug. 21.

AT THE TRIANGLE . . . The "SS is Back" at the Triangle in Birmingham (where New Woodward and Old Woodward meet). Chevrolet will have a major presence at the site, focusing on the triumphant return of the mighty Chevrolet SS nameplate. There will be several vehicle displays and tours on hand, including a mix of classic and new cars, the American Revolution Tour, the Chevy Racing Tour, the All Access Music Tour, an "HHR row,” a GM Performance Division display and an exhibit commemorating the 50-year anniversary of the small-block engine. There will also be live musical entertainment at the site from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
