Woodward Dream Cruise - Thursday, August 19, 2010
2010-08-19
Thursday was a fun-filled day!! We cruised to the Motown Museum/Hitsville USA for an awesome tour. From there, we cruised down Woodward Avenue back to the hotel for some lunch. Later in the afternoon, we cruised to Harold & Sharlean Sullivan's beautiful home and garage. What an unbelievable place and what gracious hosts they were....but then they always have been to the Prowler owners. From there, we stopped briefly on Woodward to purchase some Dream Cruise souvenirs and over to the Walter P. Chrysler Museum for our Pizza dinner and Drive-In Movie Night. It was interrupted briefly by a severe storm that moved into the area. Two tornadoes touched down several miles North of us. We quickly moved the Prowlers to one of Chrysler's underground parking garages, with Bob shuttling everyone back to shelter in the Museum. We had our Pizza dinner in the Museum, toured the Museum and gift store. Rockin' Ronnie arrived to set up the movie screen and we enjoyed watching the movie "The California Kid" sitting in our Prowlers! What a day!!!

  In the evening, the Prowler owners gathered at the Walter P. Chrysler Museum for the Prowler Drive-In Movie Night. An inflatable screen was set up on the lawn in front of the Museum and we parked the cars like at the drive-in. We watched the movie "The California Kid". It was a beautiful night for it and we had a blast!
