BERKLEY (CBSDETROIT) – The Woodward Dream Cruise is officially over, but many are still cruising the strip and enjoying the freedom of less cars on the road.

The Donut Cutter on Woodward in Berkley is a popular hangout post-cruise.

WWJ’s Terri Lee meet up with Doug Smith and his four-year-old twins, Blake and Amber.

“We don’t actually cruise in the event itself … but we come out for the pre-events Thursday, Friday and come out and look at the car show on Saturday and then Sunday morning I’ll typically bring them out and take them for a cruise,” said Smith.

Smith’s vehicle of choice to post-cruise in? A 1968 Acapulco Blue Mustang convertible.

People came from far and wide for this year’s Woodward Avenue Dream Cruise. So what was their impression?

Radell Radford checked out the cruise with his wife driving all the way down from New Hampshire:

“(I) used to live in Michigan 30 years ago – first time at the cruise. It’s great, the cars go by you – you don’t even have to walk! They all go by,” he said.”It’s great, it’s the best thing I’ve been to in years.”

Radford was especially impressed with how friendly everyone was during the cruise.

Ten-year-old Lucus of Birmingham enjoyed the cruise, even scoping out his own ‘dream’ car, one he plans to buy in about six years, when he’s old enough to drive.

“I like the ’73 Mustang,” he told WWJ’s Sandra McNeill.
