I live a block away. I am new to MI so this has been a fun few days trying to negotiate the traffic. This is a great community event. Everyone should make an attempt to try this once in their life.

The article brought back memories of the 1950s when I used to cruise the drive-ins on Woodward Ave. with my buddies in my ‘49 Ford trolling for girls and drag races.

I can’t imagine ever being nostalgic for much of the pop culture here these past 5, 10 or even 25 years. I’d have to lower my expectations significantly. Meanwhile, I’ll be living in the past, thank you very much.
