    Tesla Test Drive in Detroit and Woodward Dream Cruise - Aug 16, 17 & 18

    Dear TMC Members,

    Michigan Tesla Owners will participate in 2013 Woodward Dream Cruise. Woodward Dream Cruise is an annual event and draws close to 1.5 million visitors every year. It prides itself as the world's largest one-day automotive event and draws 40000 classic cars from around the world. It has however turned into a more inclusive automotive event lately with automakers displaying their latest products. 15 mile stretch of Woodward Avenue is transformed into an open air auto show, with plenty of festivities for an auto enthusiast.

    One of our members have participated in the cruise regularly for last 3 years with his Roadster, this year will be the first year though when Model S will participate. Michigan Tesla Owners will showcase their vehicles in the parking lot on the cruise route. There will be space for 40-50 vehicles in the parking lot. The event is open to all TMC members and we would love to have your company. Please let us know if you are visiting the cruise, Michigan Tesla Owners will host you. If you are visiting from nearby state then there will be a HPWC and 50 amp charging in the parking lot. If you know that your friends or relatives are visiting/participating in the cruise, then please pass our information.

    This will be a fantastic opportunity for Tesla Owners to interact with the general public and we are hoping to spread awareness about Tesla on a much bigger scale. Please see the details as below. If you plan to attend please drop in a message below.

    Woodward Dream Cruise - Friday Meet

    Michigan Tesla Owners met at the Cruise location on Friday evening to plan things for the main event on Saturday. It was nice to have few cars together, all with various options. Looking forward to the main event tomorrow. We will have a bigger turnout for tomorrow. There were also many visitors and a lot of stares on Woodward avenue, so the Tesla magic is already underway in MoTown. Thanks to Dan Scherer, michiganmodels, Sandy Szirtes, Elliot Szirtes, vbsdan, AJ Ker, CGH1105, benfrank3 for attending.

    Woodward Dream Cruise - Saturday Event

    Michigan Tesla Owners met at Woodward Dream Cruise. It was a perfect day, with no rain. The event was a success with more than 25 owners showing up. We will be growing our group as well. Owners interacted with visitors. Tesla cruising on the Woodward generated a lot of interest and drew steady crowd to the show. Company was present at the event as well to answer questions of prospective buyers. We generated few future reservations as well. Owners interacted with each other and shared their delivery and ownership experiences, over refreshments. There was a good mix of Model S with a Roadster, with various options.

    Tesla Drive event at Westin Southfield is in full swing, and had packed schedule. There were 2 P85 loaners there. The drive event will continue on August 17 as well.

    I left early. Please upload any more photos of the event. Thank you all for coming. Thank you michiganmodels for hosting us.
