Detroit – Hundreds of Corvette owners livin’ the dream

Hundreds of Corvette owns gathered at the Radisson Hotel in Bloomfield Hills on Wednesday to show their love of America’s premier muscle car and to also help feed the hungry.

For at least the fourth straight year, Corvettes on Woodward has brought in Vette lovers from all over the state, U.S. and the world. And in turn, they brought food donations which will be turned over to various food banks in Metro Detroit.

They took off down Woodward for some classic cruising Wednesday evening in a parade of hot reds, yellows and blacks.

Among the international travelers I met at the show this year are Swedes Sven Erik and his buddy, Kenneth Rooslund, from Falun, Sweden.

This is the second trip to the event for Erik and five for Rooslund.
“Vettes are very popular in Sweden,” said Rooslund, 52. “They’re the American muscle dream car.”

Kenneth Rooslund, left, and his buddy, Sven Erik, shipped Erik’s silver 1968 Corvette to the states so they could attend the Corvettes on Woodward car show in style. They’ll also be cruising Woodward for the Dream Cruise.
