Shh…This is the Silent Dream Cruise.

Shh...It's the Silent Cruise

Shh…It’s the Silent Cruise

Chevy Volters hit Woodward last week to celebrate silence.

“The Woodward Dream Cruise brings out more than one million car lovers to celebrate the automobile. While many of the fans appreciate the rumble and roar of big engines and muscle cars, the Chevrolet Volt aficionados are sometimes looking for something else.”

Says General Motors via its Facebook page.

Though not part of the official cruise, this Silent Cruise is the EV-owners dream.

Forget noise pollution.  That’s a relic of the past.  Silence is the future.

    What city was this in?

    1. Eric Loveday says:

      @ David…Lots of cities line Woodward Avenue. The Woodward Dream Cruise is held on the outskirts of Detroit, Michigan… Just off the top of my head..the cities include Ferndale, Royal Oak, Pontiac, Berkley, Huntington Woods, Bloomfield Hills…maybe a few more…The Silent Cruise is held two days before the big cruise along the same route.

      Hi Dan,

      Shouldn’t you be over at the vintage V8 Forum club ?
      I can see by your posts you are definitely NOT an EV type of person……

      Man even the Labrador was happy!
      Along with the MANY OWNERS and great gas free miles.

      My Volt was happily waving from Australia 8 months – still original tank of petrol and life time 0.5L/Km.

      Happy silent cruse to all the Volt owners – love your work !

      1. Martin T says:

        0.5L per 100 Km just to get that correct LOL!

        Yes Dan is pretty much treading on troll-territory and is also starting to sound like a broken record.
