Spring Brings Out The Cruisers To Gather On Woodward Avenue

Birmingham, Mich. - One downside for car enthusiasts living in the northern states is that many of their vehicles are taken out for dry, warm-weather cruising – and understandably so. But when the spring hits, you can expect to find these cars slowly coming out of their winter resting places and back onto the roads so that owners may enjoy driving their prized possessions. In Southeast Michigan, one of the spots that is first to host shows in the spring is Pasteiner's Auto Zone, a small automotive hobby and book store along famed Woodward Avenue. You can typically expect anywhere from 20 to 50 classic or collectible vehicles or more to show up at the store on any decent Saturday morning.Red 1960's Ford Mustang in parking lot

When cruising out to Pasteiner’s for the cars ’n coffee, you can never be certain of what kind of rides will be there. From Ford GT’s to Mustangs, and classic to even some new Ford products such as the pair of 2021 Broncos shown below, the store’s weekly gathering draws in a bit of everything. It’s even been said that Ford CEO Jim Farley is a regular of this locally known cruise-in. If you happen to visit this event on any given Saturday, you may likely run into Ford Retiree and roving car show photographer Bill Cook, who also happens to own two Boss Mustangs. As a frequent visitor to Pasteiner’s, Cook has attended the cruise-in on several weekends in 2021 already, and shares some of the fine machines he’s seen on display there this spring in his photo gallery below:1960s Red Mustang photo from rear three quarterRed and white S550 GT350 MustangWhite and Black 80s mercury foxbodyDark Red 2004 Mustang GTBlue and white S197 GT500 Mustangoverhead photo of Gen 2 Ford GT from rear three quarterShelby GT500 Mustang first generationSupercharged five liter engine with supercharger in early model mustang2018 Ford GT in red parked along curbPair of 2021 Broncos parked at PasteinersPair of S550 GT350's parked next to each otherOrange first generation Ford Bronco rear photoOrange first generation ford bronco with many people standing around itFocus ST Tjin Edition driving away from cameraBlue and white boss 302 mustang S197
