Hot-rod heaven.

High-performance passion.

Cool classics.

Automotive paradise.

Motor City Merriment.

Or simply, Woodward Dream Cruise.

What started as a simple fund-raiser for a soccer field in Ferndale, Mich., has supe'd up to be an iconic event that causes more than a million people to flock to Woodward Avenue to drive their own vehicles in the cruise or simply watch the great cars travel back and forth from Detroit and Pontiac.

As in years past, Chrysler Group will be well represented -- with plenty of classic and new cars and trucks for you to check out.

On Friday, be sure to tune into WWJ 950 AM in Detroit around 8:15 a.m. as Chrysler Group's Head of SRT and Motorsports Design Mark Trostle joins counterparts from Ford and GM on Motor City Muscle, a panel to talk about muscle cars. John McElroy and Jeff Gilbert are hosts for the discussion. If you want to watch/listen to it live, you can start showing up by around 7:15 a.m.

Below is a rundown of what we'll have during the 2011 Woodward Dream Cruise, Saturday, Aug. 20, 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. (when the WDC ends).

Same location as in years past at the corner of Woodward and 13 Mile
19 production vehicles on display, including the full SRT line, Fiat 500 Cabrio, Sport and a vintage Fiat, 2 Jeep Wranglers, Dodge Charger Pursuit (police car), Charger pace car and Ram Power Wagon
23 historical vehicles, including a '67 Plymouth Fury, ’69 Plymouth Road Runner, ’67 “Silver Bullet,” ’71 ‘Cuda, ’33 Chrysler and a ’70 Hemi ‘Cuda
Monster Truck Raminator
NASCAR show car
8 Mopar vehicles, including the 200 Super S, Charger Mopar 11, Challenger Mopar 10, Ram Runner and the Mopar Drag Pak
Mopar Image Center and mobile trailer on site
Motorsports trailer on site
Fiat display
A band performing 6-8 p.m.

Now, you know, out of all the automakers, no one can touch Chrysler Group design. That product passion is not limited to the 40+ hour work week -- it starts in the home garage for many of us. To prove that, we'll also have seven employee muscle cars on display for you to check out.

So if you're any where near the Chrysler Group display, please stop by, say hello and take some photos and video. We'll be on the look out for them -- and you!

If you can't make it out, follow the OfficialWDC on Twitter and via the #Woodward and #DreamCruise hashtags. On Facebook, check out the Official Page of the Woodward Dream Cruise.
