CAR SHOW &
CAR PARADE @
CITY CENTER PLAZA
25005 VAN DYKE AVE., CENTER LINE, MI 48015
Van Dyke will come to live with food, live music and of course, cars of all shapes and sizes! Gearheads can set up their chairs and talk shop while other attendees can enjoy the visual splendor of the car show. Add a parade and some prize money and you've got a banner summer day for Warren and Center Line. And it's all to benefit the community. Between the the registration fees and our sponsor contributions, we are the rare cruise that raises thousands for local nonprofits and groups.
CAR SHOW REGISTRATION
INCLUDES OFFICIAL T-SHIRT
Our check-in table will be set up in a prominent location at headquarters for ease of access. All online registrants will be assigned a parking spot upon arrival and must check-in at the desk after parking to receive their number tag for the judges and their car plaque.
CAR PARADE ON ROUTE ALONG VAN DYKE
Starting at 11:30am, our staff will begin lining up all cruise participants within City Center Plaza for the commencement of the car parade at noon. The Grand Marshall and police vehicles will lead the parade northbound on Van Dyke with the official turnaround at 14 Mile Road. After the turnaround, cruises can remain on the route for as long as they'd like before returning to their parking spot at headquarters.
Cash prizes and certificates will be awarded in both Stock and Modified categories and one overall Best in Show. The judges will make their way through all entries at the close of registration (12:00pm) and use the same rubric. Scoring is a point-based system in five areas: body, engine, interior, paint and wheels/tires.

Three placements and prizes will be awarded to cars in both Stock and Modified entrance pools.
FIRST PLACE: $300
SECOND PLACE: $200
THIRD PLACE: $100
OVERALL BEST IN SHOW (ONLY ONE): $1,000
FOOD AND ENTERTAINMENT
Cruisin' 53 is an event organized by the Warren Community Foundation. The Warren Community Foundation (WCF) was formed for the coordination, marketing, and implementation of various community events designed to promote the welfare of the City of Warren, Michigan, and to donate the proceeds to charitable and educational organizations doing good works. WCF believes the best way to bring people together is to get them out of the house and talking to one another. The foundation is comprised of veteran businessmen and philanthropists with decades of experience and relationships.
The Warren Community Foundation is a nonprofit under the umbrella of the Warren Center Line Chamber of Commerce (WCLCC). That chamber is one of two area specific subchambers of the Southeast Michigan Chamber of Commerce (SMCC).
