BERKLEY, Mich. (AP) -- A big day has dawned in Michigan for classic car enthusiasts in the state that put America on wheels.

The Woodward Dream Cruise officially kicks off Saturday. But the rides -- and the legions of folks who love them -- have been out for days already along the Detroit-area thoroughfare.

It's the 19th year for the free event, which is hosted by numerous Oakland County communities along the route.

Organizers say the cruise is expected to draw tens of thousands of classic and vintage cars. It's promoted as the world's largest one-day automotive event, drawing people and vehicles from as far away as Asia and Australia.

Meanwhile, Flint's Back to the Bricks Cruise Weekend continues. Saturday events include the unveiling of a statue of General Motors founder William "Billy" Durant.
