Stan Mott’s Cyclops at the Woodward Dream Cruise—with video!
“The day of the Woodward Dream Cruise is the only day of the year that you can walk from Ferndale to Pontiac across the hoods Chevelles and Camaros and never have your feet touch the ground.”—Dave Lyon
Amid the thousands of idling, overheating muscle cars making their slow, 16-mile progression, one participant stood out of the crowd.
Glen Thomas brought his Cyclops.
The car was a real crowd pleaser.
Glen brought his red souped-up Cyclops RS to the event. It has a go-kart-type suspension, larger tires, 6.5 HP engine with a torque converter. Good for 30–35 MPH!
Glen set up the Cyclops display (consisting of an umbrella and chairs) at the corner of 12-Mile and Woodward. (Ironically that corner is probably about a half mile from a house that I had in Berkley.)
It’s a good thing that Glen didn’t set up a sign that read “Taking Pre-Orders.” That would have stopped the show.
Many Thanks to Glen Thomas
