Living the 'Dream'


Dream Cruise enthusiasts were in their glory last weekend all along Woodward Avenue, stretching from Pontiac to Ferndale. Attorney Joe Papelian, a past president of the Oakland County Bar Foundation, hosted a
festive party in Pleasant Ridge on the border of Ferndale, attracting scores of car lovers, including youngsters (l-r) Matias Michalski, Dennis (D.J.) Simpson, Nico Michalski, and ­Christopher Simpson. A longtime car aficionado, Papelian had three of his classic cars on display at the party, including a 1967 Corvette Stingray, a 1970 AMX, and a 1974 ­Plymouth Barracuda. The AMX, sporting a distinctive golden lime color, was among the entrants at the 2019 Autorama in Detroit last winter.
