I understand for making this a big cruise and the publicity from from doing it , but why blow the numbers of cruisers WAY out of proportion , might of been 10,000 cruisers at best. The cruise was designated at 7-1/2 miles , x 2 lanes equals 15 miles of road. 15 miles x 5280 ft per mile = 79200 ft of road divided by 30 ft per car = a maximum of 2,640 cars on the road IF PACKED from end to end, which it wasn't. Now take the same 79200 of roadside footage adn divide by a car taking up 12 foot along side the road = 6600 cars along the sides of the entire road , which they weren't , there were stretches of 1/4 mile where you might of seen 3 car on both sides, granted a few spots were 2 or 3 deep , but be realistic , 10,000 cars/cruisers are a lot closer to the truth .

NOW for the positive truth , EXCELLENT CRUISE, they kept most of the NEW cars out of there , need to work harder on that. traffic kept moving , VERY NICE, cars were of very good quality .
Again NICE Job , just screen the NEW cars better , most of them you can see on the dealer lot , so put them in the family parking lot .
THANK YOU
