General Motors (NYSE: GM) announced today that it will continue its series of "GM Experience Live" Internet events on August 19 when it webcasts the Woodward Dream Cruise, a Detroit-area classic and muscle car event that draws more than one million people. This is the third consumer webcast GM has done this year. The last was the "24 Hours of Le Mans" in June from Le Mans, France.
Consumers can log onto the Woodward Dream Cruise webcast at . Live images from multiple webcams will provide a full perspective of the event. Two cameras will be focused on Woodward Avenue capturing the estimated 30,000 classic 1950s and 1960s automobiles that will cruise a 16 mile route. Another camera will provide live shots of event attractions, including GM's 100-vehicle specialty and classic vehicle display.

"The Woodward Dream Cruise has become a Detroit tradition. Through the webcast we're able to share the event with an audience around the world that has a passion for classic automobiles and the cruising era," said Mark Hogan, president of e-GM. "GM's live Internet events bring interesting activities to people who might not get a chance to experience them otherwise."

Other elements of the webcast will include a voting booth, where consumers can choose their all-time favorite GM classic vehicles. The results will be updated on the website instantaneously as individuals vote. A photogallery will contain images of popular GM vehicles from the 1950s to the 1970s. A "Designer Insights" section will contain videotaped comments from GM vehicle designers on what tomorrow's classics might look like.

Beyond the Dream Cruise content, the site will also provide links to GM's many websites, including its vehicle divisions, subsidiaries and GM BuyPower, an online automotive buying service. SOURCE General Motors Corporation
