The Wackiest Cars at the 2022 Woodward Dream Cruise

The Wackiest Cars at the 2022 Woodward Dream Cruise Anyone can join the Dream Cruise, making this car show a treasure trove of bizarre oddities, from obscure electric vehicles to homemade mashups. Our very own "SOLD MAN" Bob Quick, Realtor® was apart of this wonderful event! Detroit is a bit more than 106 miles from Chicago, but we loved this replica of the Bluesmobile from the 1980 classic The Blues Brothers. While it's not a 1974 Dodge Monaco like the car in the film, it is based on the related Plymouth Gran Fury, and includes all the right details, from the “P1” on the rear door to a fake Illinois license plate reading “BDR529.” The speaker on the roof may not be as colossal as the one in the movie, but it captures the right spirit, as does the costumes worn by this Bluesmobile’s occupants. 02/23/2022 – The Wackiest Cars at the 2022 Woodward Dream Cruise – Caleb Miller/Car & Driver

CONDO BOOM UNDERWAY IN TOWN OF TECUMSEH

CONDO BOOM UNDERWAY IN TOWN OF TECUMSEH Developers are rushing to keep pace with housing demand across Windsor-Essex, and a drive along Tecumseh’s main drag is a quick indication that a condo boom is underway in the municipality. “In the previous five years, things were a little bit slow in our municipality, but the census is certainly not picking up on all this activity that’s happening right now,” says Tecumseh Mayor Gary McNamara, who says at this very moment, 1,000 condo units are currently under construction in town. On Tecumseh Road alone, roughly 400 units are currently going up, including Valente Development’s Gateway Tower, which will soon boast 99 rental units. In partnership with the Canada Mortgage and Housing Commission, 33 per cent of the units will be considered affordable housing. “It’s kind of a hybrid between a market rent project and an affordable rent project, which I’m very proud to bring to the Town of Tecumseh,” says Peter Valente of Valente Development and Real Estate.

Windsor to review building department after housing summit, but developer skeptical of plan to cut.. Local developer Peter Valente says while the new funding is good, he wants to actually see the talks turn into action.

Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens was one of 29 other mayors from the province's largest municipalities that joined a call with Ontario premier Doug Ford and the Municipal Affairs and Housing Minister Steve Clark to discuss housing affordability in the province.  Dilkens told CBC News that the city will review its planning and building department and make sure there isn't…
