PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) - A creepy car show offered a new treat for car aficionados in the Detroit area.

“Scream Cruise” took place in Pontiac on Sunday, a day after the 21st annual Woodward Dream Cruise celebration of classic car culture.

Glen Konopaskie, executive director of the Pontiac Downtown Business Association, tells The Detroit News that the car show and a motorcycle block party were designed to bring attention to Pontiac’s growing business district as well as custom motorcycles and car clubs.

Konopaskie says the “Thunder in Pontiac Dream Cruise Festival” sought to attract groups that can’t or don’t participate in the traditional Dream Cruise.

Hearse enthusiast Jake Ohse tells MLive.com that the vehicles are “pieces of machinery that were made to work” and “not just a macabre thing to look at.”
