Happy Days' Stars to Cruise at Art Van


WARREN — Imagine driving Michigan’s most famous street with one of the coolest cruisers ever. Art Van Furniture is offering classic car lovers the chance to cruise Woodward Avenue with Happy Days sitcom stars, Anson Williams, “Potsie,” or Don Most, “Ralph Malph,” on August 17. It’s all part of Art Van’s celebration of the summertime classic which attracts more than a million people annually.

To enter the “Art Van Happy Days Dream Cruisers” contest, classic car owners can post a photo of themselves in their classic car on Art Van Furniture’s Facebook page now through August 15. Two winners will be selected and announced August 16. “Potsie” will be a passenger in one car and “Ralph Malph” in the other, and the Happy Days dream cruisers will ride the route and wave to cruise fans lining Woodward during a 30 minute drive.

“Art Van Furniture is located in the heart of the cruise so we look forward to interacting with classic car fans from around the world,” said Art Van Elslander, founder and chairman of Art Van Furniture. “Bringing in two of television’s most popular actors from Happy Days adds the perfect nostalgic touch, and having them cruise Woodward with contest winners in the front seat of their vintage cars will provide a once in a lifetime thrill.”
