"Last year was a little subdued," as the auto industry fought for its life, said Larry Roberts, a Jupiter, Fla., real estate investor who comes to the Dream Cruise every year. "People seem more enthusiastic and happy this year." While Chrysler, Ford and General Motors mounted displays along the cruise route to promote their newest vehicles, car lovers from around the country brought models ranging from classic 1920s Rolls-Royces to '57 Chevys, Mustangs of all vintages, Jeeps and handmade street rods. "This is the people's car show," Ford vice president of global marketing Jim Farley said as his 2'2-year-old son Jameson bounced on his knee and played with a toy Mustang. "It's a way for me to connect my son Jameson with the cars I build, too. He can name every model of Mustang," Farley said proudly. I CRUISE IS LESSON IN HISTORY. 5A Whore there's no smokes, there could be new danger By ROBIN ERB FREE PRESS MEDICAL WRITER As states make it tougher to light up in public, tobacco manufacturers are rolling out new smokeless tobacco lines some flavored, some spitless, prompting worries from public health officials about potentially unknown risks of these new products and their appeal to underage users. Among the new offerings in Michigan is Sous tiny tea-bag-like pouches of tobacco that don't require spitting. Other products, such as tablets that look like small breath mints or dissolvable strips and sticks made of finely milled tobacco, are being test-marketed elsewhere, and, if profitable, al M ' a 3; ' - l i a S . - -., f ! i in i' 1 I I I i .

The Michigan Department of Community Health has asked tobacco advocates to begin collecting information on who is selling the items. "The more you can make a drug easier and cheaper to get, the more kids will use it," said Jeanne Knopf DeRoche, whose Plymouth-based company receives state funding to do prevention campaigns and help monitor retail outlets in much of Wayne and Monroe counties. "It's not just about cigarettes," said David Howard, spokesman for R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company. "It's about offering adult tobacco consumers options."

ELRICK FREE PRESS STAFF WRITERS Michigan's campaign finance laws are designed to let voters know whose money is trying to influence them. Yet it's virtually impossible to tell where more than $4 million nearly 40 of the money spent on TV ads during the gubernatorial primary races came from. That's because seven groups running what are known as issue ads exploited a loophole in state campaign finance law. The loophole allows groups to hide their donors so long as their ads don't explicitly urge a vote for or against a candidate. Two other groups used the loophole in radio ads, disguising which special interests may be trying to sway votes. With nearly $2 million in TV ads supporting Lansing Mayor Virg Berncro, the Genesee County Democratic Committee was the biggest spender among issue advertisers, according to the Michigan Campaign Finance Network, which tracked TV spending. Bernero trounced Democratic House Speaker Andy Dillon in the Aug. 3 primary. The Free Press could not find records for the group's ad expenditures, though the group's treasurer said the spending came from an account controlled by the county's Democratic Party. The lack of disclosure "robs elections of their integrity," said Rich Robinson of the nonprofit network, which tracks political spending. "How can we say there's integrity to this kind of process when one of the major financiers of the entire election is secret?" Among Republicans, some candidates criticized the ads of issue groups involving people with ties to Attorney General Mike Cox, who finished third.
