Every time I visit a new city, I inevitably begin comparing it to other cities I’ve been to. Well this city has better shopping, that one is closer to the beach, the food in that one city is the best I’ve ever had and so on.
However, there is one thing that no other city I’ve ever visited knows how to do better than Detroit and that’s cars and there really is no better way to experience that than the North American International Auto Show.
Unfortunately, Sunday was the last day of the event but lucky for you I brought my camera with me. Come along, I’ll give you the tour.
All the big names in the automotive industry are there and they pull out all the stops.
Each company puts on display their latest and greatest and spare no expense to attract your attention – loud music, videos playing on loops, flashing lights, beautiful models posing with the cars. You name it, it’ll be there.
There are displays for every aspect that goes into making a car from choosing the interior, airbag detonation displays, models of motors and little signs telling you exactly what you’re looking at.
If you’re not interested in cars, or just need a break, there’s a place for you too.
My favorite display, as always, was Jeep. Jeep sold me during my first Auto Show years ago. Their display pulled me in and I’ve never looked back. To me, the brand means travel and adventure which is really all I want in life.
Plus, if we’re being honest, I really just want to be Lorelai Gilmore drinking a large coffee while driving around in my Jeep Wrangler.
However, I wouldn’t say no to this gorgeous Indian Scout.
After a while, as the crowd gets larger and you’ve looked at what feels like your millionth car, things start to look a little like this.
You can leave and go home to crawl into bed and dream about that beautiful, shiny Porsche or you can go out for dinner and drinks. If you choose the second option, I think we could be friends.
I’ll save dinner for another post but here’s a peek to tide you over until then.
