The public part of the auto show is Saturday, January 19 through Sunday, January 27, 2008 in Detroit. :cool:

We plan to go on the first weekend. Is anyone else thinking about going?

We will be going, mid-week though, I take my team at work as a "team building" exercise. We get lunch at Jacoby's, oldest bar in Detroit and excellent German food and beer selection, then hop on the people mover at Greektown and go to the show! Weekends are very busy, but if you are from out of town then you dont have much of a choice.

I'm thinking about going up. I missed the LA show since they pushed the date before my trip.

They will all be there and some of the stuff they have to show is pretty ugly. Anyone remember this Chinese concept car with the odd wheel placement? :confused:

This is a good example of why people should buy American!

Yes, but it probably only costs about $600.00. There might just be a few on the Walmart showroom floors soon. Big tag, Batteries not included.... (So they can get past the safety inspections and say they don't sell running vehicles.

Here is the floor plan (http://www.naias.com/uploadedFiles/Sponsors/Sponsorship_Information/Floor_Plans/_ignore_related_content/08_FloorPlan1-8.pdf)for the auto show this year. Rick and I plan to go next Sunday (unless I don't feel well that day). We're really looking forward to going. Rick wants to see the trucks and I like the concept cars. Other than that, our agenda is wide open. Any special photo requests? I'll have to prioritize what I go to because I run out of energy faster than in the past. With all that walking I know I'll need to be wearing my oxygen and sitting down to take breaks.
