The North American International Auto Show is the Motor City’s time to shine. Bright lights, wild ideas, beautiful models (er) cars; it’s Detroit’s time to shine, a bright spot in the midst of normally harsh winter. In recent years technology has become almost as important a design element as the sporty curves and gutsy engines. The recently ended Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas sported a huge number of vehicles and automotive related technology. Now we get to see the flip side of that equation as car makers from all over the world vie for the attention of the masses of new car enthusiasts.
Paul Eisenstein is the editor of The Detroit Bureau, the voice of the automotive world, and our frequent guest at this time of year. Paul will give us an overview of the North American International Auto Show which opens to the public January 16 through the 24th. Our focus will be on the increased importance of technology in the design and sales of the beauties on display at the Motor City’s biggest show.
