FIRST THE DISCLAIMER: Ford Motor Company paid for my travel and accommodations at a three-day NAIAS Digital Summit. I was not compensated in any other manner for my time. My opinions posted here are my own.
NOW onto the show …
I was lucky enough to be invited to the media preview for the “Detroit Auto Show” (also know as the North American International Auto Show“). It’s the event where the auto makers unveil their newest model, the innovations and surprises for the year. It’s the car equivalent of the CANNES film festival or SXSW.
Walking around the showroom, attending the (few) news events and unveilings, interacting with others as they also took everything in … it was surreal and fabulous. I have many many photos of cars I liked, looked at, lusted after or just plain didn’t recognize.
But first, let me give a shout out to my host city: Detroit. I was born in Detroit. And the 18 degree weather (with sleet and snow) while I was there reminded me of why I now live in Houston. Brrrr. And I came back with a head cold.
Once I got past the absurd weather, I can say that the city is charming (because, hey, I was born there). And the people there have this attitude of “we will survive” that’s hard to resist.
And now onto the photos.
