2012 North American International Auto Show

Jan 20, 2012

In a windy snow squall, fit for Michigan in the middle of January, we set off for Detroit and the 2012 Detroit North American International Auto Show.

After a snowy 20 minute drive, and 10 dollars to park on the Cobo Center roof top, we were reviewing the latest sights, sounds and innovations that our 2012 Automotive industry has to offer.

Hundreds of thousands show up for this incredible 12 day event, showcasing everything from basic commuter vehicles to exotic sports cars and the concepts of tomorrow.

According to 2011 statistic over 770,000 attended the show last year with 53 New vehicle introductions.

This year is sure to be just as spectacular with 41 new vehicles being introduced and more than 500 vehicles on display.

We never miss it.
