For the past six years, my daily job role has included cars. Although I don’t love cars like I do shoes, I appreciate lines of a beautifully designed automobile. I don’t get into the technical stuff, as gas mileage and interior comfort are my hot buttons. Didn’t even test drive anything that didn’t get 40 mpg when I bought my last car. So to attend the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January, my excitement can be described as luke warm.

Now that I have arrived, two words come to mind: Circus. Testosterone.

Once I got beyond those two themes, I did enjoy analyzing the format of the booths, the vast size (many were five times the size of a dealership showroom), and the ability to check out so many dream cars within such a confined space. And it was fun to take a few photos of the madness.

And outside of the show, the January Detroit weather was amazing. It was nice enough for walks through Greektown (and discovery of the Astoria bakery) and to venture to a few evening events…including Maroon 5 (which made the double digit girl want to hitch a ride in my suitcase).

  1. Dang girl. Wish I would have known you were going! What do you do for work?
    Anyhoo…did you venture and see any parts of the ‘Forgotten Detroit”? Eery and beautiful at the same time…and Maroon 5?!! Awesome! (& Jealous).
