No. Because we don't live in Michigan.

We do not live in Michigan either, we are about 4.5 hours away from the show but I might still try to get up to see it. Three of us went in 03' for the day and it was awsome, too much to see in one day. I took lots of pictures and only wish that I could find them.

I won't be at Detroit in person, but will be sure to access the NAIAS online for all the dirt, as I have done for the past few years.

I like the Chicago show best, because McCormick Center has all the overhead cameras that can be accessed by the general public on the second general admission day of the show. One of the camera images was converted into my avatar.

The Plainsman, you can always fly to Detroit. I take the train into NYC for their annual car show at Easter time. Between parking and Manhattan traffic, it's an absolute pain to drive there. I'm sure my fellow downstate New Yorker, thatjerryguy, would agree.

I've gone the last 4-5 years on MLK Day with my son and others. It is very crowded, but a great show to see the new stuff local shows like we get here in Columbus never get.

3.5 hour drive for us!

Here is a nice car we happened to see there in January of this year.....

We go!! My dad and I went two years (a few years ago). It's a 6 hour drive for us. But this year I'm meeting my mom and dad there. I'm flying up from NC (school) to meet them there. I'm so excited... it's just too much fun.

Why spend hundreds of dollars to fly to Detroit to see an auto show? You gotta be kidding me. I can fly to Los Angeles for hundreds of dollars, a more attractive venue too. Not the city of L.A. but everything else out there.

Detroit is not exactly Shangri la. I've been there. I was a graduate student in Ann Arbor 20 years ago. I went to the Detroit Auto Show. There was nothing special there that you can't see in Chicago, L.A., or New York. And unlike those other cities, there is nothing to do in Detroit other than the auto show.

Oh how wrong you are. There's Greek Town, Mexican Town, The Fox and Fischer Theaters, NFL, NHL, and MLB (though not anymore for this season) right downtown. Many of acclaimed restaurants and bars. The Detroit Science center. The Motor City, MGM Grand or Greek Town Casinos. There's Windsor right across the tunnel or bridge with our own Casino Windsor, many bars, beautiful parks and little else . There's a whole lot to do these days actually. Maybe not as fancy or ritzy and LA, Chicago or NY, but it is considered the Super Bowl of Auto Shows, although the venue is far too small anymore.

Oh and don't wander out of the downtown core, you will be killed. You have been warned.

(I wish I could find the picture I've seen on T-shirts. It has a picture of the business end of a hand gun pointed at the reader and the caption reads "Come back to Detroit...we missed you the first time")

Well, that was certainly true 20 years ago (aside from Greektown), but Archer did quite a bit of good for the city. It's still no Chicago, but there is much more to do in Detroit now than there was in the 80's or 90's.

I certainly would, unless the LIRR pulls one of their usual screwups. Than it's a tossup.

But I'll be there at the New York Show this spring. Hopefully Saturn has something interesting on display.
