    Hi All:

    Does anyone want to go to the Detroit Auto Show? I will be leaving Sunday, January 8th from Chicago, staying overnight somewhere in the Detroit area and attending the main event on Monday January 9th.

    James and I have been covering this show for the past few years and another one or two are surely welcome. I am not sure if I will have a 17 Prius Two, a 17 AWD RAV4 Hybrid, a 17 Mazda3 with a stick or something else but that is transportation between Chicago and Detroit.

    Hi James:

    I will pick you up!

    We have invitations to Slows BBQ with Hyundai already too. :)

    Anyone else?

  5. They weren't joking. I heard on the news Fiat, Chrysler, Ram weren't going to be at the show this year. Not listed on the schedule.

    Hi James:

    Not being on the Press Conference Schedule does not mean they will not be there. More than likely they just did not have anything new to spend the $s for a full blown Press Conference on.

    I sent a note to Nick asking for clarification.

  7. That is probably it. I see they are on the floor plan.

    Darn, I would have loved to come, but I will be in Jamaica about that time. Have a good time and make some good videos for the rest of us.

    Hi Jud:

    I bet you will enjoy yourself a wee bit better than James and I. :)

    James, Nick Cappa replied early this morning and said they will not be having a Press Conference but will be there.

    Hi All:

    #2017NAIAS - Audi introduced new A5 models. This is a favorite however.
