Warren and I are going to be at the auto show TOGETHER Friday, Jan 22 from 12:00-1:00, at the opening of the show at the WANADA booth.
The Washington Auto Show has given us some tickets to give to you! If you can go to the show on January 22, send me an email at lou at drivingthenation.com, and I will get as many of you in as I can.
We gave away ten of them last week; I still have more to give away.
The Detroit Auto Show was good, not as busy as previous years, but a solid show with lots of discussion about mobility, connected car, and what it will take for us to get there. Continental AG has created a website for everyone, including you, that wants to talk about automated driving.
The first evening Buick brought out a beautiful concept, but if they don’t build it, they are crazy. General Motor’s Chairman and CEO, Mary Barra, presented the Buick Avista, and GM’s global designer, Ed Welburn, talked about the car.
A new car company with icons of the industry running it, VLF, brought out their new Force 1. Henrik Fisker and Bob Lutz have teamed up with manufacturer Gilbert Villarreal to create super luxury, high-powered sportscars that many would buy if they had won the lottery. Gorgeous!
