Warren Brown and Lou Ann Hammond chat about cars on www.washingtonpost.com January 18, 2013

Good Morning Warren and friends

A belated Happy Birthday to Warren. Yesterday was his birthday.

The Detroit auto show is over. Fuel efficiency and design were the name of the game. And trophies.

Congratulations to Cadillac for winning the North American Car of the Year with the Cadillac ATS. And, congratulations to Ram for winning the North American Truck of the year for the Ram 1500.

Eyes on design has become an integral part of the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS). Designers that used to work in the auto field judge the cars that come out at the Detroit auto show. The Cadillac ELR won the production car of the year, and the Nissan Resonance won the concept car of the year.

Warren and I were on the John Batchelor radio show on Monday. You can listen at https://www.drivingthenation.com/?p=7595
