NAIAS

I've lived in the Detroit region for half of my life, but have never been to the North American International Auto Show before. It's been something I've regretted for years, but I can now say that's no longer the case!

There were lots of cars, obviously, but I think the most interesting was comparing values across brands. And sitting in the seats of really expensive cars that I will never, ever be able to afford. It's kinda like having a flyby view of a star, you walking into the restroom as they're walking out. I can now say I've once sat in a $100K+ car. And snuck my hand out to caress the chassis of a car behind a display. What can I say, I've been looking at Audi R8 Spyders for years ^_^




I have a car that works and no plans to by a new one, but it's just fun to look. I mean, who can ignore big, shiny things?

  1. Years ago I worked for an insurance company and got to go to the Earls Court Motor Show in London. Like you, I had loads of fun sitting in the cars I would never be able to afford (I can't even drive). I felt like a little kid :-)

  2. I've never been an auto show either, but it looks like something right up my hubby's alley :)

  3. I've never been inspired by cars. I have a Ford Fiesta (enough said!) and am very happy with it. Mind you I did once sit in a sports car in a car showroom and something inside me stirred... then I looked at the price tag and I went right off it!
