North American Car Show-2012

Artistically Painted Smart Car
An annual tradition in our family has been to atttend the North American Car Show held at Cobo Hall in Detroit every January.  My husband, who has engineering in his background, and son are enthusiastic car buffs. This year our son started working for Ford! We enjoyed comparing all the new cars with him. However, my favorite part of the car show is our excursion to Greektown for lunch!

The most artistic element in the show is pictured above:  a Smart Car that was painted by Billy the Artist.

Beautiful Protoype

Of course, paint your car and you will always find it in the parking lot! :-) Looks like it was a fun event.

Hi Teresa,
It is fun, but was so much more flashy in the 1990s! Back when the economy was strong, they had entertainment like Cirque du Soleil doing acrobatics over the cars, or singers and glamorous models all over the place. It is still impressive, but more subdued. The models went from slinky evening gowns, to tailored suits. More politically correct, less "Vegas".
