Porsche NAIAS Display: Is That Cinnamon I Smell?

Porsche NAIAS Display: Is That Cinnamon I Smell?

Ready to eat the next unsuspecting floor model we saw, Marci and I agreed that Porsche should probably be our last stop before lunch because, and don’t quote me on this, I don’t think resorting to cannibalism on your first business trip is the best way to represent your company. It didn’t help, however, that […]

Volkswagen NAIAS Display: Golf R, Dune, and a Secret Dungeon?

Volkswagen NAIAS Display: Golf R, Dune, and a Secret Dungeon?

After having spent too much time in Kialand with the babbling photographer, Marci and I felt rushed. Plus it was nearly three o’clock and our stomachs were grumbling for overpriced Cobo food, so we didn’t spend as much time looking at the people’s cars as we would have liked. There was even a secret dungeon display (okay, […]

BMW NAIAS Display: Electrifying and Sleek

MINI NAIAS display existed too...

There were honestly so many of them that for a while it seemed like they outnumbered all the gearheads there checking out the goodies from […]

Audi NAIAS Display: Our First Stop

Audi NAIAS Display: Our First Stop

When we first stepped inside NAIAS, I felt like I was getting off the subway for the first time in Manhattan. I’m sure Lewis and Clark felt similarly on their trip to the Pacific, although I am not quite certain how they made it sans smartphone. There was so much going on: cars and flashing […]

My First Experience at NAIAS

My First Experience at NAIAS

I was sitting at my desk finishing up a history page for the Ford Fusion when my boss nonchalantly asked me if I felt like road tripping it to Detroit this week for NAIAS. If it hadn’t been over instant messenger, I might have tackled her with a bear hug. (Did she seriously think “No” […]

Acura Makes Jerry Seinfeld’s ‘Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee’ Possible

Comedians have an uncanny ability to makes us laugh. It is their job after all, but the greats don’t need to be on-stage with a well-rehearsed routine to do so. The really good comedians can turn the most everyday task, such as getting coffee, into gut-busting laughter, and that is exactly what Jerry Seinfeld’s “Comedians […]
