Detroit Auto Show
Well. I just got back from the NAIAS (North American International Auto Show) yesterday. I went to Windsor to visit my sister and since I was in the area......
What a disappointment!!! For the 'supposed' best show in North America! Damn. Makes you realize just how lucky we are here in the Toronto GTA. First off. It was essentially all on 1 level! Compared to our multi-level facility + Sky Dome. One huge plus was the amount of prototypes that were there. Since it is in Detroit - home of the Big 3.
Highlight of the night for me was at the BMW section. There was a special BMW lounge that was sectioned off by armed guards (2 ladies-hahaha and a gate). I looked in and saw a few well dressed people sitting on couches having a drink. After inquiring what it was all about. One of the ladies told me that it was ONLY for BMW owners.......Sorry. I asked what you needed to get in. And she told me that you need to have a BMW key......Sorry! That's when I had to say "Oh, you mean like this????" You should have seen the look on her face! I felt that she was a little on the snobby side. So after she told me that I was 'welcome'. I just said 'no thanks' to your complimentary BMW water and coffee!!!! Turned around and said maybe later! I think there were also some snack foods and stuff...I just got to the show and really didn't want to spend my time sitting around.
The new 745i is a work of technology!!!!!
Another thing. TONS and TONS of cops!
P.S. I look young (although I'm 29). Hard to judge a book by it's cover. Lesson 1.
