America's biggest, most significant auto show dominates the motor city for the dawn of the new year, drawing journalists and executives from around the globe. True to Detroit fashion, the show kicked off with large crowds, history-making unveils, and snow flurries.
Chrysler continued the honor of hosting the first conference of the show, bringing out several noteworthy concepts whose diversity ranged from an odd three-seater, to Hummer-threatening Jeep Rescue and even a Ford GT-challenging supercar. General Motors and Ford followed immediately after, each rolling out several production and concept vehicles, with bonus unveils promised for special evening engagements. In rapid-fire delivery, the other manufacturers each rolled out the machines of their imminent and distant futures.
