This week the North American International Auto Show opened to the public at the Cobo Center in Detroit.
Last Monday it opened to the media with about 50 unveilings of new cars and concept or prototype vehicles.
If you aren't going to make the trip down to the Motor City, here are some of my highlights.
The Show opens to media at the Cobo Center Monday and Tuesday, but some auto manufacturers like to get the jump on the show Sunday night off-site. Mercedes-Benz used the renovated and restored Westin Book Cadillac to launch their new CLA-Class in Detroit.

If you live in Toronto, you know there is only one thing more inescapable than taxes and DVP slowdowns: news reports of the Toronto Maple Leaf.
As everyone knows, with the new agreement in place, the Leafs began their training camp on Sunday. In typical fashion, a media cast of dozens went out to the MasterCard Centre for Hockey Excellence (great name) in Etobicoke only to find the 9am medicals and physicals had changed into a 2pm skate. At least there were a couple of press conferences in the middle somewhere to keep the media types out of trouble.
With all the hype and anticipation, frankly it felt like business as usual from everybody.
The day before the first practice, Brian Burke addressed the media with his take on his firing. I'll miss his fire and passion. I spent a night with him and Dave Nonis in an Irish pub in Vancouver last year and I must say he is an entertaining guy to be watching an NHL game in a pub with-it helped that he used his MLSE credit card to pick up the tab.
