Is there anywhere you'd rather be in mid-January than the vacation capital of North America - Detroit?
See the fires in the empty warehouses!
Witness the drive-by shootings!
Watch the few moneyed residents fleeing south (yep...) across the border to the Windsor Casino, not to mention the Windsor Ballet!
Still, the Detroit Show is the one can't-miss of the auto show season.
Despite all its problems, this is still Motor City.
What am I looking forward to?
Among other things - Bryan Adams.
I am the only Canadian car scribe granted a one-on-one with the erstwhile Canadian rocker, who has become something of a spokes-singer for Audi, and who is now bigger in Europe than in his homeland. I'm thinking I'll wear my white tee and jeans, and maybe we can exchange a few guitar riffs.
Oh yeah, there will be some new cars here too.
