2014 NAIAS – Morning Preview

Good Morning from Michigan! I awoke at 4 am to make the trek to Detroit to be among the first of an estimated 5,000+ reporters covering the North American International Auto Show. It is a balmy 37 degrees out and the area I am in is experiencing the worst winter in recent memory. Slick roads and lots of snowy driving are on tap for the morning.

Follow along on Facebook today as I attend several press conferences. My schedule is:

8:10 – Ford
8:50 – Toyota
9:25 – Chrysler Group
10:00 – Chevrolet
2:40 – Honda
3:50 – Nissan

Tomorrow, I’m getting up early to see the Lexus press conference and their new performance coupe.

Stay Warm!

Tim
