NAIAS '06: Who's Going?

60 posts in this topic

I am. Should prove to be exciting, especially for all the RWD fans. I'm guessing there will be a few GREAT ones from GM (Blue Devil; speculation of a Camaro or GTO), Dodge will probably have the Challenger, DCX always has some surprises, maybe that Hyundai RWD car they were talking about, maybe the next Supra or equivilent. I'm sure that GT-R/Skyline will be there. Who knows. I can't wait. Who's with me?

I'm hoping for a small Cadillac, a baby XLR, or maybe even a A&S II CTS...

I want to... but I wanted to go to a GA meet too and that didn't happen. All because my dad didn't think my GA would make it. I know it would have. I've been driving the thing almost everyday for the past few months now, I ought to know what it can and cannot do. Whatever. I'd need a place to stay, though. Any ideas? Also, approximately how much would it cost?

I plan to attend this year ... but, quite a few things fell through for me this year, too ... so, we'll see as the dates get closer. We have some time yet ;).

A lack of $$$$ prevents me this year unfortunately. But I will be at the Tampa Auto Show this November, faithfully covering everything that we've seen already.

Do they usually have new stuff at Tampa, Fly? If so, that should be one of the first shows to have the Escalade, as it debuts in early Nov. I probably won't be going because I'll probably have a lot of basketball stuff to do, but I'll be able to go to the Chicago show, which should have even more new debuts.

Whereabouts in IL are you (if you don't mind saying...that is)? Maybe you and I can plan to go the same day, if you want....

OCCarNut and I are going.......we go every year and stay at the Courtyard Marriott downtown.... We also hope to meet up with Evok if he goes the same weekend we do.... THIS year, however, we are going to make sure we get reservations to go through the GM Heritage Museum ahead of time..... You L.A. guys.......Spirit Airlines (we like to call it "Ghetto Airlines") usually has non-stop flights from L.A. to Detroit for around $200. You leave on a red-eye, get into Detroit around 5am or so.

knightfan: I'm not really sure when I'll be there, but probably on the weekend sometime. It really all depends on when I have basketball practice/games and how the auto show schedule works into that. I'm in Champaign BTW.

We should try to all aim for the same day this year. Looks like there's a good chance that me, my buddy (Ray), Josh, ChrisPauwels, and (possibly) Northie and Cort are all going on the same day. W00t!

It's very tempting... I'm about 60/40 right now about going. It would be cool to meet the members, and definitely cool to see what the one concept I really care about.

One would hope, but I doubt. Its not a very big or significant show compared to anything else. Just all the cars with little fanfare.

I think we were the first to see the Suzuki Reno. I nearly wet myself I was so thrilled. Or maybe it was because they parked the car next to the restrooms in a corner next to a pretzel cart.

I'd like to try to go on the same day as NOS and company, but someone has to tell me how much it'll cost, damnit. :P I have a very limited supply of money that mostly goes towards gas, so I need to know. Also, being that it's pretty far away, I'll need a place to stay. Meaning one I don't have to pay for. :D These are two things that will decide if I go... before my parent's have their say.

*grins*

That _would_ be awesome ... but, keep in mind, if I go, it'll have to be a weekend day....sorry :(.

Oh wow...you're not that far away. I have a few friends in the Champaign/Clinton/Decatur area ... next time I'm down there, I'll try to remember to let you know, in case you want to meet up....

As for the Chicago Auto Show, yes, I'd be going on a weekend, too. In fact, if one of my buddies (now living in Decatur) comes up on a weekend, maybe we all could plan to go the same day...we'll see. We have plenty of time to plan :).

And...basketball practice/games?

Hope you have fun! But have fun getting to the Cobo the streets and parking is so messed up its better to park in the Joe Louis arena parking.

Im going for sure. I want to go on one of the press days but I dont want to where a suit or be on T.V. like I was this year. I hope I can get tickets to the Non-Public show. Thats awesome. I want to see a Camaro and a new RWD pontiac with V8.

Last Year Was cool when Bob walked around and talked to people. I started talking about the Solstice and Future RWD. "The only Thing Limiting me from jumping through the loops is...." then i said "What is holding you back" He looked and Said "Look at this car," It was A GTO, "And thats it" I said "the GTO :blink: "
"Nope,..... Its a Car" Then it hit me, you have to figure out the loops. I counldn't Tell you what it is, it just is. Think about it!

He is the nicest guy in automotive I've talked to. He sat in the GTO so did I in the Driver seat. We talked for 20 Min until he went and talked about the Solstice to Media. We covered all the cars GM made almost and Talked about how GM will take "Toyota by the Horns" He said two things Agressiveness and Offense.

The Question I have thought About was Have steped up to the plate Now?

To me, Yes, What about You?
