Put your hands up for Detroit

Today I managed to zoom down to Detroit for the 2008 North American International Autoshow...

The show was well put together and I'll post a some more pics tomorrow.

Thanks to some excellent driving -- 350km trip at an average cruising speed of 165km/h -- we had plenty of post-show time for exploring the hood & it's condemned buildings, doing some shopping (in the suburbs of course), having lunch and winning some money at the Motor City Casino.

Not bad for a day trip!

Mazda something or other... taken right from the pages of 1989 Batmobile User Manual. "I'm batman, I'm batman!"

Still quite early at the show. It wasn't even busy yet...

Interesting Detroit fact of the day: Detroit's murder rate is ranked #1 in USA with 47.3 people in 100,000 getting capped. Going there is like being in From Dusk till Dawn, you need to get the hell out before the sun begins to set.

Next time for sure! Sorry!

Everyone keeps asking "Hey, why didn't you invite me?"

Who thought it'd be so popular...
