Auto Show 2009 Wrap Up

January 26, 2009

Well, the 2009 North American International Auto Show has come and gone and I, being the lover of all things with four wheels and an engine (no, this doesn’t mean I hate motorcycles) that I am, made a trip down to downtown Detroit’s COBO Hall to see what automakers had in store for us this year. Unfortunately, this year, the festivities seemed a bit…muted, compared to the 2008 show. There was still a show to be had just…less of one this time around. I imagine that this can be attributed to the failing global economy, which has caused automakers to cut back on the wild and flashy concepts and begin investigating alternative fuel sources and introduce more conservative designs. In a nutshell, this was the “theme” of this year’s Auto Show. Everyone is going green.

Check out the rest of my Auto Show 2009 coverage after the jump.
