So, years and years ago I used to go to the Chicago Auto Show every year like clockwork. A few years back, I stopped going. It was just too crowded every time I tried to go. (Here’s a shocker – the longer I live in Chicago, the worse I get with crowds.) But I’ve missed going – I don’t know anything about cars (except to drive them) – but I sure do love to look at them. And yes – it’s mostly because they’re brightly colored and shiny.
This year I was able to get a media pass for Social Media Day. I got mine from Chevy through a link talking about the Volt. They had a track that you could take a ride on in a Volt. I actually lucked out and scored and extra long ride – there were some serious journalists doing some photo ops where we needed to park.
They also had a section where you could go for a ride in a Jeep, and also a Toyota area. I didn’t ride in either of those, but it was really neat to see.
So, on to some photos!
Everybody brought a cop car this year –
Mostly I just ran around and took pictures. It was superfun.
So, hello and goodbye from the Chicago Auto Show! Enjoy!
