Default Grand Rapids Auto Show

Is anyone going to go to the GR auto show next week? 27th - 30th

I'm definitly going to be there, since it'* only a 20 minute drive from my school. I don't know what day I am going yet.

It'* not as big or as elegant as Detroit, but it'* much less crowded, so you can play with the cars and see them better. However, they don't have all the cars you see in Detroit, which is dissapointing. I'm only going cause it'* really close to where I live out there. If you are on the eastside, and have already been to Detroit, this won't be nearly as spectacular. But its still fun to go.

It'* at the Devos Place in downtown GR.

Yes, well I'm going to Detroit tomorrow. By the way did you go to Detroit today on all that snow?

I think that the fact that it will be less crowded makes up for the fact that there won't be all the cars from Detroit. --> But as long as Pontiac displays the full package,,, what'* the problem? (well, I'm just being selfish).

Now an address and name of the location would really help. Also, let me know if there is a web site regarding this activity.


Thanks a lot Sol.

Here is the website:

The Detroit show was sweet. Lots of great stuff out there.

But last year at the GR show, they didn't even have the GXP Bonnie if that answers your question. I just had fun playing with the gear shifters in the RX8 and the SRT-4.

Thanks for the link.

Actually I live really close to Detroit. But going down there isn't that fun.

So tell me, how crowded was it?

If your talking about Detroit, it wasn't bad at all. Going during a snowstorm was a good idea. I still had trouble taking some pictures, but it wasn't bad.

The GR show was just a fraction of the crowd in Detroit.
