All of my pictures are now uploaded-

Photo album from NAIAS 2010 meet

Some highlights:

- A late-night parking lot gathering, with multiple COTM winners.

- Dearborn Proving Ground parking area, with many experimental prototype cars.

- Hydrogen fuel-cell powered Town & Country.

- <strike>Toyota Corolla</strike> BYD Auto's new F3-DM, presented by Jim.

- Crappy Chinese electric 'cars' to bring on fiery death.

- The 'New GM'.

- One-of-a-kind Toyota Tundra 'Brooks & Dunn' Edition.

- Fiat 500 Abarth and 500 Electric.

- Chrysler... meh. Wait... they hung a Ram from the roof?!

- Ford's display: So. Much. Win!

- Sean, stuffed in the back of a Supercab Ranger.

- Sean, trapped inside a Honda Crosstour, temporarily unable to escape its wrath.

- My three hour tour of Windsor, Ontario. The US Border Patrol thought I might have been a drug courier, and searched my car accordingly.

When I was at the show, it seemed that the Ford display was by far the most populated display area. It was barely standing room only there. That is a good sign for Ford.

Was there a new Mercury on display somewhere? I was looking for it but never found it.
