    Black tie event is next Friday night, not tonight as stated below.

    This whole week is devoted to pre show press introductions and
    supplier/manufacturer preview days.

  3. I really miss the car-truck.com website.

    The site always did a good job reviewing the Detroit and Los Angeles Car
    Shows and I enjoyed their opinions regarding the various DCX concept
    vehicles.

    Chrysler Corporation used to "rule" the NAIAS - the concepts cars were
    always a clue as to what was coming - the Grand Cherokee, the LH cars, the
    Ram Truck, etc.

    Since the Daimler days and the loss of Bob Lutz, DCX just doesn't provide
    the same excitement. I'm not impressed with the Slingshot or the Jeep
    Rescue and I do not think there will be a very receptive market for the
    Dodge Magnum - who the hell wants a Station Wagon? (The four-door Charger
    concept car from two years ago was fantastic - why didn't they build that?)

    That said, I think the 300 C is awesome - hopefully if the Magnum is a
    failure, DCX can shift production toward the 300C.

    Product is everything - just look at Nissan.

    Marketing/Advertising is next - DCX has had many documented failures in the
    past two years.

    I still think that better days are ahead for DCX - there's a ton of new
    product in the pipeline. I just hope the lessons learned from the Celine
    Dion and Lingere Bowl disasters will result in improved
    Marketing/Advertising.

    As always, time will tell.....

    Have a great week.
