The Detroit Auto Show is one of the biggest auto shows of the year and manufacturers like to unveil upcoming models. Something to show where each manufacturer thinks the industry is headed. Ford has finally granted my wish of having the Euro Focus available in North America. Now I know that the recent recession has been tough on the automotive industry, especially the American 3. They’ve been building such junk over the years that people are considering foreign cars first before looking at American competition. Ford had the foresight to change their ways before the recession began so they were better off and was able to ride it out without a government bailout. GM and Chrysler did not unfortunately which brings me to the whole point of this blog entry. It’s important now to show the future with concept cars. Something that tells the public that they’re going to build cars that people want and that they’re going to build them well. Ford and GM have done a good job of this so far. Chysler, no…. They’re pushing their current lineup with new paint jobs. Seriously? I’ve predicted that when the smoke settles, one of the big 3 will not be around and guess who that’s going to be….
