By 6:30 p.m. tomorrow night when I land in Michigan I’ll have a definite need for that new embroidered leather jacket that Acura presented me with during last year’s Drive to Five Celebration…
The high temperature for the day in Detroit is forecast to be a whopping 37 degrees Fahrenheit – a full 30 degrees colder than I’d be dealing with here at home in Scottsdale, Arizona. Am I ready to leave this beautiful blue sky? Usually I’d hesitate to – but I’m extremely excited about being able to participate as a guest of the most anticipated auto show in the country.
If time permitted, I would love to be making the exactly 2,000-mile (each way) trip in my trusty old Acura Legend — and you can bet I’d be stopping at the state line to take a picture like this upon arrival. My friend Ben is every bit as road-trip-crazy as I am. He’s owned his 1992 Acura Legend LS coupe since the day it was brand new. Michigan is one of the states he’s been to with his car that I haven’t yet seen with mine. I’m jealous!
For those who won’t be making the trek to the North American Int’l Auto Show, the next-best thing will be to join the live web broadcast on Monday afternoon to see what’s going on. Acura’s press conference will be held at 2:35 p.m. Eastern time. The following link will get you there.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
