    Thanks JB. Except for the most prestigious show in the world these days, Geneva, every other major show in the last year has been less than it was in previous years. It is no longer the “in place” for an increasing number of new vehicle reveals.

    Hence, why GM will reveal the C8 this summer in a stand alone major event — completely separate from an auto show.

        This trend is interesting. It bodes well though for the C8 ME to be introduced at the NCM 25th anniversary late this summer.

          Many of us will be at NCM at the end of the National Corvette Caravan to see it. A superbly nice arrival present!

            Hmmm ... Things change I guess, I used to look forward to going to this show, but I haven't been in the last two years. It does seem like the established "new" car shows are experiencing a decline in traffic. Could it be attributed to the social media explosion of info out there wrt new models. I go to the local car dealer sponsored new car show, here in town to see the new cars, but it it doesn't hold my interest for long. I guess were only interested in certain models, and if not there ... who cares. Maybe we can go to the NCM this year.

              I always enjoyed the sideshow merchandising at the New York Auto Show. I especially remember a fellow who sold a paint protecting sealant. He would apply it to a car hood, then put some lighter fluid on the hood, and set it on fire. After the fire went out, the paint just got a wipe from a damp cloth, and was as good as new. I am surprised the fire marshal allowed such a demonstration.
