Detroit Auto Show just not considered that important....i understand they are changing it to a warmer month in detroit to help revive some interest. Auto Shows on general have slipped for a variety of reasons.

Yep, I'm excited. Detroit in January is just not that exciting, and TBH it is not as if new cars are only released at the beginning of the year anymore. Supposed to be having a lot more "outdoor" elements to it, ride and drive events, autonomous tech demos, and the Detroit GP should be going on one of the weekends it is occurring for a double whammy. They're trying to make it something you can come to for a few days and have other auto-related activities going on.

I think everyone was expecting the C8 in Detroit, GM included, something tells me something went wrong or parts got held up
