Walk along with us as we continue through the 2015 Detroit Auto Show....
A mid-60s Ford GT350 Shelby Cobra sitting among the Ford Mustangs. A smarter photographer would've taken a photo or two of the new 350 Cobra, or at least a 2015 Mustang or two so that you could compare. You've got me. Let's move along.
A new pickup truck looks pretty good on me, doesn't it?
Here's a shot of me standing in the middle of the Lincoln display. I mostly include it as a placeholder to mention one of the most pleasant incidents of the show for us. We mostly stopped by the Lincoln exhibit to enter a couple of songs we really like in the Essential Driving Songs contest being hosted by Ann Delisi and sponsored by Lincoln, Shinola, and Revel Speakers. As it turned out, Ann Delisi herself was there taking entries. She hosts a true bright spot for Detroit radio -- her Essential Music Show -- on WDET from 10 am to 2 pm on weekends. We had a really nice conversation with her about the current state of the business of music and publishing, and learned quite a bit about the business of voiceover talent in the bargain.
Our essential songs? Monique entered "Torque Wrench" by The Reefriders, since it's the favorite of her songs from their album of surfing music, "Two Wave Hold Down." I entered an old favorite of mine ,"Ska'd for Life" by Shu. (I suppose I could've entered "Running Down a Dream" by Tom Petty, but that song just makes people speed. I didn't want to be responsible for the ensuing tickets.)
After our pleasant conversational interlude it was back out onto the floor. Next up, the next generation of the Mazda MX-5 Miata:
Monique thinks it would look pretty good on her.
