The Chicago Auto Show ended yesterday and I had a blast. I wrote a bit more about the CAS at Chicago Auto Show 2020 online for Global Traveler.
As I have previously written, I am not a car guy. That never stops me from soaking in the atmosphere and having a great time at the Chicago Auto Show. This year was awesome as always.
The CAS always starts with Media Day, which is my favorite day. While there is a big media contingent, it is obviously a much smaller crowd than when the show open to the public. It's a chance to see cars up close, test them for comfort and get pictures without the usual hordes of people.
When the CAS opens to the public a couple days later, the crowds pour in. Despite the mass of humanity, it is still fun, because of the vibe. It's fun to see which vehicles attract the largest, most enthusiastic crowds. There are always a few lesser known vehicles that surprise me with their popularity.
Regular readers know that I have a particular interest in celebrities. This year, there were a few less stars at the show, but I did get the chance to meet race car driver Bryan Herta and reconnect with ABC Chicago newscaster Roz Varon. My celeb encounters might have been down, but they were quality celebs!
