Detroit auto show creates optimism in the car business

By Scott Pohl, WKAR News



The North American International Auto Show opens to the public in Detroit tomorrow, and carmakers hope the event will spark a rebound following a bad year.

Some companies are back at the show in Detroit after deciding not to display vehicles in 2009.

WKAR's Scott Pohl spoke with Barron Meade, vice-chairman of the Detroit Auto Show, at a press preview this week.

He says people in the automotive business are optimistic that this year's show will rejuvenate interest in cars and trucks at a crucial time.
