Get ready for a special webcast from the site of the biggest one-day automotive event in the world! Once again we’ll be back on the curb and ready to ogle the classics cruising up and down Michigan’s most famous avenue, Woodward. This year we’re welcoming a bevy of guests including Tricia Hecker, Director of Mopar Marketing; Jim Hall, automotive analyst; Richard Cox, Director of Dodge and SRT; Richard Rawlings, star of Discovery Channel’s “Fast N’ Loud”; Mark Phelan, critic for the Detroit Free Press; and Steve Pasteiner, classic car expert and former designer.
CAR Chief Economist Sean McAlinden reports that we’ll see at least 40 million Chinese vehicles produced a year by the end of the decade, and the nation’s energy policy, not environment, will drive the types of vehicles built.
It’s a special edition from the 2014 CAR Management Briefing Seminars in Traverse City, Michigan!
