    Two shows in one! I loved it…and the decision ( planned or otherwise ) to show the wrap up..and the car being driven out..a treat.
    Thank you.
    Can you please tell me why the Chicago auto show always seems to be last on everyone’s list of being credible or news worthy…or in the same league as other shows? Is there a rating for the shows by journalists? I would love to hear that, and the reasons. Thank you!
