Motown - Philly

Cobo Hall in Detroit is playing host to the International Auto Show. we played the black tie-for-charity opening last night. Blue-eyed Soul meets Candy Apple and Chrome.

The stage was set up in the middle of the Daimler Chrysler exhibit

Jeep had a display that was pretty effective.

The Dodge Aspen looked pretty nice.

Nissan had a concept car called the Bevel. Looked interesting...

T-Bone is sharing guitar duties with John, the Mighty Zev Katz is on bass.

Chrysler had a sports car that was quite attractive.

Daryl and John were in excellent form, and the crowd loved the set. Many of the ladies had champagne-fueled dancin' feet, and a few got invited on stage to bop around.

After a night of partying in heels, the Belles of the Ball unwind by discussing the finer points of the improved suspension system in the Mopar muscle car reissues, and whether the new Super Bee is worth the money or if in fact the stock Charger has enough hp to drive to soccer practice. At least I think that's what they were talking about.

It's nice to see Motown in all it's heavy metal glory, and I have to say the American manufacturers held their own against Japan, Korea and Europe. I really liked the Dodge Nitro, an SUV looking car that was under $25k, loaded.
