Detroit just hosted its 106th North American International Auto Show (NAIAS). Started in 1907, and turning international in 1989, it has always been a big deal for all car fans. Which is why over 700,000 awesome people around the globe love to come year after year.
Now, the show might be over, but excitement is still in the air. Which is why we dug into the archives to show you, our badge-wearing, Ford-loving fans, some old shots from auto shows of the past. Check out that rollerblader jumping over the red-hot Escort. And how about that first pony?
Looking back makes us realize how far we’ve come. To think, we have hands-free technology to open a hatch with your foot and cars that can parallel park themselves. Take that, driver’s ed! It’s incredible the way technology has allowed us to advance, and the inspiration behind our advancements is you, the driver. Which is why we want you to share some of your favorite auto show moments with us. What have been some of your favorite years? Which Ford classics do you think made the biggest statements?
