There was some great interactive activities at the auto show, included riding in a Dodge Ram Power Wagon on a test track. I had the chance to ride in this awesome vehicle. The ride may seem a little bumpy, but that isn’t to bad considering this vehicle was driving over steel high beems. This was a special course designed to show what The Dodge Ram Power Wagon can do and man it can do some serious stuff. A vehicle like this can run-over Superman, maybe, but You never know.
Mike Kara Presents.....
Community Focus/Community Fun
Well, Well, Well, February 2008 has come and gone. One really big event in the Chicagoland area during February is The Chicago Auto Show. I remember literally growing up with the auto show as a kid pretty much through the entire 1980's often with all three of My grandparents. The Chicago auto show can be a thrill for a kid or kid of all ages. Every year at McCormick Place in Downtown Chicago, The Chicago Auto comes to town. Yes, Mike Kara Presents... finally had the chance to invade the Chicago Auto Show and get a behind the scenes look at all the new cars and concept cars being unveiled. This is that big chance for many Automobile manufactures to feature their lastest and greatest, including concepts cars, cars that are not on the market yet, but are premier them and letting the public see them right here and now.
Also I had the chance to drive the State Farm Racing Car. This is a interactive experience, where You actually are driving a race car on a track. You have a video screen and virtually drive around the race track. The car actually moves based on how You drive the car. Is weird because unlike a video game the car actually moves according to the video screen. Again awesome.
Again all major car manufactures were holding press conferences and presentations for the media to show what their cars can really do. High ranking executives of some of the biggest automobile makers were on hand to speak on behalf of their shiny brand news cars, as well as concept cars.
