blogging from the North American International Auto Show

when i saw the sign that said Blogger's Lounge, i just couldn't stay away. there was a big counter with big gorgeous iMacs that said "log into your blog and post what you've seen today" how could i resist an invitation like that?

so far Aunt Far Away and i have checked out all the Ford cars, entered a drawing for a free MP3 player, practiced virtual driving with a cardboard steering wheel, and sat in the driver's seat of the new Lincoln MKX. by far its coolest feature is a double mirror which enables you to see your blind spot without having to check over your shoulder.

i really wanted to practice the virtual parking assist but you only get to ride shotgun to an attendant, which isn't nearly as cool as sitting in the driver's seat and watch the wheel move on its own.

that's all for now. i have to go check out more cool cars and see if i can get a free t-shirt

I wanna hear more about the **BLOGGERS LOUNGE** {sigh....}
Do they offer stock photos to use in conjunction with your posts?
Any other cool amenities?
Do tell!
