    Hi, I’m from Paraguay-South America and I always saw the show on TV or when I was visit Ann Arbor. I moved to Grand Rapids 18 month ago and would love to enjoy and support this amazing event with my husband or a friend.

  • Isabel Hansen

    Hello!

    I would love to go, because I have never been before! I have always wanted to go see the Auto Show but never have made it out. I’d take my wife with me and we would end the day with an awesome dinner in Detroit!

  • Jenna Paul

    I would absolutely love to take my fiancé!

  • Sandy Andrzejewski

    I’ll take my husband! We’re Detroiters now living out of state and already have hotel res to see the NAIAS. Free tickets would help with expenses!

  • Dona Reimer

    I would love to let my husband take our son, who will be celebrating his 15th birthday on Sunday. Our son has never been and every time we see a commercial he asks if we can go.

    The only time I have been able to make it to a NAIAS was when I was a child with my father. I remember getting to sit in one of Cadillac’s concept car and I felt like it would take off and out of COBO at the push of a tiny button on the dash. Many fond memories at COBO Center, and downtown Detroit altogether but that day with my father takes the cake.

    Id take a dear friend and companion with me this year if I were to obtain a couple tickets. One that has never been to an auto show before, and I know it would make that person feel like a kid in a candy shop.

    Thanks, and Cheers.

  • Tom Snyder

    I would like to see the new automotive products as my vehicle is getting up in years. I plan on taking my friend Michelle.

  • Jay

    I have to say, I just love cars and everything about them. I get excited to think about all those cars in one place. I would love to take my son to the NAIAS.

  • Woo

    I’m in the market for a new car, and I’d like to see all my choices in one spot to narrow down the competition. I would like to take my spouse with me to make that choice.

  • Charlie Alvarez

    I would love to go to the 2014 NAIAS! I am a Texas Native who has lived in Michigan for almost 18 years and I have never been. This would be an awesome birthday present (it’s the 19th) and I would take my beautiful wife of 16 years.

  • Brian

    I’d love to go to the 2014 NAIAS because it showcases many aspects of American design and innovation and Ford having a live Assembly line seems like something that shouldn’t be missed. I would bring my gf and hope she doesn’t get too attached to any of the high priced vehicles

  • Patricia Sersen

    I would very much enjoy going to the NAIAS this year. I love looking at the new and concept cars. As we will have a new young driver in the next year, my husband and I are intrigued by the idea of cars that do a lot of the driving for the operator!

  • Alan

    I have been in the car business on and off for years but have only had the opportunity once to go to the show!! I would like to take my brother in law, its been a rough year for both of us but he is my best bud. He has been there when no one else was!! We are both car guys and it would be amazing to surprise him with a ticket to the NAIAS in Detroit!!

  • DeEtta

    I would love to win these tickets for my husband!! He was amazing for me last year and I don’t know how I would have got thru 2013 without him. He took me to see Keith Urban last week in G.R. which was a total surprise. This would be an awesome surprise for him!! He would take my brother, them 2 are inseparable!!

  • Sue Grassmyer

    I would love to go and take my teen kids to show them STEM in action. Show them the engineering concepts and the creative designs.

  • Jack

    I would like to go to the Auto Show. I have liked in Michigan my entire life and have yet to experience the show. i would take my wife and purchase the additional tickets for my children so we could make this a family day out.

  • Glenna Anderson

    Always love visiting the Henry Ford especially enjoying their fantastic “Driving America” exhibit. What fun it would be the visit THE Auto Show!

  • Judy Frankowiak

    I love the history of the automobile and am proud I was born in the Historic city of Detroit “Motor City”. I will call it that forever. Henry Ford was a genius. Love looking at new designs, but will never forget the origin of the automobile. I want to take my brother who helps me out a lot. He works hard and needs a fun activity to relieve stress.

  • Mike

    I have always wanted to go to the Auto Show. I would love to win these tickets and take my brother. We had a long year in 2013 and it would be awesome to go and start the new year off right. My brother works hard and it would be great to surprise him with a ticket to the Auto Show!! Thanks

  • Victor Reynolds

    I would like to attend this year’s NAIAS because I’d like to prove to myself how superior the Detroit automakers cars are. Of course, I’d like to experience and appreciate the hard work done by local NAIAS staff and contractors in putting together the auto show. I would take my friend whose husband passed away last year. Her husband was very fond of automotives.

  • Brian

    I would take my 16 year old son. He is very interested in becoming an engineer in the auto industry and I think this could be a very good learning experience with the concept cars and displays of future ideas. As well it would make for a good father/son experience and day out together. Since we live out in the country it would be a good experience for him to see the good in Detroit, not just all the bad he sees on the news.
