From Crazy Concepts to Highlights of The 2009 Detroit Auto Show

— January 20, 2009 — Autos
Trend Hunters love covering car shows, from the Detroit Auto Show to the Tokyo Motor Show. Over the years, we've collected a solid collection of awe-inspiring cars and concepts spotted at these events. Two of our Trend Hunters (Jeremy and Jacob) have even been lucky enough to check out the Detroit Auto Show themselves. The cluster below highlights some of the most memorable auto show moments, including their NAIAS coverage.

Implications - My favorite of these futuristic vehicles has got to be the Pininfarina Sintesi Fuel Cell Concept as I'm a sucker for sleek and sexy car design with a feminine touch.
