Bruce Wayne Should Drive A Rolls-Royce

Posted by: Kristen Rich

In all my life, I've never been around cars so shiny, so new and so darn expensive.


Well, I take that back. I'm almost positive I saw a replica the Batmobile at Six Flags Great America during middle school field trip. It might not have been the real one, but it had to cost a good chunk of change, right? You know, I'm going to go out on a limb and say the cars I saw today while touring the floor definitely put on more of a show than the Batmobile. And most of the displays aren't even close to being finished! As an avid reader of various celebrity tabloid magazines, I was obviously a little disappointed when I saw that Rolls-Royce and Bentley had yet to move their vehicles in, but I'm crossing my fingers that tomorrow I'll get a glimpse of the fancy vehicles I have only seen before on MTV Cribs.


I'm also looking forward to using my wonderful intern powers to possibly get an early ride on the Chrysler test track. After all, it will probably be the closest I get to driving a new vehicle until I grab myself a grown-up job (and with the current economic situation, who knows when that will be!) But for now, I'm going to spend my days eyeing the new vehicles from the media center, where us interns have set up camp. From here, we'll be issuing media credentials, running errands and taking advantage of the constant supply of coffee and snacks.


While I'm excited to tackle all the tasks that have been handed to us, it's hard to not to look out on the floor and be in awe of an event so incredibly spectacular. Just seeing the skeleton of what will be North America's largest auto show is enough to make me wonder why I waited 22 years to check it out.
