The first day of the show was dead on our first few years doing this... now it's a mad house by about noon. We try to get out of there by 1 or 2pm and move on to other things (like go karting and pizza).Aww man!! Another local event I can't make. I've got a wedding that day
On the other hand, I try not to hit the autoshow the opening day... its just madness compared to the last Saturday of the show.
You guys should make a trip downtown Ann Arbor that night (or Friday night).
