1955 Lincoln Futura

Lincoln Futura

By Frank Peiler–Publisher, Collectible Automobile magazine  

My first visit to the Chicago Auto Show happened in 1953, when I was 12 years old. Before then, I had to rely on the huge auto-show sections in Sunday editions of the three newspapers my family subscribed to: the Chicago Tribune, Chicago Daily News, and Chicago Sun-Times. I vividly recall pawing through the 1951 auto-show sections for every picture I could find of the Buick XP-300 and the only car that really amazed me, the LeSabre. It was then that I resolved to attend the auto show in person—as soon as I could persuade someone to take me.

CrossBlue Concept

Volkswagen CrossBlue Concept

Volkswagen gave attendees of the 2013 Detroit Auto Show a look at two concept cars that might very well see production in the near future.

Headlining its press conference was the CrossBlue SUV concept. If it were to see production (which we think is highly likely at this point), it would rival the GMC Acadia, Honda Pilot, and Mazda CX-9 among 3-row, 7-passenger “large-midsize” crossovers. Though physically larger than the premium-midsize Volkswagen Touareg, a vehicle based on the CrossBlue would be less expensive.
