Image: Hot Takes NAIAS 2018(TTAC Hot Takes are video roundup posts which will occur whenever we can get Michael Accardi into hair and makeup. These posts are a mandate of our VerticalScope overlords, who are fascinated with the new video medium of YouTube. Watch our other videos here.)

TTAC had a fully alert crew in the snowy Canadian province of Detroit earlier this week for this year’s North American International Auto Show. The only person willing to put on a purple tie was Michael Accardi, so we filmed him checking out the show’s (rather limited) highlights.

From a new Volkswagen Jetta and counterfeit exhaust pipes on a future GAC offering, to the shockingly sturdy interior trim found in Ford’s new subcompact EcoSport, we covered just about everything.

As you can see, the coverage only took a couple of minutes. What does that tell you about the overall impressiveness of NAIAS this year?
