Getting ready for the Auto Show?

Detroit's North American International Auto Show's preview days are a little more than a month away, with automakers and suppliers alike ready to show off new technology.

The two press days, Jan. 14 and 15, are packed with back-to-back news conferences and dozens of new car introductions. And of course, many of those new cars are packed with new plastics technology to reduce weight and improve performance.

But being Detroit, few of the suppliers involved with these new projects can officially talk about those projects. That doesn't mean they can't drop a hint to send Plastics News in the right direction, however.

Feel free to drop an email to Detroit-based reporter Rhoda Miel at rmiel@crain.com or on twitter @PNRhodaMiel to help her wade through the event and make sure to hit the big debuts that the auto industry will be talking about all year.
