The North American International Auto Show in Detroit may be smaller in 2009, but there will still be dozens of new cars and car concepts introduced during the media event Jan. 11-13 and thousands of suppliers, carmakers and car models on display. And it won't be just about the sheet metal. From the housing for the batteries of Toyota's electric vehicle concept to a radiator tank using bio-resin, interior trim and polycarbonate windows, plastics will have its time in the spotlight as well. To bring just a small taste of the plastics side of the auto industry during the show in real time, Plastics News staff reporter Rhoda Miel will be micro-blogging during the event via Twitter. Just check out twitter.com/plasticsnews for the updates. Molder and interior trim specialist Johnson Controls Inc. gets the show started at 8:15 a.m. Sunday. And if you know of a debut or press conference that we shouldn't miss, give us a “tweet” from the show floor.
