And the grandiosity of things doesn't end with the presentations of the vehicles. Even the press packages are elegantly and elaborately conceived and designed. In fact, many of them resemble presentation coffee table books that normally run $100 or more. The booths are also top-notch, with dramatic lighting that make even the "ugly" cars ( and yes, there were some) look good.

NAIAS, which kicked off its Press Days Jan. 4, takes the old adage that "Bigger is Better" and turns it completely upside down. And although it may not be the biggest international auto show in the world, it has become the one that everyone looks to for its electrifying introductions and endless surprises.

Daimler-Chrysler, Ford and GM provided some of the biggest surprises and best introductions, but Toyota, Mazda and Nissan made their presence felt as well, staging some exciting introductions.

The crown jewel of this year's debuts was the introduction of the 2005 Chevrolet Corvette. Held at the Detroit Opera House Monday night, it was a coronation fit for a king. Less than 1,000 of the journalists invited were on hand to partake of the h'orderves and champagne as Chevrolet officially unveiled the sixth generation of its most celebrated model. Journalists attending the gala were presented with a 1:18 die-cast model of the C6 Corvette, one of 2500 limited pieces produced specifically for the launch of the new model. After the fanfare was over, all those in attendance were treated to a five-star feast, courtesy of Chevrolet.

But let's not lose ourselves over these two exciting entries at this year's NAIAS. After all, there were over 700 cars at Detroit's COBO Center, and Roadfly's top brass was there, seeking out cars deserving of the magazine's top awards. (Click Here for Roadfly's Best of Awards)
