It’s that time of year again, when automakers unleash their latest rides. This year’s auto show runs from Jan. 13 to Jan. 26. Until then, we thought it would be fun to take you on a ride down memory lane as we look at the shows of the past.
In 1975, visitors saw about 250 motor homes and cars, including the rides of Hollywood star Charlie Chaplin and mobster Al Capone, according to “The First Century of the Detroit Auto Show.” The show cost auto fans just $2 as opposed to today's $95. ASSOCIATED PRESS Buy Photo
