Volkswagen and Their American Success Story

The American-built Volkswagen Passat is a success story of epic proportions. First, Volkswagen redesigned the Passat with American drivers in mind. Then, they moved production to Chattanooga, Tennessee. Then, they put a kid in a Darth Vader costume to advertise the futuristic styling and power of the new Passat. As if that wasn't enough, among the many awards piled onto the sedan, the 2012 Passat is the Motor Trend Car of the Year.

The 2012 Chicago Auto Show

I cycled in and arrived first at the wrong entrance to McCormick Place. "Am I at the right place for the auto show?" I asked a security guard. He looked me over an asked "do you have a delivery" as he scanned my bike helmet and messenger bag.
