2004 Detroit auto show

The 2009 Detroit auto show is almost here--even if most of Detroit may be gone by the time January rolls around.

We've shown you the basics for the debuts in our 2009 Detroit Auto Show preview--a myriad of vehicles from the new Buick LaCrosse, to a Shelby Mustang, to the Fisker Karma. Tomorrow evening, we'll take the wraps off the 2009 BMW Z4 as well, and there's more to come in terms of previews, blogs, photos, and general drama-heightening.

So while you sip coffee and await the brewing Carmageddon, take note of the press conferences scheduled for Cobo Hall:
