While SEMA show organizers desperately try to do everything they can to clean up the acts of the some of the exhibitors when it comes to scantily-clad "product specialists," the North American Internaional Auto Show is just getting started. Models in evening gowns tower over Ferarris, specialists in leathery cocktail dresses spice up the Lamborghini exhibit, and even Saleen's exhibit sports women in miniskirts and bare abdomens. Even Chrysler opted to flaunt some sex appeal when it hosted a press conference featuring primetime beauty Eva Longoria.
What's with the chicks and cars, anyway? One would think that with all the emphasis on exciting design, one would want to flaunt the car's beauty, not the model's beauty, right? But maybe that's just it -- image is everything, and the only thing better than beautiful cars is beautiful cars flanked by beautiful people. Now if they would just hire a male model or two, the other half could enjoy the trend.
