Michigan.
    "This was our best show ever," said Harold Kuhn, NAIAS co-chair and owner
of Park Motor Sales in Detroit. "The automobile manufacturers presented an
absolutely stunning array of more than 750 vehicles never before seen together
at an auto show anywhere in the world."
    Co-chair Russell M. Shelton, owner of Shelton Pontiac-Buick in Rochester
Hills,  echoed Kuhn's remarks, adding, "It takes an incredible effort to put
this show together.  Much of the success of this show is due to the hundreds
of hard working men and women from Cobo Center, the City of Detroit, the
skilled trades and, of course, the staff of the Detroit Auto Dealers
Association."
    Some 6,379 media from 70 countries received credentials to cover the 1999
NAIAS.
