Very interested to see how the show is this year, with the economy being what it is. Historically, domestic economic concerns have had a marked impact on both vendor and attendee participation, but I'm dubious about this year. For some reason, I suspect the aftermarket industry isn't suffering as much (yet).

Also, would love to hear GRM staff's takes on things like the EPA crackdowns and the protection of production cars' use in motorsports. Dangerous times if either of those things don't get the right support and protections.

Didn't the RPM Act pass a while back?

Just a personal thing. There should be a booth for a company called E-Muscle Cars.  They convert muscle cars to electric and should have at least an EV Cobra on display.  I haven't heard how many other cars they were able to to convert for the show.  My kiddo did a bunch of the fab work for those cars.

Eagerly anticipating what the next worst in show is. I expect the truck market to win again.

I don't believe it did.

EPA crackdown, protection of production cars etc - that's been a hot topic for at least half a decade.

Wish I could be there in person, but I'm excited to see what's hot on the show floor.
