Incoming NADA head gets to the show, finally
Bill Underriner, incoming chairman of the National Automobile Dealers Association, made it to the Detroit show, despite his original flight being canceled. The Billings, Mont. dealer arrived in Detroit about 9:30 on Sunday night, roughly eight hours later than planned. He has Honda, Buick, Hyundai and Volvo franchises -- and showed up at the Ford press conference first thing Monday morning along with other NADA board members to greet Mark Fields, Ford Motor Co.'s president of the Americas.
