    The Big Three's Big Show

    Does this qualify as a funeral? The Detroit Auto Show begins this week, but no one seems very excited. It may very well be the last showing for Chrysler, which could go under later this year.

Some automakers, like Nissan and Mitsubishi, are skipping the show altogether, while the rest have scaled back their displays. (Sorry, no GM fashion show this year). "When you have your hand out to the government and when you're operating at this point on government funds, it is a little inappropriate to give a big party," one industry analyst tells Reuters.
