Anyone sleeping in their car?

I figure since its a saab event there will be at least a few people who have put off hotel reservations too long and will be forced to camp out in their cars. Is this sort of thing going to be frowned upon? Also since its Detroit I don't want to have my car jacked from underneath me while I sleep in it. Is anyone else going to be doing the same this year?

It's not IN detroit. It's in Troy. A suburb.It's 20 minutes north of Detriot. I talked to a guy who used to live there last week. He said it was nice.

I was joking about the Detroit part, it actually does sound like a nice place.

Drew thanks for the offer, I guess I'll just pack a sleeping bag and worry about it when I get there.

Troy is a very nice area. For all purposes, it shouldn't even be considered part of Detroit.

How are you going to get any hot Saab groupies if you're sleeping in your car?

"Hey babe, yeah I like clear corners too. Mmm citrine, stop, you're getting me all riled up. You wanna ditch this and go back to my place? Yeah, it's parked right outside. The 96 900 in the corner. Wait, where are you going? I swear it's not a V6!! It's a turbo, baby! Come back!"

Yeah that might not work.
