LOTS OF GLITTER: Car bling is in abundance at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, which opens to the public on Saturday.

LIGHTS, GRILLES, ENGRAVING: New adornments range from daytime running lights that go up the hood of the new Cadillac ATS, to a bold grille on the Ford Fusion, to engraving within the lamps of the new Corvette and Ford Transit.

SPOOKY: The tail lamps on the high-performance version of the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee are tinted black, giving it an ominous look. Ralph Gilles, a Chrysler design leader, noted the lamps are "kind of like death."
