Booth Babes of N.A.I.A.S.

This gallery contains 16 photos.

Call them company representatives, call them product specialists, but what most people call them by is “Auto Show Babes.”
No auto show is complete without them. They are about as significant to the auto show industry as gasoline is to the transportation industry. While exotic sportscars can draw a crowd on their own, it is typically the more mundane means of transportation that usually gets adorned with beautiful women.
