Tear down for the 2014 North American International Auto Show began the minute the doors closed Sunday night.

"Fast but safe. There's more shows lined up right behind this one," said Anthony Jahn. "We have two, three weeks at the most."

Cars were removed from their places on platforms, turntables or the floor. They're taken to the loading dock on the west side.

"There's people watching everybody's move," said Dennis Crossley.

Now it's the 18-wheeler show. Reliable Carriers of Canton is putting 75 trucks into action.

"We have open trucks, we got enclosed trucks, climate trucks, climate-control trucks," said Steve Bradley, of Reliable Carriers.

The goal was to get all of the vehicles out of Cobo on Sunday night. Union workers then took aim at the displays, which is good, reliable work for union men and women.

"This is a big part of pay each year," said Quentin Quidley, a union carpenter from Warren. "As sporadic as construction is, a lot of us rely on the auto show."
