Car modeling isn't just a girls game any more. We scoured the floor of the 2013 New York Auto Show to find some of the hottest car models and see what they had to say about the industry and what it's like to have to stand in front of a car for 8 hours at a time. We expected stories about unwelcome advances, but one this we didn't expect to find was Luis Santiago, a Dodge Ram spokesmodel who's been in the business for 7 years. He said he's become used to being asked, "Where's the girl?" and takes it in stride. Luis was the only male model at the 2013 New York Auto Show and the field is still dominated by women. That's probably not going to change any time soon, but we'll expect to find more Luis' in the future now that more and more women are purchasing cars.
