Nice pictures Jay, it's good to see most people stuck to their loyalties when they made requests. :D I like the Lexus IS-F picture, except Lexus seems adament on only showing this one colour for the IS-F, and it's such a crap colour.

In regards to people abusing motor show cars, it happens here too. I haven't seen any extensive damage, but I've noticed that many gear knobs are taken off for the Vancouver show.

From what I read, the industry in general do not have as many concept cars as in years past, due to a (supposed) lagging economy. SO I suppose they drag this one out every year to just to have something. Really, all Saab these days are tarted up Opels and Vauxhalls.

I did like the SAABaru, though.

I really wish I could have gone the first week after seeing these. I went this past Saturday when it opened @ 10, and there were ridiculous amounts of people. It made taking pics real difficult. Jay, did you notice Kia had the best looking wemminz? Most had at least one good lookin lady, but Kia was stacked. I got some good shots of the Bulls cheerleaders that were signing autographs at Kia as well, and they were all nice enough to pose for my camera, didn't even have to ask...pretty cool.

Sadly, I was too busy to notice most of the models...and the ones I tried to photograph kept looking away or moving...I later learned they were ordered to do so...GM, Ford, Toyota...Nissan had some very outgoing ones, though.

Man, I missed a lot of other stuff! A person I work with told me he and a friend played Wii on a gigantic screen! For an hour! Truth be known, I treated my venture like an assignment for Final Gear. I guess for the future, I have to have that mindset.

Well, I did sweet talk one into posing, she was with those little tonka toy chevys.

I must say im still not impressed by Subaru's interior. I had a look at the WRX at the Brisbane Motor Show and the interior plactics were all ill-fitting, scratchy and cheap looking. The Forrester and Tribeca are more of the same.

Got some photo's from the Canadian International Auto show, only have a few now because I went on my lunch break in between classes, I'll be going back tomorrow for several more. Sorry some of the cars are cut off a bit, it was REALLY crowded and hard to get any photo's at all. <_<

As I pointed out he meant to post them in the Toronto Auto Show thread, give him a break. He even mentions on there that he's gonna post them up.

Wow looks I went to the wrong auto show. I went to Detroit and apparently Porsche and Aston Martin both pulled out for whatever reasons, which was a bummer. Also there was no Lotus :(
