Re-post for people who aren’t vampires, or European.
First I’m going to do the special requests that people submitted yesterday. Then it’s just going to be fairly random pictures of things that were shiny, and me doing my best to sound like an auto journalist or Mr. Regular.
DISCLAIMER: All pics were taken with a cheap smart phone, so don’t expect perfection. At least they’re all landscape, except for a few that merit portrait mode.
First up, Racin’ Jasons request for Honda Ridgeline, Fiat 124, and Civics, (don’t worry “other sports cars” is covered extensively later.)
At this point, I’ll add I learned nothing new about any of the Honda’s. At least tech wise. Honda didn’t have much, or any, material out. It was basically just a dealer showroom without salesman. This may change this weekend though.
IDK what that button does, but I like it.
I’m 6'1 and fit back there reasonably, comfortably would be relative.
Now on to the Civics
The harsh lighting was just wrecking my potato.
I though the hatch was underwhelming
Now to the Fit.
The key location, lol.
You weren’t allowed to get close to it :( Although I can say the interior is the exact same as the Miata, as far as I could tell. Couldn’t get a good pic of it though.
Now on to the Lexi
This car, maybe, had the most old school interior there.
Yeah, I didn’t wait for people to get out of the way. There was tons of shit to see so I was in a hurry.
Idk what’s with the grey mirrors.
I accidentally deleted the pic of the dash, oops.
Now on to the Jaaaaaag F-type. Not sure if it was a 2017 or ‘18 though.
It still looks gorgeous though, even when photographed by a potato fortunately.
Before hand, I didn’t know it had a clamshell hood.
Now we’ll go, roughly, in order from when I got to the show.
First thing I saw was this Ford prototype thing that seemed interesting. It’s a small CUV/hatchback with the 1.0L ecoboost.
Wasn’t able to get inside of it :(
Then a Focus RS. I never knew how much flake they put in the paint. Unfortunately you can’t see it in the pictures.
Then the ‘stangs
Then there was a party bus Transit.
Then the two Alfas
Onward to GM
Then the Buick convertible. The Cascada or something.
I think this is the LaCrosse, not sure though.
Now a Cadillac that’s not the CT6
Now the CT6. Which to be honest, I was a little underwhelmed with, compared to the one above.
Then the ‘yotas. They really wanted you to know that they make trucks, and a NASCAR. and the Prius shhh!
Back to more TRUCKS!
Time for the Koreans!
A hybrid doodah. I included a pic of a pamphlet.
These are the only two decent pictures I got of the Stinger. My potato couldn’t handle the fact it was spinning at 3 rpm.
Then... The concepts.
I’ll let them introduce themselves.
The Civic’s cousin who went to med school.
Then the, according to FP, basically a NSX :]
Then to Volvo. Which I must say. Their seats didn’t live up to the hype. The interiors were absolutely lovely, but honestly I preferred the Mazada’s and most other’s seats.
Don’t worry For Sweden. I’ll voluntarily ban myself :(
FYI. The interior shot’s are of two different cars. I didn’t take any exterior shot’s of the other one. I think it was an SUV or something.
Now some exotics. Maybe I’m dead inside. But I didn’t really car for any of them, except the Lotuses and one of the Aston Martins.
Smoke break, time to check out what’s in the parking lot.
Now fer ‘Merican classics and others.
But first the new Continental.
Oh shit! The Lotus is gonna try and show’em up!
Ahhh, nice try buddy.
Mazada and VW
FYI I’ve been making this for over an hour at this point.
The Mazada6, you already now what the exterior looks like.
Now the 3. Which really is just a shorter 6. If you don’t need the extra space. I’d highly recommend it over the 6.
Now for one of my favorite car’s at the show.
Also I must confess. I have a thing for the new new beetle, it’s true.
Now for that new SUV thingy.
Misc. stuff (I’m getting tired.)
And now, last but not least.
As Moog said in the MCM/Roadkill special.
“Give me America!”
And one last thing. When I grabbed my wallet off my nightstand this morning, there was some change under it. One of the coins started spinning and landed like this.
I shit you not.
Anyway feel free to ask me anything or yell about the bad photos. Goodnight, good sir/ma’am.
