For the second consecutive year I went with a friend to the annual auto show in downtown Richmond. There weren’t as many cars this time: no exotic display, no Alfa presence, and no AMG GT from Mercedes. But there was still a lot of cool stuff. I drove this time, and since we were there on a cold Sunday morning the TL had the rooftop of the parking garage to itself at first.

The LS is too big for me. I was all the way back in the front seat and my friend was in the back seat and said he still had tons of leg room.

I still enjoyed the show despite fewer exhibits. My favorites were the RDX, the LC, and the GS350. Most disappointing were the Passport and Continental.
