This is my second year going. Before last year’s, I had never even heard of it, so it was a real thrill factor to go; less so this year. But still not to be missed!

Most likely future Yitzmobile

V6 Camaro RS. I sat in the Corvette right before it though, and I must say those were some nice seats. Maybe in 15 more years...

Biggest disappointment

No Toyota S-FR concept car! No Toyota S-FR concept car!!!

The people in the Toyota section didn’t even know what I was talking about.

Biggest relief

The Buick Avista concept was there. As nice as advertised.

Best thing that wasn’t a car

This animatronic (i.e. moving and blinking) Cadillac supercharged LT4 engine model. (Kinja is having problems with orientation metadata; sorry...)

Biggest Scumbag Steve move

BMW brought an M1, but it was upstairs in the lounge for viewing by BMW owners only. Last year they had a bunch of heritage motorsports cars down on the floor; I seem to recall both racing and stock 2002's.

Most better-looking in person

The Ford GT. Amazing. Still looks a bit reptilian, but not as much as in photos.

Dumbest hype

The Toyota 86. “Finally a sports car returns to the Toyota lineup!” the spokesperson kept saying.

Sexiest

Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale (?)

Most improved

NSX GT3

Worst impression

Porsche, who locked the GT4 and put the only Boxster (718) on a closed platform. No heritage cars either.

Most bang for the floor space

Lotus, whose entire exhibit was the Evora 400, but WHOSE ENTIRE EXHIBIT WAS THE EVORA 400!

Classiest

Volvo P1800 (?)

Most pathetic

Mitsubishi, allll the way back in the back of the annex. Poor Mitsubishi!

Best of Show

Chitty Chitty MF’ing Bang Bang.
