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...
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.
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.
The Toyota 86. “Finally a sports car returns to the Toyota lineup!” the spokesperson kept saying.
Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale (?)
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!
Volvo P1800 (?)
Mitsubishi, allll the way back in the back of the annex. Poor Mitsubishi!
Best of Show
Chitty Chitty MF’ing Bang Bang.
