These are all the pics I was able to take this weekend at the biggest car show so far! And if I may “humblebrag”, these are probably the best pictures I’ve ever taken of any cars at any show EVER. And I used the phone I gave up using for an iPhone 5(and it can’t even take photos this good). There’s something for everyone here so ENJOY! :)
The first photo was us meeting at 6:45AM at IHOP before we all left for the show.
Early cars arriving
My sexy car
The only two 944s there
The main exotics everyone circle-jerked around for the first hour or so of the show. Funny story actually, the 458, C63 AMG, and GTR are all owned by some young guy who owns an exotic dealership in Lansing. He had his “friend” try to park the 458 next to the Gallardo. He couldn’t put it in reverse, and almost sideswiped the Lambo because he couldn’t see out the back; we all had our phones out watching this epic fail, and yet no one caught a video of it. I would have loved to share that with you all. :p
They said it was a near close tie of which cars had more presence: STs, or WRXs
First one of either of this I’ve seen in person, both were stunningly beautiful!
Manual SVX(I’m guessing manual swap?)
Dat carbon fiber duck tail tho...
And then this badass piece of badassery showed up and one-upped every single car here; especially the exotics that everyone hasn’t already seen on the interwebs and the YouTube:
And this one was LS-swapped. I talked to the owner, he has the original engine and trans, but told me the LS was more user-friendly and driveable with the benefits of more power as well.
The nice fellow in this picture with his hands in his pockets is the guy in charge of the M1 Concourse(if you don’t know what that is, I strongly urge you to look it up!), and owns this awesome Turbo S. He, and the Countach owner restored some of my faith in humanity just by talking to him. He showed me that not all wealthy people are complete A-holes and he took the time to talk to me about cars, his past cars and just car enthusiasm in general. He’s also #60 on the list for the new GT and he’s on the list for the 488 GTB, not sure which one he wants yet though...
So how’s that for an awesome show! It was so massive in fact, that they had to turn some late arrivals away because they couldn’t fit anymore cars in the stadium lot without it getting outa hand; that’s how awesome! No doubt the turnout will be just as great or even better next year!
Also, how was my “photography”?
