Heh - I originally posted "2005" in the subject - I'm an idiot!
After going to Chicago's auto show last year, I knew I was in for a disappointment at this year's KC show. I could count the non-production models on one hand... easily. Nevertheless, I took some pictures.
Evo MR vs. WRX STi... which do you like?
How about the Pontiac Solstice vs. the Saturn Sky? I know, same car, but actually I like the Saturn version a bit better. If for nothing else, the simple fact that they now have a decent car in their lineup.
The Camaro concept was definitely the highlight of the show.
The new Z06 was pretty cool too.
The XLR-V is way too expensive, but still a badass car.
Dodge's only concept, the Razor.
The Lexus SC430 finally gets less crappy rims. They're still not all that good.
This is supposedly a fast Hyundai Tiburon.
VW's new GTI
The BMW M5 looks awesome in black.
BMW M3 - can't wait for the new one.
Jaguar's new XK - not much changed from the concept I saw last year in Chicago, so basically it still looks like a (watered down) Aston Martin to me. Not a bad thing necessarily.
Porsche 911 Carrera
Porsche Cayman S - I love this car.
MB SLK55 AMG
A pimp 300C
Nissan 350Z Roadster
Honda S2000 - needs a redesign
Shelby GR1 - I saw this in Chicago last year, but they had these blue lights shining down on it. It looks much better in natural (err, flourescent) light.
You'll notice the general absence of people at the show. It gets a lot busier. If you're a picture taker going to an auto show, I suggest going on a Sunday at opening time before the church crowd piles in and trashes all the cars.
