NY Auto Show

Posted in play by Greg on the April 7th, 2007

I’ve been looking forward to this show ever since I spotted the first ad for it on the subway. One of the biggest auto shows in the world, many concepts are unveiled here for the first time. Every manufacturer makes an impressive showing. Except, of course, Buick. They don’t have anything impressive. Jeep was there with a free ride through a constructed obstacle course of tree stumps, logs and huge inclines. Subaru had hydraulic rally simulators. Bentley had cars so classy you couldn’t get close enough to spit on. Hummer was burning a pile of logs to simulate their effect on the environment. Chevy had a Corvette suspended from the ceiling. BMW had free t-shirts. It was fun. See the pictures:

Toyota FT-HS | Will this replace the supra?  Wtih 400+ hybrid horsepower, I hope so

Who needs mirrors?  Cameras are way better.
Ford is trying hard….I’m not buying….
Lamborghini.  Greg says, “Dam, gull wing doors are cool.”  Naseem says, “Cars with those doors that go up look like spaceships”
Chevy Volt.  Electric.  Comes with power cord.
Shelby GT 500 Mustang
Aston Martin.  Which one? They all looks so similar….
WRX.  Im getting one of these when I leave NYC.  In STI trim, of course.

    The Chevy Volt had a power cord dangling from it. It had a regular three prong plug. Ostensibly you can plug it in at home.

    Wow. Beautiful stuff. I’m really digging that triple-exhuast on the Lexus.

    And how is it that George hasn’t commented yet?
