Default Chicago Auto Show

Well Sunday I went to the Chicago Auto Show. Cost me $11 for tickets and $19 to park. All in all, not worth it. The cars were boring, nothing really all that special or exciting there. Yeah there were some "neat" things, but nothing really stood out. When asking the Honda rep what will be replacing the S2000 that is no longer in production she responded with "nothing". Toyota doesn't have any sort of sports car either. Shitty economy I guess. At least Nissan had the GT-R. Mazda has a pretty good line up as usual.

Well anyways here are the pictures(~110):

(DISCLAIMER: I am not a professional of any kind and it was crowded, sorry if the pictures kinda suck.)

Also will be updating as I upload so not all will be up at first.






































































lol wheel size times horsepower = how awesome your car is.








thanks ford

Default They should have had this at the show

Toyota dose have a few special things in the works. This rear wheel drive, four cylinder boxer engine, 2.0L car is possibly the new Celica for 2012. It should have 200-250hp and a six speed manual according to the nmagazines. It is code named FT-86 as an homage to the AE86's RWD popularity. And they are aiming for an inexpensive price point. Yes it is being co-developed with Subaru, so expect a turbo version.
