The GS got great gas mileage! All this economy and 240 purebred ponies under the hood...how can you go wrong?

This was one of the coolest 6.5 diesel Silverados I've ever seen. Whenever he'd downshift, he'd pour a bunch of black smoke out of the stack.

With the XTS's roofline and small windows it won't ne getting my $50,000. The Sportwagon is really just a four door hatchback along the lines of the Audi Avant, a practical solution for those who want a sedan but need extra space. Great to see pictures of these cars though.

Acura ZDX. Without a doubt the most ugly, pointless car there. They hail it as a four door sports coupe, but it's so cramped in the back, that I could barely fit in there, and JD, at 6'5", had no chance.

I notice the Regal has a clutch pedal. When was the last Buick that has a manual transmission? I hope the manual GS sells better than the manual, non-V CTS.

I quess it is true, the guy who designed the front end of Scrooge Mac Duck's limousine also designed the front end of the Hyandai Equus! I especially like the hood ornament, which only needs to be topped with a $ sign to be perfect. As extreme devotees of designer labels as the Korean are, I don't see how they could have missed this opportunity.

The Acura ZDX carries a design theme from the "attractive but uncomfortable" (VW and Mercedes versions) to the extreem of "just plain ugly and unusable." I think Honda had better get its' West Coast Design Center folks off the weed and back to sobriety. The Japanese idea of ugly passing as "cute" doesn't work in the U.S. witness the "Bucky Beaver" grills critical across the Honda Corp car lines.

Acura ZDX. Without a doubt the most ugly, pointless car there. They hail it as a four door sports coupe, but it's so cramped in the back, that I could barely fit in there, and JD, at 6'5", had no chance.

The Equus is a really proper luxury car. I got to see it and sit in it at the LA auto show, and I was very much impressed. The logo in the steering wheel center reminds me of the Imperial's. Still, that '83 CDV Chad posted looks better to me than anything on the show floor.

BTW, love Chad's up-the-nose shot in the Acura.

Gizmo's Yellow button (train horns) rules.

Of the cars, the Maybach was my favorite. Even from a distance it just oozed luxury and comfort. I've always had expensive tastes (which really s***ks since I wasn't born rich). Although, I think my wife wants one of these -> http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b215/MacMuse/CAR/P2200705-b.jpg



I was surprised at the rear seat room of the DTS. I found the DTS quite (head) roomy in back while the STS had my neck folded over: http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b215/MacMuse/CAR/P2200701.jpg


I hope the XTS has similar space as the DTS, but the rear seat looked quite short. That gave the appearance of lots of open leg room, but I think it's misleading. We couldn't get in the XTS, it was on a rotating display with just a talker.

That was my first trip to the Auto Show, and I'd definitely like to make a return visit during a weekday when the crowds are down.

Am I mistaken, or is Jesda going off the deep end with the Saab thing? First he actually bought a Saab, then he has himself filmed with it with Abba singing "Dancing Queen" in the background. Then he posts pictures of Swedish antiquaria and Swedish meatballs and a supposedly Swedish chick. Now he has wrapped himself in in a Saab flag .... can claiming Ingrid Thulin (Google her if you don't know who she is) is his mother be far down this road!

I'd agree with the statement that the blonde from Portillo's had the best face, but was her ass as nice as the Fiat twins? I dunno, I didn't see her from behind. I'd still say that the big titted (NATURAL) blonde spectator at the auto show was best, but I couldn't snap a picture of her.

I saw this in Belvedere. I dunno what it is, but it looks like a factory being demolished, but the more I looked at it, the more it looked like an explosion.
