    Porsche..........Speedster..........throwback name to the 50's (356 ?) bathtub Speedster.

    Looks like fun and brings back fond memories of the old DC Auto Show downtown at the National Guard Armory (BIG !).

    By next Chicago I'll be 72 - maybe break loose and creak over there.............Glad y'all had fun and a good ol' boy time. Pictures are bitchin', Gary.

    I put the Buick into a ditch yesterday afternoon, stayed the night in a hotel, now I'm getting my power steering pump replaced, as the slide off the road popped the seal off the pump. If all goes well, I should be home by eight tonight, only to go shovel.

    Does it cost much to hire a Booth Bimbo to lean on?

    The opposite is now true -- its much better built and has a genuinely good interior, especially compared to past Durangos. The quality of paint and the body panel gaps are much, much better.

    Re: Chicago 2011 Meet Thread. Pics Included.

    The meet was awesome. It was great to meet everyone and get to hang out. I just wish it had lasted longer. Thank you again to Jesda for the help Friday night. I had to stop somewhere in north Indiana and buy a car charger that would actually charge my phone on the way home.

    There was a lot at the show that I didn't get pics of, but I still ended up with a ton. So, here's what's not duplicates and still interesting.

    I rode with Jesda and Jason in Ducky to the Auto Show. I was impressed that it never feels down on power and seems to be pretty responsive to throttle input. At least from the passenger seat anyway. I was able to get a couple of skyline shots from the interstate.





    The convention center is huge.


    We all met up at the Cadillac display. It was really good to meet Sal and Danielle even though they didn't hang out long. Thanks again for the shirt.
    Chad, you can have the Buick one for your room if I can have this one.


    Black Diamond Edition CTS-V Coupe.

    This DTS Platinum was beautiful.


    Suede headliner...

    Jesda found it interesting too.

    Roadtrip...



    They also had the CTS-V sedan, coupe, and wagon on display. They were a BIG hit in the metallic red. You couldn't get near them hardly, so this was about the only pic I could get of them.

    Coupe in silver.



    Black Diamond V Wagon. This color is incredible.

    I have to agree. Exhaust pipes belong on the outside as God intended, not in the center. Some things should just be left well enough alone.

    I think center exit exhaust systems look great on a lot of the italian exotics....Pagani...458 Italia, etc.

    I am liking the CTS-V wagon. Looks like you guys all had a great time and that's all that matters. Thank you all for sharing these pics as I don't have time to really know whats out there car-wise these days. There are definitely some great new models I would not otherwise know about and some that make me think wtf? Either way, thanks!
