    Got great gas mileage on the way down. It turned out to be 28.3 overall.


    Beautiful, beautiful driving conditions on Friday. It was sunny and 22* when I left, and when I got to Chicago, it was sunny and like 55*.

    Stopped at the Belvedere Oasis for Gas & Wash.


    360 Modena. Nice!


    Got to the hotel, couldn't check in until Gary did, so I went to the Ferrari dealer to kill time.


    Indoor showroom.


    Service department. There is an F40 back there.


    '65 Ferrari 275GTB


    '74 Maserati Bora. I really liked this!


    Testarossa


    458 Italia



    612 Scagletti


    California.

    458 Italia brochure that I bought.


    1965 Aston Martin DB5. The original Bond car.


    The hotel was awesome. Clean, newer building, right off the major highway that I took from Minneapolis. Here's the nice atrium/lobby.


    Marvin's awesome XLR-V. 575hp at the wheels. He let us all drive it after dinner, and I've gotta say, that power is breathtaking.


    Ducky and the GS.



    Austin's gorgeous and immaculate (for 138k miles) '99 Eldorado Touring Coupe.


    James drove Gary and I to the auto show in his rental 300 Touring.


    Sears Tower looks good from 294.


    I found the world's nicest Astro. Factory three tone paint, optional alloy wheels, LT package and NO RUST. This must have been like a 1991-94.


    Camaro Z28 Indianapolis Pace cars. 1969 and '11.


    CTS-V "Black Diamond" Coupe. GORGEOUS! Love love love that shade of paint.


    Black Diamond Wagon CTS-V Wagon.


    LS9.


    SLS

    Maybach 57s


    2012 CLS


    Regal GS. Production looks the same as concept from last year.




    I want this for my bedroom.


    Interior of the Chevy Sonic.


    Camaro convertible.


    I like the Volt's center console.


    New 9-5. Not terribly impressed. The car looks nice, but it lacks the typical wood trim of the Saabs.



    LOVE the new A8. The big one piece grill reminds me of a cowcatcher from a steam train.




    The Audi R8 might be one of the best looking supercars ever.

    Some may think it odd to take a pic of that Astro van but it was IMPRESSIVELY clean. I was freaking out over it...

    Equus. I was really impressed with this car. Great build quality, some of the best leather I sat in of any car at the show (better than Cadillac, BMW, Lexus) and a nice looking design. IMO this is better looking than the 7 Series, LS and perhaps the S Class. It may not be the most stylistic car out there, but I like it's rather bland, square design. It looks like luxury cars did in the '90s and I love that look.






    I love the XJ. Probably my favorite car in that class. Love the neoclassical styling inside & out.


    INLAID WOOD TRIM!



    Smurf blue Porsche Speedster. $225,000. I don't know anything about the Speedster. Can anyone explain?


    Austin & Jesda were impressed with the Optima.

    274hp 2.0 GDI Turbo!!! More horsepower than V6 Altima, Accord, Camry...


    Mazda brought a couple of '90 (first year) Miatas. Not a lot of change in 21 years.

    Love that early '90s Mazda logo. Brings back memories of dad's '91 626.


    Austin and I sat in the '11 Miata. I liked sitting in it...the low beltline & windshield and taut chassis makes for a heck of a fun driving car. I really wanna get behind the wheel of one now.

    I had a good time, primarily with JimmyH and his wife Michelle at the show. But I'm realizing that we missed a bit of cars. I never saw Mercedes, the black diamond Vagon, some of the Chevrolets or the Saabs. Also, Mazda, Volvo and Maybach...

    Re: Chicago 2011 Meet Thread. Pics Included.

    I really really like the new Charger R/T. Much, much nicer inside than before....like vastly improved, lol. The exterior looks a lot better too, and I actually do like the "pig nose".





    Durango is much improved as well. Lower, longer...better materials inside.




    300 was vastly better as well. This is the Limited, same level as the '10 that James had as a rental, and it was much much nicer overall.





    Here's the SRT-8.


    Fiat 500. Very nice for it's class. Lots of personality (even if it doesn't have a racing pedigree *douche*), lots of options to personalize with and good build quality.

    A8 L...is that a longer wheelbase version or something?



    Gotta say the Durango looks more like a toy than a truck now, plastic and cheap. Not to mention the back looks like a Toyota.

    That seems to be the new formula today. Across the board, most of the current models look more like plastic toys than their predecessors, just bigger.

    Ram Laramie Longhorn. This is like the modern day version of the "Gentleman Jim" Sierra. Elegant, top of the line luxurious hedonistic masculinity.





    The Ram girl is really hot. Just my type....short, black haired, olive skinned.


    Jesda wasn't impressed with the Smart. Nor was I.



    Sears Tower at night. Gorgeous.




    That's all I've got. Looking forward to seeing everyone else's!
