Beautiful, beautiful driving conditions on ...
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...
