Just returned from Auto Show

Yep , I knew it ,and sure enough the Chinese are building it.
BYD[build your dreams] did not have a price on it, so with all my charm I did some digging. THEY HAVE NO PLANS TO BRING IT TO THE STATES....Ummmm,unless it becomes popular of course. Six thousand American dollars...Its The fO Sports.
56 miles per gallon.curb weight 1918lbs
We sat in it, my son and I, ohhh, its cheap alright. The first thing my son said was." I don't think I would want to get in a crash in this."

NOO, THEY WANT TO PUSH THIER ELECTRIC PLUG INS.aFTER ALL THEY MAKE BATTERIES.
They found Detroit, "shabby" and "blue". I was amazed by this vocabulary coming out of China.
In both our top five lists; The Ford SVT truck...nothing came close. THE Nuremburg Viper...I feel so sorry for the designers at Chrysler, they deserve a more.

Special mention : McClaren Mercedes..it's an insane Silver Bullet train.

Idk either, sounds like he experienced some chines car thats really light weight and gets 56 miles per gallon which imo is not great considering how much it weights.....oh and it also sounds like its something you'd buy at toys r us and would get annihilated on the real road.

In Detroit now. Just went to the auto show today. Great show, despite the absence of Ferrari, Porsche, Nissan, Infinity, Rolls-Royce, Land Rover, Mitsubishi, Suzuki, etc...

Chefster's talking about a Chinese auto maker by the name of BYD (http://www.byd.com/). And F0 is their smallest car: http://www.byd.com/showroom.php?car=f0. Judge for yourself.

A representative of BYD at the show told me that they plan to enter US market in 2011.

I'm sure people laughed when the Japanese and Korean auto makers first entered US. Look who's laughing now. People now are willing to pay a premium to be a proud Lexus/Infinity/Acura owner...

Unsafe garbage. Have you guys seen how bad the Chinese automarket holds up in crash safety tests (find them on youtube or google)?? They all fail. As a matter of fact, crush them all up now to save some lives and use them all to build a gi-normous FAILBOAT.
