SF Auto Show Pics - Hi Speed Recommended!

Hello all. Just thought I'd share some of the pictures I took today at the SF International Auto Show. Hotfocus did this last year but I guess he didn't go this year so I'm taking up the slack. Lots of cars to see there. Some old, some new, some concepts, some race cars. It was fun! The one car I really wanted to see was the new Mustang, they had 2 or 3 there but the crowd around them was huge so I just gave up. If that's any indicator of the car's popularity I think Ford has a winner on their hands with that car! If you've never been you should go, it's mostly new cars but also small exhibits of race cars, exotics, and specialty cars, all spread out over three exhibition halls.

The new GT:





The old GT:



The McLaren SLR:



The Carrera GT:



The Cadillac Sixteen Concept:



The hot Porsches:





The Pontiac Solstice:



The Lexus "IS430" project:



The Drift Car:



The Oldie but a Goodie:



The View on the Way Home:

First one's my new wallpaper...

Awesome pictures, looks like fun!

The IAS comes to Providence, but it was noticeably smaller last year. They didn't even have the new Mustang and it was taking up a smaller portion of the venue. Hope they upgrade it back to normal this year...

Thanks everybody! I had a good time. You should have heard the lame lines some guys were giving the spokesmodel in the second picture about the GT - "so I guess no one probably comes here with a credit card in hand ready to buy one of those huh?"

Lil PZEV do you mean the picture I took is your desktop or just that your current desktop is also a GT?

Awesome job on the pics...I learned my lesson from last year to never go on the weekends. The Carrera GT is just way too good looking.

Haha I know! The crowds were insane - technically it wasn't even a weekend yet, we went on Friday. My dad's cell phone kept ringing off the hook with calls from people who didn't realize he had taken the day off work.

Oh I meant the one you took is now my desktop picture... such a sweet car. That poor spokesmodel, I can only imagine what she had to put up with

And on a second scroll-through I just noticed the exhaust on that red Porsche, it's pretty cool the way the pipes are kinda welded together like that.

Uh, okay... I think there's a few people out there in cyberspace who might take issue with the whole "keeping cool" thing. There's a couple people that I was less than civil to. But thank you all the same!

Lil PZEV how is that your desktop? Isn't the picture way too small? Oh and BTW I liked the little "welded" look of the Porsche exhaust too, that's why I tried to get an angle that showed that feature off.
