NAIAS (56K Users be patient)...

Went to the Detroit Auto Show today, and it was just amazing...better than the last couple that I've went to. Learned some new stuff there, and saw some pretty amazing things...I took 500+ pictures there, so I put them in groups of 20, and this way it will only take 3 posts to post them (because of the 9 picture/smilie limit)...

I got a bunch of brochures and posters, and putting them up before I go to bed...but there's only 2 posters that are actually worth putting up...
A bit about the cars...the black Hummer H2 is Travis Barker's (Blink 182)--Kind of blurry), and the Lamborghini Murcielago there, with the doors open is Kobe Bryant's

So if anyone is interested in a picture, and wants to know about it/have it at the full size, feel free to ask...Or if anyone wants any pictures of something that isn't there, or you can't find, just ask...I left a couple similar pictures...There's also a couple of videos that I'll put up either today or tomorrow...

Went through 6 batteries (2 Ni-Cad and 4 Alkaline if anyone cares lol) and somehow got the camera to hold 1900+ pictures on a 128mb memory stick

That should cover it, but if I remember anything else, I will tell you guys...

(They would have been up about half an hour ago, but they take forever to put up...So even people on cable/DSL connections it will take a while, because none of the pictures are under 1.5 megabytes ...But it's as small as I could get them)...

Enjoy...I know I did
EDIT: The pics are fcuking huge!!! I've decided to put up links to the pictures, but it still takes a while to view them...It should be 4 pictures high by 5 wide...

More pictures and videos coming most likely tomorrow afternoon, unless I'm up to putting the rest up tonight, but it takes like 20 minutes for one set of twenty pictures so probably not lol...Again, sorry about the size lol

Wherever there were models (at least the better looking ones...yes there was several ugly ones) there was a giant group of people...I thought I got some pictures of the models somewhere, but I'll look through it, and get back to you on that...

BTW yeah, I did just click like crazy, wherever I saw anything even slightly car related, I'd take a picture lol

Haha not bad, looks like you had a good time (except there were no smiles in any of them lol). I'll be going to the one in Toronto next month and be taking some pics also. That older GT40 in the last bunch of pics looks like the one they had in Toronto last year (my friend took a pic of it). Hopefully your not like some of the people I know, when they go to the shows they take things (shift knobs, dials, and things from boothes).

No, I don't steal stuff from the cars, even if I wanted to I couldn't...the knobs that can be taken off are lol, and then even if I could, I was with my dad, and he loves cars more than me, so he'd kill me

Here's the pictures of the models (only found two)



Speaking of knobs though, one knob really caught my eye, on the M3:
One of the shortest shifters I've ever seen...too bad it was automatic



Yeah, they show some cars more than once, like the exotics, most were around the auto show last year, but it never gets boring to look at them...alway discover something new...

Quality was pretty shitty for two reasons...
1. The camera setting was at the worst possible, but that accounts just for the blurry ones, and
2. I had to save it as a .gif and then a .png to make them as small as possible.

Most were like the actual pictures I posted, but also that was their actual size (usually they're 5 or 6 times bigger)

Would have been better, but my sister didn't let me use hers, which on the highest quality takes 600 pictures

What Star Wars plane? lol

Oh, that's a University made car, which runs on solar power


It was a 2,500 mile race, and Michigan won it it in like 55 hours or so, average speed was about 45 miles per hour...

Pretty small though lol
