Default 2005 Canadian International Autoshow (earlybird pics!)

The show doesn't open until tomorrow (which is Feb. 18 ). Long story short - I was there today, on media day. Of 219 pics that I took (<3 256MB memory in the cam, I used it *all* up - perhaps I should get more), here are 30 that I picked out, in an open directory:


http://repins.lesraystudio.com/autoshow05


Of note: Infiniti M45, Nismo 350Z (drool++), a couple new Mustang shots, some Caddilac stuff (STS-V, and the new DTS)

Pardon some of the noise in the images - I had to crank up the ISO setting a bit in order not to use the flash in the pics. Tradeoff. You'd probably notice this noise much more in the full-size, uncompressed pics.

Full size (2048x1536) versions available upon request, if you want to see other cars, just holler too, I might have it.


Not a single Bonneville in sight at the show. Nothing. Some GP'* (as seen in the pics, with the 5.3L), a while lot of Pursuits and G6'*... I don't recall a Bonneville on display last year either, but there WAS a GXP used for the stage shows...

Enjoy

We still are, as far as I know.




GM is stationed this year in the South building, as with Mercedes-Benz, Lexus/Toyota, Subaru, and others, off the top of my head.
