I like the wheels on the Denali.
The G8 GT is so nice, I love the taillights.
And show stoppers: Camaro, ZR1, Challenger, GT-R

It actually looks better in person. I thought so ever since seeing the prototype at last years show. It'* not too photogenic of a car.

The red one was sharp, too. As to putting more thought into the car, you have to remember, they're importing these from Australia, and trying to put as little money and R&D into them as possible.

The Shelby Mustang was right at the entrance on that side of the show, so it was crowded as hell. I couldn't even get a decent shot of it, but you could definitely walk up to it.

Friday late afternoon/early evening. Wanted to go earlier than that, but I had some unforeseen issues pop up Thursday that I had to take care of early Friday, so we were late. I never go on weekends. Forget getting anywhere near a car to photograph it, let alone sit in it.

All they said was it'* just a prototype they're experimenting with. It looked like there were clips for a hardtop to go into place over the front portion.
