Default Indianapolis Auto Show 2008! *PICS!!!* Not 56K-friendly!

Here'* the link to the event'* site:
http://www.indyautoshow.com/
It'* from December 27th until January 1st. Here'* another link:

If you see a brand here and suspect the car would be there, let me know, and I'll see if I can go back and get some pictures. Also, some of these pictures came out pretty strange, and I had to switch to another digital camera because I ran out of memory on the first, and the pics throughout this get pretty bad.

One thing that really upset me about this is that they did not have the G8! I asked about that, and it was just not there! They also didn't have the Grand Prix!!! That'* horrible! I did not get pictures of any Corvettes, Camaros, or the like. Sorry. I'll go back and cover those properly.

All right! I have 188 pictures to show!

First, every single GM car had Dexcool in it!

This thing is a bunch of shielded wires & hydraulics, and the entire base is a bunch of computers. Some tech guy went in there later as you can see in the pics, but this guy is totally self-operated to take questions from the public (about Ford cars), point to knowledgeable staff members (Ford guys), and joke with the public. It'* cool.

http://i106.photobucket.com/albums/m...8/PICT0200.jpg

I asked a girl that was helping out at the Ford display if I could give that robot a shotgun and send him back in time. She looked at me really strangely and became concerned about why I'd want to give a gun to a robot. I said, "Never mind. It'* a Terminator joke." She nodded approvingly and then assisted someone else. I refuse to stand down! It'* a good joke!

They don't allow you to sit in some cars. This is the brand new Nissan GT-R. Unlike the Skyline, it'll be sold here, and it has a V6 instead of an I6. I used the zoom feature and weird camera angles to get "the scoop."

No love for the Element? Weird as it may seem, it'* one of my most-liked vehicles on the road. Too pricey for my liking though.

That power steering pump looks identical to the one in my Civic.

I'm glad you like the pictures. I've actually got 3 more! These were taken by Chevrolet representatives and put on the Chevy site under some discombobulated URL. However, I've uploaded them to Photobucket for your viewing pleasure!
