Man everybody missed it, nopi was pretty cool. There were NO Bonnevilles in the show, but there were some nice domestics. The best attraction was the road courses they had up front. You had to sign your life away, but they were letting you drive 06 v6 6 speed Eclipses around a road course with a driving instructor riding shotgun. I had to wait for awhile but it was worth it, they said do whatever you want except for a big smoky burn out when you leave. I only did a little smoky burnout, but I kept seeing white smoke off the tires coming out of turns. They also had another road course to the side of that where you could drive a Cobalt SS, but everyone I talked to in line for the Eclipse said not to bother because they were real dicks, and would hardly let you go over 3k rpms. The instructors in the Eclipse kept egging you on to push the car harder. I guess thats the difference when GM put on one booth with their cars, and BFGoodrich put on a booth with loaned cars.
