For those of you who missed the show, or wants a recap. =D

I apologize for some shaky hand held footage, there was too many people, so I couldn't get some shots as well as I'd liked. But hopefully you guys enjoy none-the-less

I was impressed that Chevy let people sit in the ZR1, I was pretty stoked on that.

I noticed a woman reporter going around pointing out some styling cues of new models... Had a camera 'crew'... I think it might've been one of those independent car reviewers like auto123 and roadflytv etc. on youtube. If any of you happen to come across it post it up hahaha. Pretty sure I'm in the background and I wtfed.

Does anyone know what's the name of that booth...that sells car licence plates / frames / metal signs?

And if they operate a local store anywhere in the city?

It is the CSX replacement, and yet again a souped up Civic. Interior's not too shabby though, imo.

Saw it, it looks so..... bland. I was with the girlfriend, and she said she would not buy any of the new Acuras cause they look so cheap, might as well save the 5-10k and just buy a Civic.

show was really bad, half of surrey showed up, I swear all the cars lost over 50% value just from the kind of people who sat in them.
can see all those cars luxury or exotic cars that were there on the streets anyways.

Yah, we'll have to see how the ILX hold up when released. Such a short time for the CSX, I think theres a few nice jdm themed csx on RS.

The acura tsx aspec already had a tear in the driver seat bolster, the MDX driver door panel (speaker kick pod) was all scratched and torn while people exiting, and the worst was when the white benz sedan (forgot what model, should be S or E) next to the entrance...the right rear door plastic black trim piece broke off and stuck out on the side, ppl just kept opening/closing the door like nothing.

Told the rep, but he said ok, we will get it fixed

I did ask, I got a whole hearted "haha, move along son"

The worse was Ford when I asked to sit in the GT500, "Aren't you too young to try these cars? Theres a fiesta over there!"

I feel like I'm in Richmond Subaru all over again
