Chicago Auto Show - Part II

I really don’t have a lot to say about these images. They’re really just pretty pictures of cars and displays, with a few observations of the crowd mixed in. Some of the more hardcore stuff. Some of these I filtered pretty heavily just to make them more dramatic.

Gearheads, enjoy.

These first couple of photos are of the beautiful Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Gullwing. Luscious, I guess, is how I would describe it. Obviously an instant classic.

Always a crowd pleaser, the venerable Audi R8 made quite an impression in a gold metalflake paintjob. Phonecams were de rigor.

Got to have something for the kiddies. Jeep brought little electric Charger models and the soggy yellow guy.

Yes, there are people who will stand looking at a motor for quite a long time. I get it.

Lots for the flannel shirt crowd and those who prefer a tux.

    I really enjoy watching the people at Auto Shows. For many, it seems to be an emotional experience.
