2007 Denver Auto Show

1 post in this topic

Went to the auto show today... GM had none of their new concepts, and only two '08 models --a Malibu LTZ and Enclave-- (no '08 CTS, '08 G8) on display. The Camaro concept was there in red, looks great in red. The Malibu and Enclave looked really, really good. The G6 convertible looks better in person, neat in top-up hardtop mode. The G6 GXP sedan, on the other hand...giant ugly grilles.

Cadillac had some hotties talking up the cars.

Over at the Ford stand, the Lincoln MKR and Ford Interceptor were in attendance, along with a concept coupe (don't recall it's name, kind of like a modern Cobra Daytona? GR-S or something?). The '08 Focus 4dr was there, along with the Taurus and Taurus X, GT500 convertible, and some massive '08 Super Dutys.. The guy talking up the Taurus even said it looks like the Five Hundred. The Lincoln MKR and Interceptor looked great in person, much nicer than in pictures... I really liked the color of the MKR.

Over at Chrysler, the new Sebring sedan and ht convertible are painfully ugly, and having a sedan in Petty blue (very bright light blue) didn't help. But the Asian lady in the black leather dress talking up the Avenger made up for the car's so-so design.

Chrysler had a neat heritage display, with a massive two-tone '57 Imperial Southampton 4dr ht, a red '73 Challenger, a WWII Army Jeep, and something else.

The usual assortment of exotics were on hand---Aston DB9 coupe, DB9 convertible, V8 Vantage coupe, V8 Vantage convertible, RR Phantom, Bentley Continental GTS, Flying Spur, Ferrari 430, 3 Gallardos (2 Spyders), a Murcielago Spyder and coupe, and a couple Maserati Quattroportes.

It's always fun to mingle and hear what other people say at a car show...the Outlook, Sky, and Aura were drawing positive response for Saturn...I sat in all 3, very nice. I overheard a woman say 'Ewww..it's gross' about the interior of a 3dr Yaris, but her boyfriend/husband/whatever said 'No, it's a Toyota, it's cool'. Two college-age guys walking through the Acura stand said 'Acura is like Honda, but Japanese'.... ok..

There were some strange little electric cars including one called an 'iT' on display along with Smart cars, from Zap Motors, I think. One electric car I sat in was very tiny and primitive.

A fun couple of hours wandering around...
