Some pics from the Detroit show

Not too much BMW content, but I thought I'd post some of my pics from the Detroit show. BMW's booth is all hybrids and diesels

Detroit has been chaste for the past few years. It's still no Tokyo, but there were some nice surprises:

LOL, thanks very much! Love the Detroit show! My camera is nothing special -- banged up Canon EOS 350D and two old utility lenses (Canon 18-55 and Sigma 28-70).

More coming in a sec...

In and around the show:

Rick Wagoner holds a cheerful scrum with some journos:


GM Styling Chief Ed Welburn:


Hangin' with Mr. Csere:


Jim Press confounds my autofocus:


Lamborghini boss Stephan Winkelmann:


"Hey Smitty, sup?"


Chinese manufacturers BYD and Brilliance erected booths that blocked most of the entrance to the GM area. Signs were necessary:


GM plowed a fleet of vehicles through its first press conference. Blink and you'll miss 'em!

GET IT OFF ME!!


Ahem:


If asked, "Which OEM served pulled pork sandwiches," most people probably wouldn't guess smart.


Not a single Asian on the Brilliance branding:


Noun / adjective / adjective. Brilliance should stick to cars.


Ford is now apparently partnered with the United Federation of Planets:




Breakfast, Mercedes-style:


Lunch, Mercedes-style:

The other Mercedes lunch offering:




Mitsubishi didn't show up, but their local dealers put together six cars and a desk. Somewhat sad:


Even sadder was the fact that their lone display kiosk had a CRT television:

Nice pictures, but you might want to resize them or post a link where they can view the full size pictures.

Also I want to mention. Food + women + cars, what else more do you need?

330DTM, I'm using an old 350D and some beater utility lenses (Canon 18-55 and Sigma 28-70).

Phuviano, good point. Hadn't thought about dialup users. Here's a link to my photostream (albums on the right): http://www.flickr.com/photos/33564034@N07/
