Canadian International Autoshow through my Lens

Was over in Toronto for the show. Took a different aproach on taking photo's at the show, I guess you can tell by the pictures. Hope you like them.

Thanks! The show was actually shittier then ever! Big budget cuts and it really shows! Porsche didn't even attend this years show.

Oh and I did represent maxbimmer well! But I admit I was drooling over a couple of Benz's ahaha

Great pics! An auto show is a great place for fun angles and closeups, so it's great to see something beyond the usual full-on car pics. Good stuff!

I'd have to agree that the show was toned down (especially in the GM and Chrysler areas), but press day attendance seemed to be up a little among members of the mainstream press.

Although Porsche Ag didn't show up I heard Pfaff was going to be representing the brand anyways? So I take it there was no Porsche representation?

No Porsche at the show. They said, they'd rather spend money else where, and they have. They rented Mosport (I think this is the right track but I may be remembering wrong) for the WHOLE month of April, and they will be taking 600 potential buyers to have fun at the track.

There was a little section of Porsche, that we accidentaly saw going up the escalator. It was hidden away and they had about 6 cars. Over all the car show itself meh' kinda felt like i threw my money away. The new Hyundai looked pretty nice. Other than that Bimmers were nothing special this year. Nothing you haven't seen, i mean they didnt even have the new M5. Mercedes was nice tho, CLS 65 AMG made me drool.

I think you are talking about the PFAFF Tunings booth
