Default CES 2008: Cars

Sure, the tech is great, but one of the coolest areas of CES was the North Hall, where all of the cars, car audio and babes were found. We found over fifty sweet rides through our travels and have pictures of each - everything from modest classics to the latest exotics.

You can view the entire pictorial here and discuss it here.

You are assuming you can afford the babes as well ;-)

Heh, car shows are great. I don't remember so many cars at the last CES, but it could have been that I bypassed the entire hall altogether. The same would have happened this year if I wasn't dropped off there by accident.

The great thing is that they don't just bring in the latest cars, but the classics as well. Mostly classic Chevy's - the El Camino was fantastic! As strange as it sounds, the most common car company there with brand-new models seemed to be Lamborghini. I think I recall seeing four Gallardos and two Murcielagos (a Superleggera from each).

Personally, the Morgan Aero 8 blew me away... what a stellar car. The Shelby GT-500 was another gorgeous model... the black with grey stripes is amazing.

We don't get many (worthwhile) car shows around here, so CES will be one of the few times in any given year that I'll be able to check one out. I definitely have plans to check out the same hall next year. I just hope there will be more differing high-end models. I love Lamborghinis as much as the next guy, but seeing other models would have been great. I assume half of it has to do with availability, so I guess it might be out of the question... and it's also why we saw a single Ferrari.

Hah, thanks. I wish the photos came out a little better... it's so difficult to get "great" photos in an area where the lighting is so... undesirable.

Is there good shows on the SPEED channel? I was thinking of subscribing, but never got around to it. As for Discovery, Boyd Coddington's show is fantastic, even if he is a serious hard-ass at times.
