The Candy Shop

It's been a crazy & long week at the day job, but being the the car fans/enthusiasts we like to think we are, I had to make time to go to the Austin Auto Show. Every year it comes through and it's always exciting to see the new showroom models and concepts the car companies have come out with. Of course I headed straight to the section with the most expensive cars on the floor and (like everyone else in there ) proceeded to day dream about what i looked like blasting down some windy mountain side in my $145k European import. But once reality set back in i made my way around and spotted some really cool cars. Amongst the best where the long awaited Chevy volt, the Cadillac CTS Coupe, the Corvette Stingray concept, and my personal favorite-an ALL black Audi R8. Audi had 1 of each class in all black lined up ( pretty cool to see) right next to the Maserati's.

Every company had some really great vehicles to show off but I must say that GM had the strongest showing. They have really made some progress in the past couple of years. Their designs & build quality are really stepping up to the competition. And being the "car snob" that I've been told i am, that means alot, haha.
It was like a day at the most expensive candy shop in the world. You step in wanting to walk out with everything, knowing you it's best if you leave with nothing, lol.
