Pittsburgh Auto Show

I was at the Pittsburgh Auto Show today and saw the 2 Camaros. They had a Victory Red and the SIM 2SS with the Inferno Orange Interrior. It was an auto. They had the instrument lighting on. I saw the gauge lights and didn't see the ambient lighting. I walked around other cars and when I came back around I asked about the lighting. They said it worked and the young lady turned the instrument lighting on. You could see it, barely, maybe they had the level turned down. I was afraid that it was going to be bright and distracting, but it wasn't at all. I think that I will be happy with it now.

I have a couple pictures, but don't know how to host. I can e-mail them to someone if they have a picture host.
They didn't let anyone in these. Why do they let some, Toronto, sit in them and other shows not?

The ambient lighting was on as I posted in my Pittsburgh Auto Show review, however it was hard to see in the light. You had look over at the passenger door to see it.

Did you see the G8 GXP? It was stunning IMO.

I saw it at the DC show and walked away feeling the same way.

I was at the Pitt Auto Show as well. Believe me, it wasn't worth taking my camera out of my pocket. Nothing from any manufacturer blew my skirt up. If it weren't for the plastic interior, I'd just get myself a new Jeep. The only other cars I liked weren't very affordable.

But I agree totally, it is not to brite or distracting.

Speaking of plastic interior, the Jeep limited fake woodgrain sucked. It didn't even look anything like real wood. Contact paper with clearcoat over it.

We couldn't touch because the cars were hand built prototypes that cost
$155,000.00 to build, of course the $120,000 ZR1 you could climb all over, and of course the prototypes will be CRUSHED soon anyway (these were non-VIN cars).
