Anyone going to the DC Auto Show?

I'm gonna check it out. I'm most likely going to go Thursday Jan 28 in the AM. If you're going, and you happen to be there the same time as me come say hello! If would be fun to hang w/ the Mid-Atlantic Cam5 family....

Also, we have passes available. Come by the showroom, and ask for a couple. Just don't say I put you up to it....

Not a good place to park your C5. Take the Metro.

Sidewinder is def correct in that statement - do not drive to the event - might come out with no wheels. Drive to a metro lot and take the subway in - for those out of towners - the guy/gal at the metro will know which stop to get off on and how much it will cost. My experience has shown them to be very helpful.

Change in plans for me. Will be going to Wintergreen for a little snowboarding mini vacation. Some buddies had it planned out but 1 of them can't make it. I was next on the list and don't want to pass up a day on the slopes when offered.Just found out at our union meeting this morning. Thanks for the heads up on parking and looking out for us out of towners. Very cool...

I use to like the Autoshows when all the concept cars came. Now with these shows you get last years stuff and the rest is just like one big car dealer.

I plan on going but I hope the whole show isn't hybrid this and electric that. The website sure looks like that right now. When you look up what concept cars will be there, there is a whopping two of them. Both Hybrids.

I think I just talked myself out of going.

Well I was there ever so briefly, for about 30 to 45 minutes. Like a doctor, I am on call, and was called into work.

I did take mad pictures, and this event is hands on. Aside from the Caddy Converj, Chevy Volt, Aveo RS, and the Chevy Cruze, and cars were open and the public is ok to sit inside pop the hood, trunks.... pics coming soon.

BTW, it was not at all crowded, and it's easy going there by Metro-Rail. If you have the time, go!

I'll begin w/ the show cars.

First and foremost, the Buick Regal GS show car. No plans to build it yet, but I hope they do, it was stunning, and the pics do it no justice. This is a 2.0-liter turbo that's expected to produce at least 255 horses and 295 pound-feet of tourque, routed through a six-speed manual to a Haldex all-wheel-drive system that includes an electronically controlled limited-slip rear differential.










If you were wondering on the color, it is Olympic White!

Cadillac Converj Show Car. (Although they announced Jan 10, 2010 that they will build this car.)











The Aveo RS Show Car.















More to follow....

Chevy Cruze (replacing Cobalt):















This year there are three Camaros, and all are open, unlike last year:



ZR1:








Yes, you're reading that right, $121K.

GS

I went today and had a blast. I highly encourage everyone to go. I do have to say though that the Chevy displays were lacking in my opinion. Ford seemed to have really pulled out all the stops. Full engine displays, heck they even had a Mustang laying on it's side so you could see the under-carriage, with key information posted everywhere to explain what was special about it. Displays that demonstrated exhaust sounds, instrument panel displays/gadgets. Really nice stuff. I loved the Chevy section, and the Corvette's were amazing. I wish they would have had the Camaro's on a big stand with lightning bolts, colored lasers, and flashing signs like Vegas that say, "the most awesome car in the world!" or something, but that's just me (probably most of you too). I couldn't help but watch people check out the 5th Gens though and say awesome stuff about it. I just wanted to raise my hand and shout, "I HAVE ONE!!!", but I held it in.

Anyway, check it out, brothers and sisters. It's definitely worth the trip. Don't miss it.

I agree with Jakpot. You could actually walk up close and peek in the 2011 Mustang's window. Last year at the car shows, the 2010 Camaro was behind a rope.

I was very disappointed to see that the Synergy Green Camaro, along with the Stingray Concept were both in Philadelphia, NOT in our Nation Capital's car show. What's the deal?

These pics don't look like any car show I've been to. The most recent was probably Phoenix and the displays were elaborate and eye catching. It looks like an indoor parking lot in these pics. Am I wrong?

Cute model though!

You are not wrong Rafsanjani. There doesn't seem to be much hype about being in DC for the autoshow so we typically don't get the dress up that other areas of the country get. If you want to see the dress up and hype you need to get away from here and go to places like NYC, Chicago, Detroit or one of the other big cities.

That model is cute, but she didn't know anything about the cars. A friend and I were asking her questions when she was in the Chrysler area and she couldn't answer anything. Then again, what do we really want her to know about cars....

"...like an indoor parking lot". Yep, that's exactly it, Rafsanjani. Just add carpet.
