    Primus and I went to the St. Louis Auto Show yesterday and snapped some pics. We tend to talk cars a bit here and there and thought it would be a good idea to start an auto enthusiast thread. We have a previous thread to post pics of your cars (which we intend to resurrect shortly) but consider this the spot to talk cars/trucks and share photos of whatever you like.



    How about the rest of you? Pics to share? Comments? Let's talk cars!

    Hey, I love cars. Does being obsessive about your own vehicle count as being an "enthusiast?"

    Awesome thread. Last weekend they had the annual Barrett Jackson Classic Car Auction in Arizona. 6 days of classic cars going on the block at a no reserve auctions, and it was all on the Speed Channel. Here's some shots of some of my favorite cars that sold.

    1965 Corvette Convertible - I love corvettes btw, and have this pic as my background.

    1935 Rolls Royce Phantom II

    1969 Shelby GT500 - This was actually owned by Carroll Shelby himself.

    Just so we're clear, this badass mustang had a glass top roof. Not a sunroof, a glass top. I just wish that door would have opened...

    Here is a closer-to-production shot of the 2010 Camaro. Those are *not* the final headlights. The headlights will look more like Bumblebee's headlights.

    And a shot from behind (note: this is most likely the V-6 and does not have the spoiler or any badging.)

    I am sorry, to me that red Camaro will be windcharger not cliffjumper.

    But yeah, it kind of makes me want to ebay my entire collection to get it.

    I've always liked sports cars but never spent much time doing anything other than looking at them. However since I got my RX-8 I've been spending a lot of time learning more about it and what I can do to make it even better. XD

    Btw, the new Camero is sexah!

    Nice Grand National. What's the green car in the 2nd shot? It looks familiar but I can't place it.

    Finally!

    God, I live between the axles. I have two cameras that I bought just for photographing cars and scenery. Most of what I have are Imports though. Here's a few I've snapped over the last year or so while traveling.


    Gorgeous '69 SS w/350 in Painter, Virginia.

    And a police car at a car show a year or so back. Now, several cities in KC have them.

    Digging the new Camaro and Charger police cruiser (in my city they use the '07 Chevy Impala, Ford Freestar and Crown Victoria as the mainstay police cars).

    New Camaro looks nice on the outside but the interior blows. They went way to retro inside.
