You know your car is almost paid off when you get free tickets in the mail from them for the Charlotte International Auto Show.

Free tickets - yay!

 

I am in no way a car enthusiast. But I do like cars. So it was fun to see a lot of the cars from the past. Here are some of my favorites.

We'll start with some of the classics. There were many of theme here so I'll just include a few favorites.

Christmas isn't that far away...

although I wouldn't mind this either.

In the middle they had the history of the Corvette but it was barricaded off making it hard to see. Here's where it began...

and where it is today...

I have always loved the BelAir fins.

img_008.JPG.fae7ea18032fd63fa614cc268813c2b7.JPG

This was my top choice from the vintage car area.

 

Moving on to the actual show...

Here's the star of the show, a Ferrari 458 Italia. For the low price of 0,000 this car can be yours.

I have always been particularly fond of the sleek styling of a Maserati.

img_011.JPG.9a5d22d030e0a95632023451dcfd7175.JPG

Once I saw the Morgans I fell in love...

...

img_013.JPG.7cd2a10e538b3eb816746b88ecbabbf5.JPG

but at ,000 there is no way my wife would say yes. I could probably talk her into K. What's that I spy in the right edge of the picture?

img_014.JPG.a32516ce3b93a1b656f723fe4d86c8fb.JPG

this! I could have tried to win it but didn't want to deal with the dozens of phone calls putting my name in the box would have generated.

img_015.JPG.af5c8fe4fd2a657a1328d2ea1a1851f6.JPG

I almost had one of these 2 years ago...my vote was Genesis, my wife's vote Avalon. Yep, you guessed it... I really like what they continue to do with this car.

img_016.JPG.07ecd59aad63a435e48c332d923b7ffe.JPG

This can't be for the engine enthusiasts because you can hardly see any part of the engine anymore.

img_017.JPG.19c4854a095d6262b769a49cba2f1f00.JPG

BMWs are common and popular around Charlotte since there is a plant about an hour from here.

img_018.JPG.3abb2e765085866688ee00d8ee7c5b4f.JPG

I like the look of this BMW.

Next we move on to GM.

She'll be happy to tell you everything you ever wanted to know about the Yukon XL

img_020.JPG.ae7bb1f09e39d4916a5cd680b8c21cb9.JPG

Look what was hiding over here...

img_021.JPG.6444ae42e691858d9a63ad54e83f550d.JPG

Lots of people were drooling over the new Corvette.

img_022.JPG.b251aa0e4d88d4013a005baa7814421d.JPG

I would personally prefer this.

img_023.JPG.c83d34537f97ae21d7a73ed9dfd95b52.JPG

I like the look of one of the Jaguar sedans.

img_024.JPG.b9e0564e6c4aa261cf7e1c80cdfe9334.JPG

although I'd prefer this one.

img_025.JPG.631d636bdc6cf85c7243ee86959a57d5.JPG

Moving on to VW, I like the accent color on the front of this car.

The new beetle sporting a more retro paint job (and sport stripe down the side)

img_027.JPG.0855f4647809245294002af0fe721110.JPG

This was my choice of the show - a Porsche sedan. My wife said no to the K. Actually she said 'not with my money' which means NO since it's essentially all her money as we have all learned in one way or another...

img_028.JPG.676fd9968316ed5ab0b6c7e0b47bda06.JPG

For some reason I continue to like the Range Rover despite it's boxy appearance and lack of any exterior body styling.

img_029.JPG.ef62ce2e8b52f8b5c35b5341e7c06649.JPG

In 8 years we might have this...the used 2014 model that is 8 years old.

img_030.JPG.25d5569007a04d1d34b2f80316bc13e8.JPG

Nissan's 2014 370Z.

img_031.JPG.be83b65361194af48cd00b1c7b35c42f.JPG

what the...

img_032.JPG.1af8e78530c0a86eed311670279b8898.JPG

Now I would take one of these any day...

img_033.JPG.af36e772af92b28439aa5e3c5588f5b4.JPG

but I'll probably end up getting something like this instead.

img_034.JPG.8f6aaa00f190dc9a753489e44fb86e18.JPG

or even more likely something like this.

 

We had a good time at the auto show although we decided not to move forward with a new vehicle this year. (I was already told that *before* the show) I hope you enjoyed tagging along!
