2013 Chicago Auto Show: 2 out of 105 Not Bad…

2013 Chicago Show McCormick Place

Last week I had the chance to check out the 2013 Chicago Auto Show.  It was my second time attending the event.

Four years ago I was unable to make it with my family and I missed out on the Transformer Bumblebee and Chevy Camaro display.  I would’ve really liked to see a “life-size” (I guess a cartoon character can be life-size) Autobot.  This picture is awesome, but I’m pretty sure it was more impressive in person!

So I’ve been hell bent on seeing something cool each year.

In 2012, I attended the North American International Auto Show, aka the Detroit Auto Show.  I thought the Motor City would have a bigger & better event, but I was sadly mistaken.

Although I’ve lived in Chicagoland all my life, I recently found out that when it comes to auto shows no one does it like Chicago. The Chicago Auto Show is the oldest and largest auto show in North America – 105 years and counting.

I’m not an auto enthusiast, but I like history and the classic car display at the 2013 Chicago Auto Show was like cruise night on steroids.

The classics were interesting to see, but when is a car more than a car?
When it’s prepared for a ZOMBIE ATTACK!
With all the noise about zombies lately, I think Hyundai got it right with it’s Zombie Survival Machine.

The concept cars are always cool, especially when they’re Hot Wheels.

Kids and adults alike could partake in a physics lesson type challenge to become the world’s best driver. Everyone got a souvenir photo and at least one Camaro Hot Wheel for participating.

Have you ever wondered what the garage of a Comcast executive looks like?

Seriously??

As for me, my taste in cars is a lot more practical.

If only I could I say the same about my taste in shoes.

After 1 million square feet, my dogs were killing me!

I’m Just Sayin’…(Damn!)


Have you ever been to the Chicago Auto Show?  Did you go this year?  
What’s your dream car?
