Scenes from the Dallas Auto Show
Hey Chrysler, lookin' good!
Just in time for the recession, the Dallas Auto Show revs its engines till Sunday, filling the Dallas Convention Center with a bunch of cars that nobody will ever buy. But that won't stop us from staring, glassy-eyed, like children with the JC Penney Christmas catalog.
I visited yesterday Thursday afternoon, and the crowds were thin -- but I did notice the flannel-shirted middle-class and a few retirees scrutinizing the pint-sized Japanese and European imports while passing on the latest round of gas-hogs from GM. (Look, another Camaro!)
There was also an emphasis on eco-friendliness. My inner cynic tells me it's probably greenwashing, so it surprised me to see Chrysler showing off a gas-electric hybrid. Dodge presenters, meanwhile, kept talking about power and performance. Honestly, I'd be happy if they ever made a truck with a transmission that didn't fall apart under the strain of hauling potting soil. OK, rant over. On to the eye candy.
