Toronto Auto Show

I spent Saturday at the Canadian International Auto Show. I took a bunch of pictures, too.

As much as I like the Buffalo Auto Show, the one in Toronto is just unbelievable in comparison. Not only is it far, far larger but the variety and the number of marques is more impressive. The Buffalo show experience could be replicated with a drive down Southwestern Boulevard – Ford, GM, Honda, Chrysler, Toyota. Toronto gets Lamborghini, Ferrari, Maserati, Tesla and a bunch of other stuff that I will never, ever see in the wild.

Plus, they always do a historic section. This year was a tribute to Carroll Shelby, and that’s what most of the pictures are from. Wow.

    Think you should get the scooter for when you are to tired to ride your bike, or need to make a trip out to Elma.

    I did the g-ville auto show about a month and a half ago, and they had some of the exotic makes there, too, plus a historic section and customs. But mostly, yeah, I felt like I could have driven down Pleasantburg Drive (where most of the car showrooms are in Greeenville) and seen the same thing.

    Wish we’d had the CS tribute. Wow indeed.

    My favorite thing about the Shelby display was that almost everything in there was an original, one-of-a-kind build.

    “This is CSX2002, the first Shelby Cobra. Carroll Shelby built and drove this himself and won a jillion races in a row. Estimated value: $4.5 million.”
