I made it to the CIAS show in Toronto yesterday. I haven’t been down to this show in a number of years. I was primarily interested in seeing the Classic Cars and the new concepts but I generally enjoy the whole show. While I still had a great time looking at the concepts as well as the new hybrids and electrics. The bulk of the show was a little bit of a disappointment but I’m sure everyone has heard my opinions about current auto designers and how none of them can create anything visually innovative anymore.
The Firebird/Camaro Showcase was extremely cool. Much of the area was a little dark and I wasn’t terribly pleased with the photos that I took there but it was nice to see some interesting cars amongst the cookie cutter shapes.
I have a number of other pictures of some really nice concepts and EV’s but let’s get started with the really nice stuff first.
