Default NYC Auto Show

So since it was a bit windy in NYC today. I thought that it would be a good day to go to the Auto Show. I am not a big car guy anymore. So I was very selective on what I shot. Here are just a few.

Thanks Hards,

I think I have found the setting on the camera that works best for my lazy PP work. I have set the camera sharpness, color tone, saturation and contrast to where I like it, so all I have to do is some minor color adjustments. I get to still be lazy. Also posting at 900x720 helps prevent the board from eating up my shots.

I like the rolls, it is a big car in person. I actually really like the fiat 500. It was cute, and I have shifted gears. I seem to like fuel efficiency more the brut power. I look at allot of the green cars. And turbo diesel cars. I was looking at the new MB bluetec engine E class. Very nice. Now if they brought the 2.0 liter over on their C class. I would be very interested.

It will be here for 2011. I was talking to the factory rep girl. It is a very good selling car in Europe. And you can not beat 50+mpg

yea, i knew they sold well in europe. with that kind of gas mileage and the push for green cars, as well as the popularity of the mini over here, they may be on to a strong seller.

The mini cooper s on the next redo will go to 1.4l inline 3 with twin turbo pushing out 180hp.

If fiat bring the 500 with the 1.2l diesel to the states, expect 50+mpg. And I kinda like the looks of it, but I might get a mini as my next car. It is really fun to drive.
