Booth Babes of N.A.I.A.S.

This gallery contains 16 photos.

Call them company representatives, call them product specialists, but what most people call them by is “Auto Show Babes.”
No auto show is complete without them. They are about as significant to the auto show industry as gasoline is to the transportation industry. While exotic sportscars can draw a crowd on their own, it is typically the more mundane means of transportation that usually gets adorned with beautiful women. So typically a Kia or Dodge would get the prettiest models to cause attention to their boring vehicles. Continue reading

Audi R8 Spyder

This gallery contains 5 photos.

Audi stunned the world a few years back when it debut the R8 coupe. This stunning machine looked like more like a concept car than a production car. Its styling certainly got the attention of the public, who always had seen Audi as perhaps playing second fiddle to brands like Mercedes-Benz and BMW.

Ask any auto enthusiast as to what is in their mind the first ever production supercar, and they will likely tell you about the Mercedes-Benz 300SL (a.k.a. Gullwing) from 1953.

This gallery contains 9 photos.

When I was a kid if you’d asked me which company made the biggest production car, I would have said Cadillac. There might’ve been larger Buicks out there and possibly even a Lincoln or two stretched farther than one of the crested wreath brand’s Sixty Specials or Fleetwood 75s, but my guess is that Cadillac’s flagship sedans needed every cubic inch of their top-line 8.2-litre V8 just to get them going.

Exotic Gallery at the N.A.I.A.S

This gallery contains 5 photos.

No self-respecting auto show would be complete without exotic cars. Afterall, what is fun about going to a big auto show and all you see are boring cars like Toyota Camry’s and Kia Rondo’s. However, since the economy crashed, it has been the supercar industry that has felt most pain. Many exotic car brands have reported about orders getting cancelled and new customers aren’t just rolling in. Continue reading

Chrysler at the N.A.I.A.S.

This gallery contains 5 photos.

Last year, Chrysler made the type of headlines no car company ever wants to make. First there was news of over spending by their executives, right at the time when the company was applying for bailout money.
