Feb 14: Toronto Auto Show

Since I love cars, a blog on Valentine's Day is very appropriate, although I'll keep the chocolates and flowers for myself. This is the week all the car guys/gals in Toronto look forward to each year  -  the auto show comes to town. Eye candy extraordinaire along with the frustration of knowing we'll never be able to possess some of the cars that so pull at our emotions.

Toronto has an interesting show, although one has to keep in mind that this is not Detroit and most of the Detroit concepts make their way to Chicago's show not ours (maybe Toronto a year later). Nevertheless, since our show is a mix of future, current and past cars, it is more varied than most shows and worth the time. Here is a very small sampling of what should interest us this year.......


Yeah baby, this is the Jaguar C-X16 concept that's been making the show rounds recently, teasing us with the possibility of a production version in the near future. The problem? Jag has been showing various "inexpensive" sports cars for a few years and they still only sell the grand tourers. Great to look at though.

This next one from Acura has been confirmed for production and in case you want one, you'll have about 2-3 years to save up........

This shot from Detroit last month shows the next NSX. I love it, but to my eyes it looks a lot like the Lamborghini Aventador with its very sharp lines. Lots of character and if anything like the last one, lots of bang for your (not my unfortunately) buck.

Ok let's cool things down with a car that's important, but most importantly affordable.......


This is the 2013 Dodge Dart. Important because Chrysler Corp doesn't have anything (or anything good) in this very important category. Based on an Alfa Romeo platform, it should handle very well as long as they don't mess around with the suspension too much. Good looking little number.

And about the cars from the past........


The Triumph club is putting on a large display of past models (they'd have to be wouldn't they?), probably including a TR2 like the one in the pic  -  classic British racing green. Also on show will be winners from last year's various cruise nights  -  classics, hot rods and customs.

Oh one more thing......if you've been losing sleep wondering where to get a new Sham Wow (and who hasn't been), there is bound to be a fast talking sales guy ready sell you this "miracle" product. Even the Car Modeling Cat was getting excited, until I explained to her, that she's an indoor cat and there will be no shows in her future.

Hope you get to the show (don't go on weekends) and enjoy the eye candy (the cars, of course).

Until next time........

  15. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little
    more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images.

    Maybe you could space it out better?
