Chicago Auto Show Coverage

Shortly after New Year’s, I sit down with a few of my best friends and we begin planning the year’s calendar of car events and shows that we plan on attending. The first day we always plan is our annual trip down to the Chicago Auto Show in February. After some quick discussion, we decided that another mid-week trip down was preferred to minimize the crowd size. We all requested off work and got together on the morning of February 17th to head down for our third consecutive auto show trip.

In  addition to my self going, both Daniel and Brandon also went to get coverage for the website. Daniel even got credentialed to attend Media Day for Midwest Automotive!


The Chicago Auto Show is pretty similar from year to year, with the exception of a few concept cars and new models coming out. This year was no different, although a few specific models really caught my eye. The brand new NSX in it’s near production form was great to see, along with the TRD Camry that Toyota created for SEMA was also a very unique, cool little car that I was not expecting to catch my eye. The new Alpha Romeo’s,  the Focus RS, and the newer Miata also interested me quite a bit. Since you can read all about each of the cars at the show in detail everywhere online, we are going to keep the writing short and let you browse the photos.
