Chicago Auto Show Pics (Finally)

Hey folks! Finally got around to postprocessing my photos and putting them up on my Flickr! My focus this year was primarily detail shots, as I've taken plenty of the usual walkaround front/side/back/three-quarters in the past. So I forced myself to use the 50mm f/1.8 in some situations and I'm really happy with the results. Let me know what you guys think!

Finally get to see a 918 up close and personally! Apparently the local owner had named this car, which is awesome. Hopefully I'll see him/her at Supercar Saturdays this summer!

This kid was either throwing a tantrum or REALLY enjoyed laying on the cushy made-specifically-for-the-autoshow-and-available-nowhere-else carpet. Or he was throwing a tantrum about leaving the cushy carpet.

And then there was this. Alfa decided to be that kid from high school that shows up to the reunion with the hot supermodel(s) and bring 3 cars that are roughly worth more than the rest of the cars at the Autoshow combined. Most people just walked by or oogled the 4Cs, while the few of us that knew what these were (but didn't believe it yet) were still shoveling up the bits of our brains in the corner.

I honestly never thought I'd see one of these so soon in my lifetime. I honestly think this is one of the most beautiful cars ever made. 1 of 18 in existence, worth over $10 mil.

1932 P3 (left) came on the scene, won its debut race, and ended up taking home 6 major wins that season. Only 6 are known to exists - this one worth about $5 million. The 1951 Alfetta (right) is Juan Manuel Fangio, only three are known to exist - this one worth about $10 million.

She asked this lil' Jalop if he wanted to sit in one and his face lit up before I could bring the camera up to my eye level. Be honest, we'd all still make the same face and be just as excited.
