Like two kids in a candy store

bugatti veyron, ferarri california, bently motor cars, McLaren P1, exotic cars, supercars, 2014 chicago auto show, cool automotive videosThat’s the best description of Mark and I at the 2014 Chicago Auto Show. We did lots of stories about the new cars and dream cars. When I was getting to reformat the SD card I found this one on exotics that Mark thought would look good in his garage, or mine, or yours. We all can wish, can’t we?

Quick, what is your favorite Corvette?

I know most of you will say the new one but in this blog entry you have to pick one year except that. 1953, the first year, or 63 split window, or a 1967 Corvette L88 Convertible. Just one of 20 produced during that year, this rare breed made history for its $3.2 million price tag at the Mecum Auction in Dallas recently, the highest price ever achieved for a Corvette at any auction! My favorite is the 63 split window just because it looks cool. I know they all do. One cool one was on display at the 2014 Chicago Auto Show. Split window looks with all kinds of new stuff produced by Lingenfelter Performance Engineering. Mark and I caught up with Ken Lingenfelter, the guy who came up with the idea for the ultimate dream machine. Check out the video.corvette-vid-screen-grab

At the Chicago Auto Show not only did Mark and I see the newest models offered by the chicago auto show, auto show concept cars, kia, kia neromanufactures, but also concepts, one of them the Kia Niro. Positioned as a new urban lifestyle concept that is set to become a possible future B-segment contender. The Niro is powered by a 1.6-litre T-GDi engine with hybrid electric drive. Butterfly doors open, of course not when we were there, into the roof panel and swing up high with low-set flush handles. It is one cool little car. Mark and I would have loved to have taken it home.
