2004 STi sold :(
Houston Car Show. Your thoughts?
I thought it was odd that the SRT-4 was at the back of there exhibit and that no what paid it the least bit attention. I wasn't avaible to fondle sot everyone just examined the R/T version.
A very impressive line-p of cars. There full-sized pickup makes use of what would otherwise serve as useless space on other trucks. The Maxima was faily interesting too, with the "sky view" roof
I LOVED it. Powerful stance. Impressive interior. Huge wheels. That thing was awsome in person.
Infiniti G35 Coupe:
sex on wheels.
Lots of room in front and back. The rear half of the car is just oo ugly. It' like they were about to make a wagon like back, like the M Coupe, but decided to stop a little short. However, I have nice expectation of it's price and performance.
Too bad the Mazda 6 MPS won't be in the US anytime soon. That is a lovely car. The one that we do get is just unimpressive.
Mazda Miata Turbo:
Very sweet. 257whp. I've always liked the late odel Miatas. This one was black with chrome rails, SSR wheels, and Wilwood brakes. Big thunbs up from me.
Definately had the sweetest concept cars.
Nothing special, but at least the WRC car was of the new body style.
There was a "street" Evo 7 and a red production Evolution. 271hp. This car looks very nice in person. I'm no fan of large spoilers, but this car, with it's mean and agressive looking front end, would look incomplete without it. Performance-feature-wise, I saw nothing special that a slightly modded WRX couldn't duplicate.
Jeep Willy's 2:
I like it, but acn you say Blind Spot City?
Very neat concept. The interior literally looks like folding chairs sitting on a wooden floor. The floor is completely flat, but not wood. However, this is PURELY conscept. They could never get it to pass safety standard. The are no B, or C-pillars, and the entire roof is retractable leather.
If Saturn make this and makes it with a low MSRP, it would be the ultimate chic car. They will sell like hot cakes. The blister-button controls were terrible. Otherwise, it was a cool lil' car.
You have got to see this!
300hp, 4Motion, able to drive through 23" of water, air suspension....

I'll stop on that note.

The srt4 is butt ugly... it looks far worse than the regular neon... the exhaust is rediculous (it takes 72 bends to make the Dual Look exhaust... looks like a useless restriction)...
Evo was nice
RX8 was nice
Lotus booth was Great
Old Vettes were awesome
Subaru was lacking...
Toyota had like 50 cars and zero interest...
The Zs were surrounded by morons...
The Suzuki Aereo Sedan is kewl! It looks like a 7/8 scale lancer, but cheaper, better equipped, and more horespower!!! I was suprised and impressed...
All in all, about as impressive as last year...
