Below are some photos from the 2016 Sacramento International Auto Show. Nothing big happened (surprise), but it was a lot of fun.
2017 Shelby GT350
Ford Focus RS. I’ve heard the center bar was thickened because the intercooler did not allow the engine to get to operating temperatures during EPA cycles.
Ford Focus RS.
2017 Lincoln Continental
A not very good picture of the crazy seats in the 2017 Lincoln Continental
2017 Shelby GT350R Looking mean
Way, way meaner than the non-R
2017 Dodge Charger Hellcat. Brass Monkey wheels looking good.
Hellcat engines need no plastic engine covers. Very Refreshing.
2016 BMW i8. aka. The Future
Surprisingly wide ingress.
There were not only new cars. Vintage cars, such as this lovely 6-series, were abundant.
Custom cars like this Datsun 510 are tucked away as well.
Tucked into the Datsun is an early 90’s Mazda 13b Rotary engine.
No turbos on this Wankel, instead featuring twin-carbs side-slung, reminiscent of a pre-war Hot Rod.
Custom cars range from this 2000 NSX, fully built with a supercharger and lots of custom carbon. Lots.
All the way to this super fast, and way to furious, 2000-and-who-cares Scion xB with 5 screens, including a rear 40″ screen fed through a custom full-clear hatch.
Not everything is a winner. Winner status goes to who guesses what this started life as down in the comments!
Lovely Lux-o barges were also in attendance.
The Rolls-Royce Phantom (L) is perhaps a little bit higher than the new 2017 Bentley Bentayga SUV (R). Strange.
Beautiful Alfa-Romeo GTV
Such a great looking front. Sans-bumper may be better…
Does the newest Alfa to our shores live up to its Grand Papi
Always love seeing a Pantera.
Bond. James Bond. (And his Esprit)
I can’t be the only one to want a Typhoon/Syclone?
LeMons cars always class a place up
Corvair? Jaguar? Who cars, because Race car
There are so many more pictures that I am not able to upload. I highly recommend that you visit any manufacturer auto shows in your area. I not only saw a lot of cool cars, but was able to drive a BMW i3 and a Jeep Renegade, with over 30 other cars on offer to drive. Just be prepared to breathalyze!
Some stories will be coming up giving my impression on a few cars I saw. Stay tuned!
