Back from the NY auto Show

And this thing was there....


I stood around it for 15 minutes waiting to find a Land Rover Rep to bitch/complain/smack...... I found it odd how they all seemed to stay 20' away from this display the ENTIRE TIME.... Every other car there was always someone coming up to you to ask "do you have any questions" its as if they knew nothing good was going to come from talking to people about this thing..


Yes - its as gay as it looks in person, smaller, weaker, more ridiculous


I bet Jeep Liberty owners might spring for it though



On a side note - there weren't many concept cars there at all so I guess kudos to Land Rover for putting one together. Only other ones were a Kia, Acura NSX and i think thats its.

Winner of the show (other than the million dollar exotics) - to me was the Jaguar R-S It was there in British racing green, and in the coupe it is simply TITS! I'll say it looks better than any of the Aston's!

Saw a couple of Electric cars, the FIsker was there, sales reps were douchebags and didn't know shit about the car.... still doesn't make sense to me, its an electric car with a 260hp engine hooked up only to a generator.....
