      A few cell pics from the VIP night. I did not have enough time to get as many pics as I wanted.

      I'm thinking of driving up next weekend just to see the Chiron and AM-RB.

      Thanks for sharing! That Singer is one that I don't think I've seen before.

      Audi's stand could have just been one long shelf with different headlights and taillights on it. No cars. Because that's the only difference between their models.

      That's a long drive for two cars.

      It would be worth it. I have a friend in Toronto that I'd stay with so that's another reason to go.

      It is interesting that they have the Mazda CX-5 Diesel there. That will become a popular option in Canada.

      Curious as to why I keep seeing Singer's at the new International Auto Shows?


      Not complaining as they are beautiful, just wondering.

      Thanks. Alfa is in the South. I parked at the convention center. VIP free parking baby!

      The CX-5 is a RHD car. We are getting them in the fall IIRC. (I'll still believe it when it lands on our lot)

      More pics.

      I guess I just didn't realize how many aftermarket or car customization companies are at the new car auto shows. I used to go to the Detroit Auto Show every year when I was young and only remember concepts and production cars.


      I thought the trucks on snow tracks and Singer would be reserved for SEMA.

      I believe Pfaff facilitates Singer purchases for Canadians now?

      Yes sir. And it's going to be available for this summer from the fairly reasonable price of $63,000CDN. I might trade the Golf R in for one.

      I was just down in Toronto for work for a few days this week. Might head back down for the autoshow, depends how this weekend shakes down, if not maybe next weekend. The dopey crowds usually drive me nuts, same with driving in TO.

      Some decent pics, plus Jacques' car is there.
