I haven’t been to the auto show for years, and I really enjoyed 2011 Chicago Auto Show2 at McCormick Place. According to news reports, there were over 1,000 cars on display, and honestly, they all looked good to me. Even ones I would never buy. It must have been the lights shining from all parts of the cars that drew me. Or the $40,000 plus price tags. Allow me to share a few of my favorites.
Marcie ~aka~ Shorty in BMW Boxter
While you can’t see the entire car, I look good in this BMW Boxter with a price tag of $52,000 which probably only include the wheels, heat and keys. After I add all the other accessories and toys, it will be an easy $65,000. Hopefully, that will include all the taxes and other insane fees. This convertible, two-seater coupe is definitely a keeper.
Another cool ride was the Cadillac Escalade. I don’t know why I like this vehicle, but it’s highly unlikely I would ever pay for one. I do know that they are good to look at with prices beginning at $60,000.
The Toyota 4Runner has always been one of my favorites. It was beckoning me to have a seat. I did. And I still want one.
Nissan Altimas and Maximas are REALLY nice. Well, the bodies of the cars, anyway. I didn’t have a chance to sit in them because people were swarming around these babies. What does that mean? They were some of the more popular vehicles hands down.
I could go on about the cars I liked but I think your stories would be better. So, did you go to the 2011 Chicago Auto Show? What were some of your favorite rides?
