    Tampa International Auto Show

    Went to the Tampa Auto Show yesterday. Here were some vehicles on display:

    GMC Acadia (very stylish and I love the new taillights)



    Cadillac ATS (I have to admit, it's not as exciting in person)


    Buick Encore (not bad looking in person)


    Ferraris (FF, 458, California)


    Ford Fusion (very clean in design)


    Chevrolet Impala (I heard one person behind me say it looks just like a Honda Accord)



    Lamborghinis (self explanatory)


    Lexus LFA (a huge hit with the crowd)


    Lincoln MKZ (I have to admit, it looks better than the Ford Fusion in person)





    McLarens (very cool)


    Mustang (why can't Chevy make cool taillights like this?)


    Porsche Boxster (very neat looking in person)


    Regal GS (my favorite Buick)


    Rolls Royce Silver Ghost (the perfect Rolls Royce)


    Hyundai Sonata taillight


    Sonic RS (not going to lie, very plain in person)



    Chevy Spark (huge hit at the Chevrolet display)


    Chevrolet Traverse (very clean looking in person)


    Cadillac XTS (Elvis would love this car)



    Camaro ZL1


    Corvette ZR1

    You mean you love the old taillights of the Saturn Outlook on the Acadia.

    Nice pics. I love the new Acadia's front end. And the ATS is a lot more exciting once you drive it.

    Only the shape is the same. Everything else is different.

    Thanks for the pics. I started to go to the autoshow here in Ft Worth this weekend but there are so many new models missing that I want to see. I decided to wait for the Dallas show in March.

    Besides the Chevrolet Spark, I don't know a single Chevy with a rear end that makes me say "wow, that rear end is kinda cool looking"

    Seriously, Chevrolet Cruze, Sonic, Malibu, Camaro, Impala, Equinox, Traverse, etc. All of them have a boring rear end and boring taillights.

    Chevy has long been known for boring rear end designs. I don't understand why they do this either. I guess Hyundai bought all the good designers!

    I was thinking about driving down there, but the Impala is the only thing I'm excited to see, and it will be out soon enough. I'll probably go down next year when the new trucks are on display.
    Get used to more.

    I was checking out the Chevy Spark and there's actually quite a bit of room in that thing. And I loved trying out the ChevyMyLink system. Very easy to use.

    Blue isn't a color who give justice to the 2014 Impala, black or red would had fit more better.

    Some people (me included) don't always take good pics of cars at auto shows. Yours are excellent. Thanks!
