Default Chicago Auto Show 2018

Anyone planning on going this year?

I didn't go last year, was thinking about this year.

We'll see if anything comes out this week at the Detroit show that would be worth seeing at the Chicago show

Doubt it. The only reason Ive gone past years is b/c we were there. Other than that, the last time I 100% had to go was when the GTR debuted and was on display.

It says you have to provide copies of your work, what do you do for that?

Just got back from the show. Decent show overall. Not too much different than past shows. It was nice to get my girl into a couple new cars and see what she likes. Overall, typical weekend turn out. Fuck tards jumping in front of you, obnoxious lines, insane prices on drinks, and ignorant parents letting their kids piss off serious shoppers.

Yup. I swear every year I won’t go back. Then my girl asks if we can go find something we can trade in for. And like every other year, I feel the urge to punch a small child or throw him off the top of the Jeep exhibit
