2009 Toronto Auto Show

Wasn't really sure where to put this; Ontario seemed the most logical. The place was a zoo, and there wasn't really a whole lot of stuff that made you go "wow!". I guess that's the embattled economy at work. Got a couple of interesting shots at the Ford booth:

This was an interesting display:

Nice shots. I had planned on heading down there myself today but it didn't pan out. Going to try and get down there one day this week though.

Went down there Friday night. Agreed there was nothing that was WOW, but there was some cool rides.

The interesting thing I found with the Ranger was that from all accounts it was just a standard sport package, 4x2 S/C. The sticker that accompanied the truck made no mention of the stripe package or the hood scoop; and yes it was fake - the "screen" where the intake would be was just a sticker.
I should have opened the hood to check, but I'm pretty sure it was just on with 3M tape.
I also thought the Raptor was a pretty nice looking package, but compared to most of the other vehicles it didn't seem like it was cleaned up to auto show standards; it really looked like they'd just pushed it in off the lot and dusted it. The undercarriage wasn't dressed p at all.

Nice Pic's. Not to keen on the Raptor's wheels but I do like the grill!
