Last night, Angi Bruss and I taped a couple of segments at the OKC International Auto Show at the State Fairgrounds. Tanner Herriott manned the one’s and two’s. David Jones lurked in the background with witty remarks. Yes, we had a full crew on hand.
I love sports cars. I was surprised that the Auto Show had both the 2010 Camaro and Mustang. It also had the 2010 Hyundai Genesis couple. And the 2010 Nissan 370 Z. I won’t even get into the exotics, like the Nissan GTR.
Even Peter Hodges, president of the Metro Auto Dealers Assocation, expressed some surprised that the manufacturers delivered all of these top name cars for the show. Wednesday was the annual “VIP” event, where advertisers, sponsors and others get a sneak peek at the chrome and snack on finger foods.
In my opinion, the Camaro did not disappoint. It was my favorite car of the show. I’ve been reading reviews on Edmunds.com and had high expectations. The new Mustang wasn’t quite as cool as I’d hoped, but the strange gold/yellow/mustard/beer color had a lot to do with the “meh” factor. So did the base model wheels.
And of course the new Corvettes were amazing.
Grayson Cook did an excellent job editing this video, especially the fast musical montage at the beginning.
