Mercedes Benz G Class SUV

For those who already have everything and want something different, you can get a Mercedes Benz Gold G class to set you apart from your pimpin friends.  It's a steal at only $150,000 CDN. And if junior wants his own, you can get him the minature version too.

Mercedes Benz Concept Coupe

Rumour has it that this Mercedes Coupe, which was unveiled in 2012 will be ready for production in the near future and rebadged as the CLA.  How it calls itself a coupe when it has four doors is beyond me, though.

Acura NSX Concept

We haven't seen an Acura NSX since 2005 and reports are that this Acura NSX concept will be a production model in 2014 and built in Ohio.   How would you like to have this exotic looking supercar in your garage?

Last year's model had a silver paint job and different rims.

Hot Wheels at the Auto Show

I saw quite a few people at this years show holding on to the Hot Wheels special edition Camaro.  Turns out they had a vending machine of sorts and if you tweeted about the Hot Wheels at the Auto Show they would give you a Hot Wheels camaro.  Some were lucky enought to be chosen at random to get the spectraflame model while others got the basic model.  Sadly, I don't have data plan on my phone and could not participate, so no free Hot Wheels for me.

The 2013 Toronto Auto Show

Well it must be February because it's time for the yearly Canadian Auto Show and someone's got to take the pictures. Instead of taking public transit, this year I decided to drive downtown to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre and even splurged on parking at the Convention Centre's indoor parking garage. In past years, we would park far away and walk to the MTCC through cold winds and snow to get to the show, just to save a few bucks. Parking closeby tjhis year meant that my wife and I could leave our winter coats in the car and I would have my hands free to snap pictures, while my wife could hang on to all the loot.

The show opens weekdays at 10:30 am and we got there at around eleven and the parking lot was about half full.  It was a few short steps from the parking garage to the ticket checkpoint entrance.  We decided to hit the south Convention centre first and do the north Convention hall in the afternoon.

Anyways, my pics are of those cars that caught my eye at the show.  So my apologies for not taking pictures of your regular day to day econoboxes. lets get on with the pics ...

Oh, if you want to find all of the cars from this year, simply  click on the 2013 label or use the search box and type in 2013.
