One of My Favorite Quotes...

“The Master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both.”

2010 San Diego International Auto Show

It’s been awhile since I’ve gone to the San Diego International Auto Show or any car show in fact. I would say, a few years back. I used to make this a tradition of some sort to begin the New Year and check out some cool rides to add to my dream list when I win the lotto. Since it’s been awhile, we decided to go that Saturday to kill some time and make the start of this New Year more productive and importantly more fun…

As usual, we started from one end and work or way towards the other. As luck would have it, the end we started on had the more exotic cars on display. Cars that most of us can only dream of or see while driving through more prominent communities like La Jolla, Rancho Santa Fe, Beverly Hills, etc. But not me, I hope to have one some time and will continue to grind to make it happen… more photos here.

One of the best things about attending the San Diego International Auto Show is the ability to view cars that you’re interested in without the annoying car salesmen/women. Even ones that you’re not interested in or out of your price range. But these exotics were roped off to the public. And I can say for good measure as you will see that people in general aren’t really careful with the cars they check out… more photos here.

There’s one car that really caught my attention. And that car is the Camaro! I probably took more flicks of this model than anything else. And I’m not exactly a Camaro fan! I never really liked it in the past and now (stock form), but when seeing the potential of the vehicle that others have done to it, I’m really digging it. And that’s more so than fixed up Mustangs… I still wouldn’t but one, but boy are they a head turner. More photos here.

The last time I’ve been to the San Diego International Auto Show, they mainly showed new cars and exotics. This show had a bit of everything. It’s a welcome change and really brought back memories of going to Lowrider and Import car shows in the 90’s that I always went to when I was younger. Makes me want to go check some out now to see what the new generations of car enthusiasts are doing.

Some of my favorite cars that I saw at the show were the Aston Martins and the satin grey finished paint job of the BMW E92 M3. Love that paint job and would love to do that to my BMW some day. I just don’t want to deal with the maintenance of it… more photos here.

All in all, I had a ton of fun. We watched the Jeep exhibit and it doing its thing on the sample trail. Amazing what it can do. It’s sad to see that it’s only the workers driving it and not the customers. Somebody must have screwed up for them sometime ago not to hand over the key to test out. Killed a couple of hours and fortunately it wasn’t that busy when we got there. As we were finishing up, it was starting to pick up.

It’s also sad to see that not all car manufactures showed up. And a couple of the major car manufactures being Mercedes and Porsche. I really wanted to check out the new models that they had coming out since I was interested in buying one. Oh well, maybe they’ll show up next year…

These are just a sample of flicks that I took on the fly. I didn’t plan on taking that much photos and just wanted to enjoy the moment. Only took photos of things that caught my eye and what others wanted me to take. Other images are available on my other site on LapadaGallery.com and the direct link to the photos of the 2010 San Diego International Auto Show right here.
Thanks and enjoy…
