    I am not sure if anyone posted it, kind of in a rush so did really search . . . anyway just to let anyone know if they are in the DC area try and stop by the convention center to check out the cars.

    There is nice 360 with a full Hamann body kit and wheels there. FOW has one of their 360 Challenge cars from Daytona there as well.

    Also saw the Murcielago in person for the first time too. Beautiful cars, take look if you get minute to stop by.

    I went there on the first day. It was a pretty nice Modena actually. The Murci next to it was the owner's brother's car. Apparently none of the FoW guys showed up though. The Rolls Royce people, who shared the section, were trying to figure out if any of them would be coming.

    I heard there was supposed to be an MB SLR there. It was on their website, but with only 3 out there I doubt they'd send it to the DC show. When I talked to the MB people they said it'd most likely be at the Detriot, LA, or NY shows next year.

    Overall it was a lot better than last year. Definetly a lot more cars there.

    Gallardo? Bentley Conti GT? Anything else "special?" Skipped last year, but I'm thinking about going.

    There were a few hot rods, a new 911 Anniversary model, a Black Vanquish which hads its sound system blaring, and a Maserati Coupe and Spyder.

    Here are a few photos from the DC show. This should probably be in showroom but this is where the thread already resided. Enjoy!!

    Full Hamann body kit. This car actually had 335 series tires on the rear!!! I was surprised they actually fit.

    Anyone else dislike the yellow wheels on the 360 as much as I do?

    Not a big fan of the color either, but love the Hamann wheels.

    I thought the show was terrible unless you were looking for a new dodge or a minivan or something along those lines. No Bentley, Gallardo, Aston, Ford GT, Benz SLR etc. Not even an sl55. What a waste of time.
