San Francisco Auto Show 2008

Went to the media night at the SF Auto Show last night. Not much to see at Mercedes display. I was hoping they might have the new E Class, but I guess they are keeping it under wraps till spring. They are showing the new small SUV, like a small GL class.

So I was at least hoping to see the new Camaro convertible that was supposed to be there, but it wasn't. A few nice Corvettes though. VW has a nice little car called the CC. Like a junior CLS at half the price.

Let's hope the Big 3 are still around for next year's show. Every one seemed subdued.

1984 300D 225,000 miles (hit and totaled by bad driver)
1987 300E 209,000 miles (donated to worthy cause, still going)
1988 300E 240,000 miles (given to one of my sons)
1998 E320 120,000 miles (Obsidian, 17' E500 rims, sold to another son)
1990 300CE 129,000 miles (Silver/ black int) Daily Driver
2000 E430 82,000 miles ( Desert Silver 17" W211 rims)
