I went to the auto show on Sunday, wasn't bad, kind of upset that my camera died like 5 minutes after I walked in the door though. Very similar to every auto show I've been to though.

Ford display was huge, and by far had the most amount of people running around it, Mustang was sweet, but I've already got the chance to test drive it in Oct back in Detroit. :rockon

They had a Raptor driving simulator which was pretty sweet too.

GM and Chrysler did a decent job putting on a show, but Ford had a magic show...lol don't ask me why, but it did get more people to pay attention to them.

The most fun you can have is asking one of the hot women paid to stand next to the car and look pretty, but have no technological sense about the fine automobile she is standing next, a mild question; like how many valves that v10 viper your leaning on have? You'll get back the most random answer that has nothing to do with what you asked.

I also wanted to go and check out the car my company half sponsered.

It is built off what looks like the Ford GT40 but with 30kW microturbine.

"The CMT-380's design performance numbers speak for themselves: 0-60 mph in 3.9 seconds, 150 mph top speed, and an unheard-of driving range of up to 500 miles on a single tank of fuel, all with ultra-low exhaust emissions that rival any hybrid on the market today,"
Pretty crazy

That's the Factory Five Racing GT-M car. It's a mid engined car that uses a C5 Corvette as the donor and a porsche transaxle. It's pretty badass...but you're saying this particular one is turbine powered??

Yes, I don't know too much info on it, but trying to learn.

I'll i've really got was the link that I attached, but I'm trying to get some more specs on it.

here's the official FFR http://www.factoryfive.com/gtmhome.html And here's a non affiliated forum link to that specific chassis, http://www.ffcobra.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=42 Should look at the Finished GTM Gallery thread... they're purdy!

ThetaTauMan 12-09-2009 05:17 PM

That would be a pretty sweet kit car if I had $50k to throw at it. I would love to get my hands on the Solidworks file for the car/chassis.
