    It was in Warren, MI at the GM Technical Center. There were a ton of cars there, every generation, stock and modified. There were a ton of aftermarket manufacturers there as well. I got to meet Tom Peters and Ed Welburn (GM Designers), as well as Jeff Nowicki of Specter Werkes, and Chuck Mallett of Mallett Performance. My buddy owns Cauley Chevrolet and Ferrari/Maserati, which was one of the main sponsors of the event, so I got to meet alot of people there. After the show, I went back to the Specter Werkes shop to help Jeff unload the 2 Group 6 Corvettes, and we hung out there for a while and his wife gave me a tour of the shop and all of the design stuff there. It was a pretty cool since I am going to school for Transportation Design at CCS. Anyways, here are the decent pictures I took.

    This shit took forever to upload and copy/paste the tags, so you fuckers better reply and ask some questions or something.

    Yea...the HHR is cool. It was at Cauley over the winter and it was in the basement at the NAIAS. The interior is done too...just leather/suede everywhere, an in-dash DVD, and a system.
    And are you talking about Jeff Nowickis wife? I guess she is good looking, but nothing "eye popping" if you know what I mean. The black CTS-V is hers.

    Just some project car that Cauley brought with them. I thought it was being raffled off at the NAIAS back in January, so I'm not sure what the deal is with it.

    Chuck Mallett was talking about some Gumball 3000 type race he just did while driving a 800 or 900 HP Corvette....he got 3rd place and got 5 tickets doing so haha. He's going to be on Spike TV or SPEED soon I'm pretty sure.

    Yea, he's real cool. I was listening to him and some guys from GM's Performance Division talking and bullshitting about the Solstice and the Sky.
