Motor Show

I can't believe that it's been two years since the last motor show at ExCeL. Once again I found it a bit disappointing: it seems to be thinning out more and more - there wasn't even a BMW stand this year.

In fact the only new thing I noticed today was the new presence of hijabis in attendance and, perhaps related to that, Asian booth babes. Motoring has become ethnically mainstream, it seems.

Car of the show? Well now I'm really struggling but if I had to pick it would probably be the Nissan Skyline GTR, although Alfa Romeo had some interesting new stuff too, and I wouldn't say no to a free Lotus Evora either.
