LA Auto Show - Alfa Romeo Guilia and Fiat 124 Spider

We went to the LA Auto Show last week, and really enjoyed a number of vehicles.   First up:  The new 2017 Alfa Romeo Guilia.   A beautiful car, and to my eye the medium gray looked the best (they had FOUR Guilias on display!).
 This angle shows off the curvature of the side pretty well - it looks much better in person than in photos.
 An intriguing 3/4 angle.
 The interior is nice also.
 Probably my favorite angle on it.
 The blue I didn't like as well.  Too bright maybe?  And the boy racer wheels don't cut it for me.
 In the right red, the Guilia could really be sharp.  Unfortunately I don't think this is the right red.  Too basic for me...would rather something more metallic / candy apple.

 But the car that really captured my heart at the show as the new 2017 Fiat 124 Spider.  Absolutely magnificent!
 I even liked it in the bright blue - a better shade than the Guilia's blue.
 And though I'm typically not partial to white, the metallic white was superb on this car.
 Okay, I'm going to bore you with a few shots of the 124...I couldn't pick my favorite angle so I'm posting them all!  I think the design is darn near perfect...this car will become a timeless classic.  Even moreso that the original 124, in my opinion.

 There were a few custom cars at the show too, such as this Galpin Mustang convertible.
 ...As a hardtop...
 The Galpin GTR1.

A resto-mod 1970 Chevrolet Camaro.  Very tasteful, love the new grill it really adds a lot to the design.  In the background is the 2017 Camaro - a totally new design.  You can see that males were swarming it, so I couldn't get a good shot of it.  Judging by the crowd around it, I'd say it is going to sell very well...

And finally, a video of the 124.  To truly understand the beauty, I think you have to see movement of the lines as this video tries to portray.  Unfortunately uploading to Youtube loses video quality, because the original video that I have is quite stunning.
