A decade ago I was one of two official photographers for the show and it was a highlight of my year to spend a weekend there photographing the world's most amazing classic cars. I'm slightly embarrassed to admit this, because I'm crazy about classic cars and l love the people who lovingly restore them, but... I got slightly bored seeing different models of Pierce Arrows and classic Ferraris. I know, right?
I was drawn to the concept car lawn because that's where the latest techno-amazing eye-popping cars were parked. You couldn't get a good photo of them, you were lucky if you ever got to hear an engine or see them move, but shivers down my spine just to stand beside them.
I didn't get to go to the show this year so I had to Google the concept car lawn to see what's up. Here's a sample:
