A little NAIAS for you

Brian M, he of the SportCombi full of tennis balls, was recently in Detroit and snapped off some photos at the NAIAS while he was there.

The Saab Aero-X was front-and-centre in GM’s concept showcase at the entrance to the GM section of the show, which is quite prolific, really. (And as an aside, there’s a good article on GM Design’s development here at the New York Times).

That purple beast you see is the Holden Efijy, a modern conceptual interpretation of the FJ Holden of the 1950s – a car that is now a genuine Australian icon.

Finally, there’s some shots of Peter Gilbert’s million-mile Saab 900 SPG, which looks pretty good both inside and out for a million-mile car.

This 60th Anniversary 9-5 rim looks like it’s still in undercoat. Must be the light.

Form over function, but looking great nonetheless
