I grew up in Chicago and in the days before the Internet where you can quickly view any new car you want at any moment, it was the Chicago Auto Show that brought all the new cars to me for HD 3D viewing. My Dad would take me every year and the key was to get a brochure bag upon entry and then collect all the brochures from all the manufacturers present. Then l would spend hours later looking through all the brochures dreaming of owning my favorite cars.
Gerry's project GVZ posts have stirred up something deep inside and I've been viewing galleries of C126 coupes and getting the car fever that hits me now and then. My Dad reminded me I've always had the fever and was able to scan and send me a photo of myself in my bedroom from 1985. In this photo I cut out brochure pictures of my favorite cars from that year's stash of brochures and pasted my favorites above my bedroom desk. I can spot several C126 models in the photo and of course, being the 80s, the Countach poster had to rule them all!
How does a C126 feel compared to an E500?
