    Car shows are for cars only if you have cars in mind. It's all in the mind.

    Advertisement.... why do we see mostly great looking people on TV ads or billboard ?? Get some pretty little thing and stand around a car... this attract people to come look at the car... not the 1st time this 'trick' has been used... even PC shows are full of such 'models'...

    A good photo's 45% you, 45% practice & 10% equipment. A bad photo share the same ratio.

    Human like beautiful things. When you buy a cake, the decorations is not the tasty part but it attracts you to the cake. Similarly, the picture of the food attracts you before you know if it is nice. The first 3 minutes story.

    Take away those girls and the visitors might recognize what the show is all about: partially overpriced engineering results.
    Another way, done by Lincoln during New York Autoshow, with definitely more style than those XMM in their silly dresses:

    Nope... XMM puts me off even food heh. But I can eat very well just sitting there looking at cars and studying the technology and design that goes into them all day long. LOL same goes for camera exhibits or mountain bikes or computers.. all the kind of stuff I spend my hard earn money on. Those are more worth it.
