Thumbs up Handful of Pics from My Trip to The 2014 DALLAS AUTO SHOW

Had a great time with my family last night at the Dallas Convention Center. There were plenty of nice rides and here are a few of the highlights for me. Enjoy!




The PAGANI is "foking UNREAL in person"





The WRAITH is easily on my "Top 5 Most Wanted on Earth". So much 'presence' you might as well be driving a Disney Parade Float down the road.







Me and my 2 lil' mini-me's along with a 2014 Nismo Edition GT-R






Ended the night with some fine Mexican food and a tasty Beerita!

Awesome pics. Agree with you...the Wraith is an incredible looking car. My head is spinning trying to figure out what you have going on with the whole beer/margarita thing. LOL...WTF is that??

Cool pics! Boys are growing up.

I too wondered what that beer Margherita was. Never seen that. Is it a Texas thing?

Thank you guys for the compliments! Haha! I had wondered if the infamous "beerita" had made its way up north yet or even outside of Texas? So I don't know it's exact origins but I've heard it started in Mexico and quickly worked it's way across the border quickly! I've been drinking then over a year so it's nothing new here locally. I will say this... If you like them both, combining them is pure win! It tastes fantastic and is very refreshing.
Wish I would've came up with it. In fact, it is so popular, Budweiser and Corona specifically make and market a 8oz bottle for the drink. What you see here is a 12oz in a giant glass. It got me buzzed.

Funny thing is I was buzzed myself when I was looking at your pics earlier today and I thought that I was semi imagining things. Then I got called into work, drank alot of coffee to sober up, and realized you really do have a pic of an upside down bottle of bud light in a Margarita, with what looks like sea salt (??).
Anyway you have a great looking family. Your sons are going to be beating them off with a stick.

Great pics TX! It looks like you & the boys had an awesome time.
The Pagani & Wraith are SICK! Quick question, how big was the Pagani interior...would you be able to fit comfortably inside?
As for the "beerita", too funny! It hasn't made it's was to GA yet either.

I am really loving the colour on that 4 Series. The Pagani Huayra is just insane!

Thanks my man! We did. The little trucks they got to drive for like 20-30min straight was a surprise to us all. They really enjoyed themselves. And being a dad, that's what it's all about.
The Pagani will hold two 6 footers with ease. But I would suggest taking it easy on the sandwiches, cakes, and beer! These cars are never too accommodating in the seat width dept. But what an absolute BEAST!!! And the raw clear coated carbon fiber shell is just breath taking!

That 4 series looks less and less appealing each time i see it.I can't pin point ...but somethings missing.The Pagani on the other hand....Just trying to imagine your first response when you saw it.

Indeed Leslie! The new Yas Marina Blue is striking in person. I'd definitely rock one with this available saddle/black interior as a show stopping contrast:



Speaking of, the seats are sooooo nice in this car!

Yeah, I meant to comment on the trucks, that is a really cool addition. I KNOW the boys were ecstatic! Nothing cooler than seeing a dad putting quality time in w/his kids.

The M4's seats are very nice, however, I'm surprised the I-drive controller is so large...from the picture, it looks to be the largest I've seen in any bimmer.

TX,
I meant to say thanks for the pictures and forgot. Also, you've got some great looking kids! Since I've seen the pictures of your wife, I know who is responsible for them looking so good!

Nice to see it's made its way outside if Texas. To you other guys.... Next time you're out at a Mexican restaurant, order your margarita (big glass) order your fav brew and just quickly turn iodide down in the glass. The beer will slowly come out as you drink from a straw. You'll start the trend there!

Correct you are! It's your job to help them realize their dreams...and know that they can achieve anything they set their minds to.

Thanks for the pics Marcus - very cool way to spend some time with the kiddos.

As for the beer-rita, I happen to own a restaurant and we sell The Most Interesting Margarita In The World - a frozen margarita with a Dos Equis turned upside down in the middle of it. For $7 you can't beat it - and we sell the hell out of them. I can't drink more than one without relinquishing my car keys.

Tequila + beer = good times.

There ya go! Ha! Awesome. Where are you located? Not asking you to divulge the name and physical address, just curious if you're in the south as well.
Also, where did you get the idea?

I'm in the burbs - Flower Mound. Restaurant is Fuzzy's Tacos (but not the location out here). I grew up in San Antonio, so margaritas and beer are sort of in my blood. Mix in some cheap tacos and I'm happy.

They're all like that now because of the touchpad on top of the controller.

Thanks for the pics Marcus.
And I'm with you regarding the Wraith!
