We've wrapped up day one in the windy city and to bid fair well until tomorrow we've put together all of the highlights from first day of the 2009 Chicago Auto Show.
The Chicago Auto Show is typically a truck show, but today brought out quite a few small and mid-size debuts along with the entire Transformers Autobot crew including Sideswipe (Corvette Stingray Concept), Bumblebee (Camaro), Jolt (Volt), Skids (Beat/Spark) and Mudflap (Trax). Ford proved that they were still relevant fo' SHO with the 2010 Taurus SHO and a torque curve flatter than our economy. The South Koreans came out strong with the 2010 Kia Forte and the 2009 Genesis Coupe R-Spec, though Hyundai forgot to bring bibs to their reveal.
