Images: 1990s New York Auto Shows

The 2012 New York International Auto Show will commence on Wednesday morning and we (Jim, Jeff, and I) will be there LIVE!! Before going see all the new cars this year, I thought it would be a good idea to reflect back at the NYIAS cars of yore. Below are three dozen pictures taken at the New York Auto Show in the early to mid 1990s.

Even in my early teenage years all I wanted to write or talk about cars. Each year at the show I would take a ton of pictures with a cheap 35mm point-and-shoot camera and have them developed at a 1-hour photo as soon as I got back home. Being that the internet did not exist at the time, I found anyone and everyone I could to discuss the cars and my pictures with. It was brutal, no one escaped.

I scanned some of the best pictures I could find from those years. Interesting concepts (Ford GT-90), new premiers (OMG, Eagle Talon TSi!!), race cars of the time and of course everyone’s favorite, exotics. Enjoy.
