I am not sure how many of you guys have seen this before, but i recommend anyone who is an auto enthusiast check out the amazing collection of photos from over the years....

http://www.chicagoautoshow.com/show_history/default.aspx

I was searching for something else caprice related in google images, and one of the photos took me to this site. I had never seen it before, and I was blown away at how intricate and detailed the displays were back in the day.

Here are a few of the photos I copied from the site...

Thanks for the link, I'd seen some of those but have never actually dug through that site. Pretty amazing timeline there.

LOL! That was the funniest thing I've seen all week. Sorry Steve.

This thread is full of awesome, mostly the pictures, but also Glen and Steve fighting about age Laughing 

Very nice cars in there. Why can't current auto shows display that nicely?
