You won’t see anything like this happen in Geneva or in Frankfurt. Only in New York, ladies and gentlemen!

In what has become an unwanted yearly tradition, a bunch of rowdy teenagers decided that the New York Auto Show wasn’t getting enough action so they decided to bring the action to it. After leaving the auto show, these male hooligans took off to Times Square and continued their blatant disregard for anything that’s decent.

The fracas resulted in four individuals getting shot – all of them weren’t seriously injured, thank God – and about thirty more people getting arrested.

We’re not ones to hinder people from having fun, but if it gets as out-of-hand like what happened here, we’d want to have these imbeciles put away before they cause any more harm to other folks.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

I was so upset to see the Civic shot by a gun. Anyways, I think NYC Auto Show
and Easter, and Source Awards have something in common, they always get stabbed or shot.

the police should be more alert on the event like this! Too bad I get disappointed to the performance on the polices.

This is not good. I think if that auto show will happen again, they must provide much security to make sure they control everything.

What the hell! I think those crowds haven’t seen that car yet in their entire life.

So what’s the main reason of loosing control of the crowds? This is not a blockbuster movie, isn’t it?
