By Ed Curran
If you visited the Chicago Auto Show there are probably a few cars that you're still daydreaming about. Visitors to the show got to vote on what cars and exhibits they liked the most. The winner of "The Vehicle I'd Most Like to Have In My Driveway" was the Ford Shelby GT500. It's a 650 horsepower, 200 mile per hour, dream car. The Shelby Mustang also won the best all-new production vehicle. The winner of the best concept car was the Lexus LF-LC. Best Green Vehicle, the Chevy Volt, Best Exhibit was Jeep, with its outrageous indoor test track. Now if they could only build an indoor track for that Mustang.....
