The hottest cars in Chicago, all in one place.
Hot Import Nights (HIN) used to be my favorite car show in Chicago. It was the first import show I ever attended and it was a big part of getting me into custom cars. I used to attend every year, until financial problems forced HIN to cut down on tour dates.
The first Supercar Saturday of the year happened, and it was one of the biggest I have been to. Every corner of The Promenade had some high horsepower beasts. The fact that the parking lot was also packed with cars meant that this event was more than one person could cover.

I started this site 11 years ago as static HTML files and eventually moved to dynamically generated pages. The site was database-driven, used caching, and integrated with external systems, but is still used some old software patterns, […]
The last week was the final Supercar Saturday of the year was a couple of weeks ago. There was a great collection of supercars out that weekend (probably better than most). The full gallery is available here.
