5 Best/Worst of the NYIAS

-Christopher Little Five Worst 1. Matte Paint Why is matte paint the worst thing ever? Partly because it is now blatantly over-utilized on show cars and partly because it is absolutely useless to the general public.  Last year, Mercedes caught the bug, displaying every AMG model in matte […]
