Although some luxury car makers gave this year's show a skip -- come on down Mercedes-Benz and Porsche -- there was plenty on hand to both interest and amaze show-goers.

Ford's first public showing of its upcoming Falcon and Holden's Commodore coupe concept car were the undoubted headline acts at this year's Melbourne show.

Playstation generation
The three cars that define the Playstation generation -- the Subaru Impreza WRX STI, Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution and Nissan GT-R -- all had new models on show in Melbourne.

&nbsp

Concept cars
It's not Geneva, Paris or Detroit, but there were enough concept cars on display to keep us thinking.

Supercars
