These trends not withstanding, some cars just stood out while walking amidst the glitz, glamour and 700 or so models displayed. Here are just a few:

These exhibits include neither concept cars nor production debuts, but they do include one-of-a-kind/exclusive models with a "wow" factor. In other words, they are "must see" stand outs at the 2010 North American International Auto Show.
