The doors to the 2009 Consumer Electronics Show don't officially open until Thursday morning, but we got a sneak preview of the setup going on in the LVCC's North Hall. That's where most of the automotive action will be concentrated and there are plenty of wild rides lining the halls.

You'll notice that in most of the photos, like the Galpin Scythe (above), the exhibitors' booths are far from complete. As the week unfolds, we'll bring you more from the floor and attempt to get our hands on some of the best car-related tech in Vegas. For Alex, the original KITT's here – or at least a close facsimile – and for all you Pontiac G8 ST fans, Azentek/Navigon has everyone's favorite stillborn ute on hand, although it could just be a Holden Commodore with a G8 nose job. We'll find out more tomorrow, so stay tuned.

UPDATE: We spoke with Azentek about their G8 ST. Apparently it is indeed one of the only G8 STs in existence. Donnie Zanney of Azentek says his company is just down the road from GM and, like a good neighbor, lets the tech company borrow a car every now and then. Unfortunately, yes, they have to give it back.

      Red on cars looks so cheap, no matter how much gloss there is. Orange is the new sexy red.

      Don't forget to check out the other halls. There's a few cars in the Pioneer booth in the Center Hall at CES that I saw earlier today. Defintely worth looking at.

      That Ford flex looks awesome with that grille.

        That Alien looking thing is disgusting.

        Oh and that Malibu is porn in matte black paint.

      Not gonna lie. That Scythe thing IS scary. I took all that yellow caution tape as fair warning and stayed back.

      does that sick matte black malibu have a jackhammer in it?!
      that would be the ultimate test of GM build quality

      This is a pretty crazy looking machine!

      who ever did that orange Vette needs to be shot

      Gotta like the philosophy of throwing on the biggest baddest most expensive parts on cars that totally don't need them. Can't imagine that there's anything on that Scion (pic #3) that warrants ultra mega mega brakes like what's hiding behind that front wheel, but by golly they put on a caliper big enough to stop a locomotive, ya know, just in case.
