Lots of new sheet metal in town this week. The annual LA Auto Show opens to the public Friday, and our motor critic Sue Carpenter has been prowling the halls of the Convention Center.
Sue says this show is really well-rounded, with all the traditional performance and style, served up with a large helping of new tech, and sprinkled with glimpses of an e-mobility future.
The show runs through the end of the Thanksgiving weekend. Here's Sue's roadmap for Auto Show bliss:
- Wear comfortable shoes
- Save dough. Rather than park in the Convention Center, find a space in one of the lots surrounding it.
- Head to the North Hall first. It's the closest to the entrance.
- On the way, check out the Elio 3-wheeler and the Honda Uni-Cub
- In the North Hall, don't miss the Nissan Star Wars cars
- From there, go back through the main lobby, past the Tesla display, toward the South Hall. There's a gallery of exotics along the way.
- Save some time to make it down to the basement where the weird stuff is - car customizers, odd auto products and E-bikes.
