Visited my friend at Brabus with Tyler while I was in OC and he gave us more stuff!
Another mousepad and a cool backpack!
I’ve been wanting a new backpack!
And I had to take a photo of a car of course…
The title came in and it’s on its way out to the buyer. It’s been fun, Ray. But everything that was associated with it is now out of my life, FOR GOOD! About these ads
Location: Los Angeles, ANYWHERE!
Crime: Parking in the yellow loading zone.
Be smart and utilize the perks of Los Angeles street parking.
In case you didn’t know, yellow loading zones are OKAY to park in on Sundays (all day)and 6:00pm – 7:00am Monday-Saturday.
My friend commented on my status when I had posted about going to the auto show.
He designed and built the Kia booth!
I was looking forward to seeing it because the hall that Kia is in isn’t usually a hall I’m interested in but I was curious to see how grand it was.
Boy was I impressed!
Good job Chris Petit!
I still remember you in the talent shows with your dad!!!!
Been waiting since Thanksgiving to go to the Auto Show, unfortunately it wasn’t any better than the OC Auto Show. Okay, maybe a wee bit better but still not satisfying for a girl who loves cars.
Porsche’s showroom shining bright like a diamond from afar, but no 911 Turbo S in sight and the only Turbo they had to show was an average SILVER Panamera. I could’ve just driven myself to Fashion Island or Beverly Hills.
It was our first hall we visited and I hoped that the other manufacturers weren’t going to disappoint.
Saw some cool cars and then saw some disappointing ones.
The most hurtful was the full size Land Rover Range Rove HSE. What were they thinking with the new design. I would have at least thought that they would lean towards the Jaguar design than the Ford. Such resemblance of the Ford Flex, was heartbreaking, and I can’t believe I’m saying this but my love for the Range Rover is not as strong anymore.
It looked smaller or because they used the hydraulics to bring the vehicle lower, it just appeared that way. Either way, I cried a little inside.
Tell me this doesn’t look like a Flex!
Nothing new on the RS5, just wish that they wouldn’t make the side mirrors in the aluminum. I personally think the car should all be one color. I guess I’m just glad it’s not black plastic like the American cars. They didn’t even have an R8!
I had to take a photo cause it was purple.
Perfect for Duck Dynasty
The rest of the car show and remaining halls were utterly painful. A few cars here and there but a lot of the bigger vendors missing from the high end luxury and Kentia Hall.
I’ve always been a satisfied visitor but this visit was no bueno. No Lamborghini, no Ferrari and no Platinum Motorsports.
I may have to end my yearly ritual if this is how it’s going to be the following years from now.
If you’re wanting to go because there are a few days left, I say, save yourself the trouble and just enjoy the pictures I’ve posted.
Or better yet, just drive yourself to the McKenna in Pasadena and make a day of creating your own Auto Show.
Mercedes didn’t have the CL, Audi didn’t have an R8 and I’m still upset about the new Range Rover being the biggest downfall of the show.
If you do visit, I told you so…
