Convention hall lighting sucks. It makes taking a good photo damn near impossible and will create a frayed mental state over the course of a day. However, it's worth enduring hours of being blasted with tungsten rays since the reward is getting up close and personal with all sorts of new vehicles, before the show is open to gen pop.
Seeing as I've somehow convinced the LA Auto Show folks that I'm a legit member of the automotive press core and secured credentials, I figured I'd turn to the Oppo community for suggestions on what to fill my second day with.
I've already interviewed people from Chrysler, Ford, KIA and Porsche but I'm happy to go back and take more pictures if there's specific stuff you'd like to see.
On the docket for tomorrow I have Toyota, Mazda, Jaguar/Land Rover, Subaru, BMW, Volvo, Mercedes, Audi, Mini, VW, GM, and Bentley. If you've got a question you want me to throw at any of their reps, leave it in the comments. The more ridiculous the better.
I do plan to go see if Nissan is doing anything interesting anytime soon and I'll check in with Acura because they looked lonely today. Mitsubishi is at the show hanging out in a corner next to Fiat and I'm told that Infiniti is there as well.
Look forward to seeing some good question suggestions and photo requests from you Opponauts, don't disappoint me!
There's a concept car up there somewhere beyond a sea of suits and square toed shoes.
If only Toyota had the balls to produce anything like the FT-1 instead more Howards.
Maserati got drunk and built an F-Type with Buick design touches.
Can anyone tell me what SKYACTIV technology is?
The three people in the background are exactly the type of people that will buy this.
The new Maybach caused quite a stir, not as much as the guy in overalls with a ponytail but quite a stir nonetheless.
I absolutely love that Ford had a German flag painted pony on the wall.
But not as much as I loved this, I mean that is just so kick ass amirite?!
So KIA had this virtual skiing machine setup. My friend Dylan killed it, even got a round of applause. Then we went over to the Ballast Point vending area built out of a Sedona and drank some free beer. Thanks KIA!
Beautyrest Black is a luxury mattress line, in case you were wondering.
Fireball Tim told me you don't know luxury until you've experienced a Bentley. He's right and hopefully Bentley will help me learn all about luxury very soon.
If you turn your head to the side the B looks like a pair of cartoon own eyes. Some shit you can't unsee bro!
