Our intrepid mid-state LACar.com field reporter, exotic car aficionado, semi-professional racing driver, bon vivant, snappy-dresser and part-time Santa’s helper Dave Wolin takes us to a big car bash for a good cause … The 14th annual Motor4Toys gathering in Woodland Hills.

THE BIG, THE BAD, AND THE PRETTY
at the LA Auto Show

LA CAR REPORT—Trucks. And more trucks. Big ones. That’s what the American brands (Ford and Chevy) are showing at the LA Auto Show this year. Chrysler, too, along with a whole bunch of versions of the Charger and Challenger. Let’s not mistake this: anything that earns the name “Hellcat” is pretty cool. So is the Dodge Demon, with 808 HP on pump gas, and 32 more on high octane. But most of what Fiat Chrysler is showing, aside from the Fiats, is pretty much what they’ve been selling for a decade. Is that a portent of a boring Auto Show? Read on. Brian Kennedy reports.

LA CAR REPORT—It’s Thanksgiving Night … We’re Sitting In the Bleachers at Ventura Raceway, It’s Cold, We’re Eating Track Dogs, and Fries, Sipping Cold Beer and Choking Down Lukewarm Coffee … Why? What’s the big attraction of an annual auto racing event that causes people to leave the company and comfort of their homes on Thanksgiving evening? Tim Kennedy explains why every year thousands of people leave festive holiday gatherings of family and friends to attend an outdoor midget auto race somewhere in southern California no matter where that race is being held or what the temperature is at the race site.

CHEVROLET TRUCKS
100 Years of Building the Future

BOOK REVIEW—“If you’ve read my previous articles for LACar, you know that I’m a self-professed Chevy guy. So when I got the assignment to write a review on a book celebrating the 100 year anniversary of Chevy trucks, I was in GM heaven! The official title of the book is “Chevrolet Trucks 100 Years of Building The Future” by Larry Edsall, a former editor at AutoWeek magazine and also a contributor to several other automotive publications.” LACar’s resident Chevy truck aficionado Tom Gomez reviews the book.
