LA CAR REPORT—Los Angelenos are familiar with Carmageddon and Jamzilla. San Gabriel Valley has another one for the local lexicon: Carcadia. It’s Arcadia’s equivalent to an automotive flash mob that happens every fourth Sunday of the month at 7:30 a.m., right off of Route 66, in the lot behind the windmill-laden Denny’s restaurant that once served as a Van de Kamp Bakery store. Carcadia founder and LA Car’s newest contributing editor Glenn Oyoung tells the story.
LA CAR REPORT— Every year, new laws take effect but many people don’t learn about them until they get pulled over and ticketed for them. So, hey, let’s be a bit proactive here, and get to know the new laws before a violation sucks some big bucks right out of your pocket. Unless otherwise noted, these new laws and changes are effective January 1, 2016. Reed “The Traffic Guy” Berry reports.

LA CAR REPORT—The annual Motor Press Guild Awards, held at the Petersen Automotive Museum, spanned the trending new as well as the test of time. Micah Muzio of Kelley Blue Book represented the new, earning the Dean Bachelor Award for his video review of the 2015 Polaris Slingshot. Representing the test of time was LA Car’s own Doug Stokes, who earned the MPG Lifetime Achievement Award. Managing Editor Zoran J. Segina reports.
REVIEW—The world of tires is a bit like the latest, trendy beverage. There’s a whole lot of hype, and you don’t really know what you’re going to get until it’s too late. We gathered a set of three curiously interesting tires. Pirelli came to play with the P-Zero Run Flat tires. Yokohama is touting its new Advan Neova AD08 R. The final player is Bridgestone with the RE-11. After conducting a direct back-to-back comparison of the products, here are the results and our real world driving observations. To keep this as fair as possible, we use the supremely competent installation of CEC Wheels in Los Angeles.
