LOS ANGELES AUTO SHOW
All eyes on the first show of the model year

AUTO SHOW—As the first major auto show of the model year in North America, the Los Angeles Auto Show is like the Iowa caucuses and New Hampshire primaries of the show circuit. The New York show has the largest attendance, Chicago has the most square footage, and Detroit the most debuts, but the LA Auto Show lays claim as the pacesetter—the show that rides the crest of the new model year wave. It’s a distinction it acquired when it moved the show from January to November. The show takes place on November 21-30, 2014, but all eyes were on the press and trade days on November 18-20th.

50 SHADES OF ORANGE
Scenes from the 2015 Model OC International Auto Show

EVENT—It’s Southern California’s first auto show of the model year. That alone made the 2015 Model Orange County International Auto Show worth the price of admission. It’s all about the new cars. And the OC show had plenty of that—new cars, a number of high-end exotics, over 100 test drive opportunities, electric vehicles and more. The show draws from a very big crowd—Orange County and Long Beach. Here are 50 scenes from the show at the Anaheim Convention Center.

TREASURES FROM ACROSS THE POND
10th Annual Japanese Classic Car Show

EVENT—It’s been 10 years since the first Japanese Classic Car Show. When Japanese cars first arrived on American shores back in the 1950s and 60s, no one could have predicted they would one day rise to collector status. But that is exactly what happened. And on September 27th, we saw a collection of the pioneering Toyota Coronas on display as if they were still in 1965, along with an array of groundbreaking Datsun 510s, a contingent of Honda 600s, the first rotary-powered Mazda, the beautiful Toyota 2000GT, and the rest of the automotive cast from the other side of the Pacific pond at the port of the Queen Mary.

REMEMBERING THE KING OF COBRAS
The Carroll Shelby Tribute & Car Show

AUTO SHOW— While the general public may know Mr. Shelby as the crafter of fast cars, the attendees at the Second Annual Carroll Shelby Tribute & Car Show were also able to learn about the philanthropic exploits of the man as well. Both parts of Mr. Shelby’s legacy were celebrated at the event, which took place at the future home of the Carroll Shelby Automotive Museum in Gardena, California.
