Here’s the DIRT!

My true impression of this one is that it has good entertainment value for many who will suspend belief for sake of an upbeat yarn where one can see the end coming from a mile away, but that’s still fun to look at anyway. With that in mind, I can recommend this to pro and novice alike. The plot line and look is more Hallmark than History Channel, but the racing scenes are stunning, and if there’s any CGI in this one, I’ve been swigging too much Lucas Oil Tune Up. Editor Doug Stokes, who has been there and flacked that, reviews DIRT.

Even the second one’s the charm

LA CAR REPORT—The Classic Auto Show, held March 2-4 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, holds magic for any interest, and may even have you falling in love with something new. There’s so much to see it’s overwhelming. Good overwhelming. It’s like a car club of almost every marque gathered all at once, and they all brought their best stuff. LACar Editor-at-Large Brian Kennedy reports.

Scenes from the ArtCenter’s show

GALLERY—While much of America was shivering, we Angelinos got to take our pick of car events to attend in October. At the top of LACar’s list this time of year is Car Classic, held annually on the grounds of the ArtCenter College of Design in beautiful Pasadena. This year’s theme of rossa corsa, white, and bleau de France celebrated the “innovative feats of transportation design stemming from Italy, America, and France.” Our intrepid photographer Albert Wong was there to capture some of the special cars and people who came out to enjoy this gem of a local show.

and only in L.A.!

LA CAR REPORT—Even the veiled threat of early fall showers a week or two ago couldn’t prevent the cognoscenti and other assorted francophones and italophiles from attending this year’s edition of The Best of France and Italy Car Show. Our staffer who once owned a Ferrari, Dave Wolin, takes us for a stroll at the annual gathering of the faithful in (freeway close) Woodley Park.
