It’s Southern California’s first auto show of the model year. That alone made the 2014 Model Orange County International Auto Show worth the price of admission. The Orange County show got some of its wind knocked out when organizers of the Los Angeles show decided to move from January to November, right up next to the OC show. No matter. It’s all about the new cars. And the OC show had plenty of that—new cars, a number of high-end exotics, a barrel full of test drives, electric vehicles and more. The show drew from a very big crowd—Orange County and Long Beach. We had our digital gear in hand to capture the Anaheim Convention Center moment.
