Come Meet Your Favorite Autopian Writers At Our LA Auto Show Booth All Week!

Cometotheshow Top

We had an excellent shrimp-filled auto show party yesterday, but the Autopian booth wasn’t just a one-day affair. Our writers will be at the LA Auto Show from today through the end of the show, so please join us and  try to stump us with questions, get your photos taken with your favorite microcars, and otherwise just talk our ears off about cars (we won’t mind; hell, we’ll love it). Plus, use code AUTOPIAN22 when you buy a ticket and you’ll get $3 off! What could be better? Your spouse is tired of listening to you blather on about the DAF’s “Variomatic” belt-driven CVT, anyway; but we won’t be.

The LA Auto Show runs from today, November 18th all the way through Sunday, November 27th. The Autopian’s goal is to have at least a couple of writers in our space every day that isn’t Thanksgiving (though the show is open [Editor’s Note: I will be there, possibly rebuilding an engine. Come help! -DT]). We’re in the Galpin Hall of Customs along with some extremely great cars.

If you’ve never been to the LA Auto Show, you should know that it’s split into three sections, with the South Hall on the left (in this photo) and the West Hall on the right. Between those two halls is the Galpin Hall of Customs and once you’re in there you can’t miss us.

The show opens at 9:00 AM most days and continues until 7:00 PM or 10:00 PM, depending on the day. We will try to be there most of the time, although I’d guess the 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM window is the best time to find us.

Here are some things you can do if you come:

  • Watch us blog and ask us questions. [Editor’s Note: I cannot believe we’re seriously telling folks to “watch us blog.” I, for one, will not be sitting on my computer while guests are around. WE SHALL TALK CARS! -DT]. 
  • Try to go on camera and stump us by asking hard car questions.
  • Go to the Galpin Auto Sports merch section and get some Autopian merch
  • Get your photo taken with microcars

You can even make a little GIF.

We have some great cars on display:

  • Five Microcars
    • PTV 250
    • Biscuter
    • Zündapp Janus
    • Scootacar
    • P. Vallee Chantecler
  • TJ Russell’s SEMA-winning Baja 911
  • Rinspeed Porsche 969
  • Aston Martin Virage Shooting Brake
  • David’s junky Nash Metropolitan
  • All of Galpin’s awesome customs

Again, if you’re in the So Cal area come over and say hello!

  1. I saw the cars yesterday at the show and the Janus was amazing. But someone should tell David that his car technically isn’t a Nash. Starting in 1958 they were marketed as Metropolitans so they could be sold at Rambler dealers

    1. Yeah well, I won’t be there either, so that’s two massive chunks of our readership who are going to be sorely disappointed.

      It’s kinda like going to a Star Wars convention and the only person there signing autographs is the guy who played Porkins…

        1. Don’t try pulling any of that British stuff on me. I own both an Allegro and a Maestro and I used to own a Metro and a rubber-bumpered MGB, so what are the odds I’ll be fooled a fifth time?

          On an unrelated note, do you know of any nice Triumph Acclaims for sale over there?

  2. “Your spouse is tired of listening to you blather on about the DAF’s ‘Variomatic’ belt-driven CVT…”

    No, mostly I think she’s just resigned to the fact that I spend so much time and effort working on one.

    It may help that I try to do my blathering here instead.
