    I want to go but I'm not sure if my dad wants to. I went to a auto show with my friend and his family a few years back and I loved it! First time I ever saw 3 lamborghini Murcielago's right in front of my eyes! Actually come to think of it, that is the only time I saw a Murcielago. I will still try and talk my dad into it, it will be a blast!

    Are we maybe going to get together or something to go there? Just wondering...

    The 10th or 11th I would like to attend. If someone is going on one of these days, let me know. I'll be at Crystal Cove and spending the weekend with Kathy and won't be remotely close to the convention center until the following weekend.

    Not positive. I might be in Vegas next weekend, so maybe on the 4th?

    Going tomorrow :) And, most likely a second time later on :) :) What a way to kick off the year with lots of cars to oggle at and play with.

    Though the website has no mention of the 612, and the world debut isn't till Detroit in a few days, have any of you heard of any plans for displaying after its been shown in Detroit? The LA show is always full of nice surprises, and I figure it would pretty dumb not to show it in LA/Ferrariland at this huge event. Maybe I'll ask the Ferrari people tomorrow if they know anything. Pretty excited to see it.

    Haven't seen the Gallardo yet either--been looking forward to seeing it for some time now.


    If any of you haven't been I would highly recommend finding a few hours out of your time and going. I am always counting the days as the new year rolls in.

    Okay - we need a secret handshake. PM'ed Slag & Eric.
    Just for the halibut - I'm taking Red Line to Blue Line MetroRail.
    Driving to an LA Auto Show is so 20th century. If there's an earthquake, you'll know where to find me in several weeks.

    Wax, did you ever get out those PM's. I am starting to become suspicious of my PMing. I'm not sure if I'm receiving them. I think I might have gotten a few responses previously that never got to me. Hmm...time to investigate.

    Anyway, I'll probably be leaving for the show in a couple hours. Maybe I'll post a couple interesting pictures later.

    Ah, I see - just tried to send message to both recipients again - Slagle's PM Box is full (It won't send message at all if one of multiple recipients is overstuffed.) Sent it straight to you instead.

    In the original send, I figured I was done, closed the page, as I already had 8 pages/windows open, as normal.

    After completing task this time, I jumped to the "Sent" folder to confirm - Done.

    *Reminds self: "Never assume anything"*

    Sorry about that. I just emptied it out.

    I just got back from the show - Nothing too exciting, except I really liked that Lotus Elise!

    Did you see anyone with a really obnoxious/Loud Ferrari shirt on? That would have been me, lol.

    Just got back.

    Tom, didn't get your PM till now. I guess my thing is working then :)

    The LA show is always a fun time IMO. Finally saw the Gallardo!!! As far as size and interior/exterior looks the car is awsome. I love it.

    It was obnoxiously crowded though--probably being first day and all. Doubt the 612 will make a showing later on. I wanted to ask the Ferrari people but I just got fed up with the crowd and moved on.
