LA Auto Show / SoCal HH

OK, how many of us "California Surfer Dudes" want to hit up the LA Auto Show and see the DC100 Abomination in person?

We can make it a HH as well... I think I will need drinks to help my brain process the hideousness.

Are there any dates that work better than others? Our club trip is the 19th/20th, so I probably say that's bad. The show runs from the 18th to the 27th.

I am down for going but I hate the crowds so we literally would have to look at the rovers and get out to a bar ASAP or I will cry

my brother and I may go either Monday or Tuesday, as he works in Culver City.. Not bad price wise, either.. Should I assume that parking will suck?

Well we are headed up the 5 right now. Does anyone know what the parking situation is at LA Live or the convention center if you have a tall rig? We are in Josh's 90.

You should all stop at costume stores and get ken doll outfits to wear there. Get girlfriends to go and dress them up as Barbies. I'll bet the press publishes those pictures to the dismay of Mr. McGovern.

Well LA live has 8+ Foot parking so we are good there... Eating at yard house and putting down some beer so the shock of the DC100 won't hurt so bad.

Not going to the show tomorrow. Totally let down by those pics.

On a better note, saw a military 109 on Beverly Glen.. Will post pic in that thread.
