LA Auto Show Gets Motors Running + Giveaway

BMW i3 concept car, which will be on display at the LA Auto Show.
UPDATE: Congrats to Little Gray Pixel, who won the family 4 pack to the LA Auto Show! Please email me at with your address, and I'll send over your tickets right away. Thanks to everyone who participated (and to for helping me decide).

CC and I had a fuel-injected blast at last year's LA Auto Show, and we're looking forward to cruising down to the Los Angeles Convention Center to check out electric, concept and just plain wacky cars at this year's Nov. 18-27 event.

What's great about the LA Auto Show is that it appeals to grown-ups and tykes alike. While I enjoyed getting to climb inside some of my favorite cars (hello, Volvo XC60!) and pretend that I could just walk off with a new one, CC liked visiting the Kids' Fun Zone, where she was able to play with an iPad, ride in mini Police cars and play games with other kiddos.

And, if you're a "Mission Impossible" fan, you'll also be able to check out the BMW i8 concept car, which will be featured in the upcoming Tom Cruise movie.

I know H would love to go -- he's been wanting to for years but things keep getting in the way!

I need a new car! And can't decide between the Yaris, Accent, Rio5, or Fiesta.

I'd love to win just so I can give them to me dad and brothers, get them out of the house and have some fun. They are car fanatics and it would be nice for them to get a break from working so much! I'm sure they'd like to check out all the concept cars and wish they could take one home.
