In the Driver's Seat at the LA Auto Show + Giveaway

UPDATE: Congrats to Ruth, who won the 4-pack of tickets to the LA Auto Show! Thanks to all who participated!

CC tried her best to hop into the driver's seat of big cars, small cars, super-small cars, electric cars and even a Bat car this weekend at the LA Auto Show, parked through Nov. 28 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Aside from the Bat car, pictured in the photo gallery above, she basically managed everything else.

It didn't matter that she has a few years yet before she scores her official California driver's license (unlike the Legoland version she mistakes for the real thing), she was happy to let grown-ups of all ages wait their turns while she nabbed her chance behind the wheel.

Aside from my wish-list cars (Hello, Volvo XC90, right, and Volvo XC60!), we also got up close and personal with the adorable two-seater Smart car, the super-wee Tango Commuter Car (also pictured in the above gallery) that is literally one-person wide, a truck with an electric grill in the back, an electric concept car from Saab and a $250,000 sports car from Audi that I told CC not to touch -- which she then, of course, touched.

The one car she actually got to drive was a mini Dodge police car (pictured in the above gallery), which sported flashing lights and doors that opened and closed. One of the many tyke-friendly attractions at the Nissan Quest Kids' Fun Zone, the tough-stuff car allowed CC to really put the pedal to the metal.

All of the fun without the speeding tickets!

Note: Press tickets provided.
