Although a relatively small auto show in the grand scheme of things, the Orange County Auto Show had until this year been known as the California International Auto Show. Made us wonder what they could possibly think the much larger and much more important Los Angeles show should be called. California Intergalactic Motorized Conveyance Show maybe? But the OC Auto Show has a lot going for it, and the new name for its 10th year was intended to put the focus back on the importance of this market. After all, there are nearly 11 million fairly affluent customers in this area and several auto manufacturers have design studios and headquarters within a stone's throw of the Anaheim Convention Center where this event is held. Although light on big debuts, this week's show saw the world premier of the first hybrid from Nissan, the West Coast launch of the Lamborghini LP640, as well as the introduction of a trio of "new" Lincolns. In addition, a fleet of fuel cell cars from various manufacturers was present for demonstration rides on Friday. We had it all covered and offer up some pics of some of the highlights.
