Did you miss our coverage of the LA 2009: Maximum Bob, Maximum Live Blog
We're here in the City of Angels to watch Fritz Henderson deliver GM's keynote address to all us media types here at LA Auto Show. Only thing is, Fritz resigned yesterday, and for some reason interim CEO Ed Whitacre will not be delivering the keynote. Which can only mean one thing -- GM's Vice Chairman of Marketing and Communications Bob Lutz will be delivering the opening address. LA 2009: Ford Taurus and Volvo XC60 named International Car and Truck of the Year

LA 2009: Audi A3 TDI named 2010 Green Car of the Year in diesel repeat
At the LA Auto Show this morning, the Audi A3 TDI was crowned the 2010 Green Car of the Year, wresting the title away from last year's winner, the Volkswagen Jetta TDI. Even though three hybrids made this year's list of finalists, the A3's win marks the second year in a row that a TDI diesel car ... LA 2009: Lexus LFA wireframe cutaway wows us
Wow. Lexus brought their new LFA supercar to the LA Auto Show this year. That might not seem particularly wow-worthy, but it definitely becomes more surprising when you hear that they actually brought an LFA and a half. While a white LFA was happily humming along, spinning slowly on a rotating ... "Viridian Joule" picked as winner of Chevy Volt Paint Color Contest
The votes have been cast, the tallies tallied and the winner determined: Viridian Joule will be the official name of the silvery-green hue as seen on a slew of Chevrolet Volt marketing material for what seems like the last decade or so. So, um, what does Viridian Joule mean? We'll let the winner ...

      Just wanted to say that I really like how the cars were presented on the main page. The clean look really made it easier to get the best news all in one place. Good job.

      This years LA auto show was pretty boring. I was hoping to hear news about the new Mustang GT with the 5.0 for 2011? Well there is always the Motorcycle show in Long Beach this weekend.

      Auto show was great. Had to stop reading all the coverage otherwise it would have all felt old before I got there. Missed the Toyota FT-86 though.

      Ford had the most exciting set up and area, Toyota the most bland (Where was the FT-86 people?). Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep (surprise, surprise), the most depressing.

      Work of art passing itself off as a car: SLS AMG.

      Kudos to the Mazda people for furthering the RX-7 rumours and the free Zoom-Zoom energy drinks. Would have liked to see the miata history display they had at the Japanese show.

      Dug the inlusion of the bikes in the BMW and Suzuki area.
