Just some of the beauty in LA - Click above for high-res image gallery

With the state of the economy, it didn't come as much of a surprise that manufacturer presence was down at the LA Auto Show this year. The carmakers that did show up, however, brought their "A Game" – mostly. As much as that was true for new vehicle introductions, it also applied to the deployment of booth professionals as well.

Many booths didn't hire models this year, unfortunately, and companies that have traditionally been reliable sources of model employment weren't even here in 2009. We're looking at you, Ferrari, Lamborghini and Maserati. Still, it was nice to see even a few smiling faces while we scoured the darkened halls of the LA Convention Center trying in our obsessive search for postworthy material.

While we didn't encounter many spokesmodels, we did find a lot of beauty in the City of Angels. We've assembled a small gallery of random shots and artsy-fartsy images to give all of you a taste of this year's show from LA. Click below to see our small but satisfying high-res gallery.

      Delete that picture of the one in the red dress (4th from last) and this could possibly be the best post-show gallery. A great combo of the ladies and details of beauties. My order: Brunette, Redhead on her lap and me all in the AMG SLS.

      you want girls, go to a girly show
      you want cars, go to a car show.
      I would prefer a nice, well dressed , knowledgeable person prepared to answer any question related to the car on their podium.

        That would be the folks with microphones. This article is about the requisite eye-candy.
