NASCAR at L.A." hspace="4" src="http://www.weblogsinc.com/common/images/8313188218707398.JPG?0.48091760167561964" width="425" align="top" vspace="4" border="1" />
USA Today ran a piece from the floor of the L.A. Auto Show about the art of revealing new car models at a car show. It's an interesting read for those of you who have never gotten the chance to experience one in real life. Personally I find them pretty lame. The best ones are when the executive comes out says why the car is great and the curtain drops revealing a car. There's no need to bust through a fake brick wall or come climbing down a fake mountain. Just show the car on a podium and let everyone get up close and personal. Will any reporters be impressed that Jeff Gordon and Dale Earnhardt Jr. drove the cars out? Well maybe a few. But that doesn't make the new Monte Carlo any better of a car now does it?
