    2018 L.A. Auto Show . . .

    Gotta kinda late start --- ~0730-ish . . . and/so were treated to L.A. Friday-AM traffic. Woulda taken pics, but . . .

    . . . nothing to really show/tell. Every time I'm in a mess like that, I know why I left. Get the heebie-geebies jus' thinkin' about it


    Anyways --- swung by The Pantry . . . did the 'number 2' --- = ham (sorry, piggies --- I was expecting chicken), eggs (over-easy), a foothill of potatoes (dosed with a consonant amount of sriracha + bad judgement), pancakes (w/ syrup, 'course) + coupla glasses of milk . . . left looking/feeling a lot like a zeppelin . . . + just as explosive . . . maybe more

    I'm sure some of those calories are still stuck to my circulatory system. Oh well --- once every other year . . .

    And, after wandering over to the West Hall, made our entrance . . .



    . . . where The Porsche Palace beckoned



    Didn't stay long. Not much to see . . .

    . . . no Caymans or Boxsters, no GT3s or 4s . . .


    . . . just the Panamera GTS + 'New 911'

    Zzzzzzzzzzzz


    All 'at's missing from their line-up now? . . .

    . . . is a pick-up truck




    With product like this? ---- Singer will be in business FOR EVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEER

    Think this car was previously critiqued, here?

    Couldn't get close enough for an ID, but is this the car that was restored by Porsche Classic?


    Anyways --- niiiiiiice touch w/ the surf board . . .


    . . . only ever see these mounted at car shows


    And what's with the glass barrier?

    Excepting their 996 GT3.2, Porsches have pretty-much been off my shopping list since they went water-cooled --- prolly earlier . . .

    I like to think of Porsche cars as something simple/smart/elegant/elemental . . .

    . . . so, to see them now evolving into this . . .




    . . . hhhhh
