Los Angeles Auto show - 2011
I could finally manage to take out some time on a Sunday after-noon and visit the LA Auto Show, that was held from November 18th to November 25th 2011 at the LA Convention Center. It was definitely worth a visit, and I came back impressed with the wide variety of cars on display at the auto show, and clicked quite a few pictures that I would like to share.
