McDreamy & McSteamy (pic lifted from Ford)
It’s already that time of year again — fantasy car shopping time. Seems like just yesterday we had an L.A. auto show, or rather January of this year. I’ve always done these in the daytime but now that I see it’s open til 10 most nights, I’m thinking this would be fun to do first and then head up the street to Figueroa Hotel‘s Veranda Bar or even the Golden Gopher for drinks and wishful thinking after. And hopefully that way you’d avoid the crowds (read: families) and actually get to sit in your dream cars uninterrupted. Mine is obviously the Giugiaro-designed Mustang above but I don’t know if we’re allowed to sit in it, let alone play with those scissor doors. Boo.
For those of you interested in going, I have a couple of comp tickets to the show. The catch is you’d have to arrange to pick ’em up from me and you can only go during certain hours of the day, like not the popular times between 12 and 4 on the weekends.
I just have two so I’m going to play favorites and give ’em to the first of my regular commenters who emails me first. All others can still email me at caro @ carolineoncrack.com just in case all three of my commenters aren’t interested. Not quick on the draw? You can still purchase tickets online or at the show for $10.
