L.A. Auto Show: The Rundown

I made it back to the East Coast in one piece (despite filling up another few barf bags….I hate flying) and even though I haven’t had a chance to fully recharge my human batteries, I’m back to the grind already.

Let’s start the day off with a wrap-up of the sustainable sights from the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show. But before I do that, I’d like to give a big shout out to Susanna Schick for giving me a couch to crash on, and absolutely busting her ass to help me bring you news from the show. So big props to Susanna (I’ll pat myself on the back later.)

And that is it! Hard to believe how much two people can write, but I think we killed it. How about you, dear readers? Did you like our coverage? What else would you like to have seen from our coverage? We’re always looking to improve…though for now I think we both earned a nice, long nap.
