The L.A. Auto Show features hundreds of new cars, some never before seen. But hidden away in the Los Angeles Convention Center basement "garage" are dozens of custom, classic and one-of-a-kind vehicles that are well worth the visit.
The intrepid auto fan will find hot rods, dragsters, custom Mustangs, sleek Stingrays, custom Bentleys, classic Packards and Studebakers, slammed pickup trucks, lifted four by fours, and dozens of other freaky one-off automotive creations.
Of particular quality is the grand collection presented by Prestone, the automotive products company. You'll find them flanking the underground garage, stretching from corner to corner on opposing walls of the huge basement facility.
So, go downtown for all the new cars at the show, but don't miss the buried treasure in the basement garage.
