Members of the public got their first close-up looks at the dizzying array of vehicles on the Convention Center floor Friday and took to Twitter to share their experiences.

The show has been heavily promoted across social-media networks by its organizers, carmakers and media outlets. Nearly every new model launch was live tweeted by auto company reps and images quickly uploaded to their Facebook pages.


Now, with the car reps largely back in Detroit, it’s the public’s turn to post their opinions and recommendations to Twitter using the show’s official hashtags #laas and #laautoshow. Here’s a selection that we’ll keep updating throughout the day.
