The 96th Greater Los Angeles Auto Show, Saturday through Jan. 16 at the Convention Center downtown, will showcase scores of production and concept vehicles, including the 2000 Panoz Esperante, left. The Georgia builder’s next-generation roadster has an aluminum body and a 320-horsepower Ford SVT V-8. Right: The Cadillac EldoRODo is a custom concept shown off by Keith Nattrass, a GM assistant brand manager. Huntington Beach-based California Street Rods chopped and channeled a 2000 Eldorado touring coupe to sit 4 inches lower and tilted the window glass front and rear an extra 10 degrees to fit the lowered roof line. Background: a classic ’59 Cadillac convertible.
