Took some pics at the LA Auto Show yesterday. Z06 looks really cool.

OP what'd you think of the show?

I went in 2019 pre-pandemic and really enjoyed it at that time. But this year was disappointing. Porsche had the same display area which was cool, but a lot of brands were missing and there was a lot of empty space. Alfa just had a little spot in the back corner with a handful of cars. I think Land Rover stole the show. I enjoyed sitting in the new Range Rover.

Overall I'm not going back in the future unless some automakers return.

We go every year. My son (and usually me, too) loves it. Was disappointing coming off 2019 when I got my first look at the RS6 and all the other best brands were in attendance. The Broncos were cool I thought. The Wagoneer was hideous. Land Rover section for sure had the most “wow” after maybe Porsche and Z06 Corvette.

I’ll be back next year. Hopefully the other brands join me.

My Son and I went yesterday and that Z06 was simply amazing (we came back with pics similar to yours)- I am not a corvette fan but that car has turned me into one and I want it (I'm 50 so maybe that's my midlife crisis car )

ps- my other take-away was thanks to EV vehicles the indoor test rides and their tracks were pretty cool (we didn't participate but watched)

If your not in the mid-life crisis, you will be by the time you get that Z-06. Lol
