The buzz on the LA Auto Show floor this morning isn't about 650 HP Mustangs or smokin' booth babes. It's about the Occupy protests.

This booty belongs to none other than the Cadillac XTS, the long, long, long, long, long, long, long, long overdue replacement for the ancient STS/DTS white elephants.

All those years spent pining for the Euro-only Ford Kuga crossover were not in vain for Ford has finely deigned us worthy with the Kuga-twin 2013 Ford Escape. Now we suddenly realize we never really wanted a crossover in the first place. Oh well. Our moms will buy them!
Chrysler is reviving its classic Super Bee and Yellow Jacket monickers at next week's LA Auto Show. Based on the Charger SRT8 and Challenger SRT8 respectively, both cars get a fresh coat of "P***y Magnet" yellow paint, and a slew of badges and similarly-colored interior bits n' pieces.
For next week's LA Auto Show, Honda, Hyundai, Subaru and Mercedes designers let loose with what they imagine the movie cars of the future will look like.
Chevy announced today the most-powerful convertible ever built with a bowtie — the 2013 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 convertible — will debut at next month's LA Auto Show. Because when the good Lord created burnouts, he wanted you to smell 'em too.
