With the Los Angeles Auto Show coming up next month, automakers have submitted their entrants for this year's LA Design Challenge. As in prior years, companies have whipped up concept cars that fit a theme representing what's broadly considered to be the Los Angeles lifestyle. Previous winners include the La Salle Fatty Arbuckle's Coke Bottle (1924), the Honda Casablanca Records' Cocaine Budget (1977) and the Volkswagen How Is It That Paulie Shore Keeps Getting Work? (1989). This year's winner will be announced in November at the show. [Gallery]
