LA Auto Show: Nissan, 370Z, Cube, etc

Besides accosting a Japanese exec from nissan to tell him to bring the Note to NA (he told me to get a Cube, but I said I wanted easy parking and didn't have a family, and he understood and told me he'd report to his superiors but we didn't exchange business cards so ultimately I failed in my desire to make japanese contacts), I took some pictures of the stuff Nissan had out.

The day actually began with a speech from the CEO on the future of cars and Nissan. Here's what's important from that:
-industry consolidation will occur
-short term thinking will dominate through the recession
-emerging markets are the new focus
-2.5 billion cars by 2050
-electric is the future

Okay, pictures.


Demo of their new manual for people who can't downshift.


OMG it's about to start. It was very loud and flashy

There may be more but I haven't resized all my photos yet (been doing it manually).

More show pictures to come!

Any nissan questions? I have lots of press materials and can always ask tomorrow.
