Sure looked like a lot of public transportation, bike lanes, and electric vehicles. Not to mention all the CRXs I saw in perfect condition - no winter road salt!!!

An what's the deal with all the old VW busses out there? There were one zillion of them! Do they still make them in Mexico and sneak em across the border?
That's funny you should mention public transportation in LA. It is notoriously lacking in scope. The subway is nearly useless because it never goes where you want it to (it doesn't go to ANY of the local airports), and the buses take forever to get you anywhere.

The one thing I've noticed though it that there are Priuses everywhere you look and also it seems like there is a noticeable drop in traffic in general (after the prices of gas went through the roof).

VW busses are really popular. I have a friend who has had a number of them. They are perfect for camping. I think that's why they're so popluar.
