Convention Center, Los Angeles: The Los Angeles Car Show is a big event for the automotive industry. They unveil their new lineup of cars for 2016; old favorites and new concepts that will make you say, “Wow!”

You can see the latest Corvettes from Chevrolet, Mazda with its new generation of the MX-5 Miata. You will also see for the first time the hydrogen fuel cell cars from Toyota and Honda. They run off fuel cells that you refill, so you don’t have to plug them in.
