L.A. Auto Show Sets Opening Weekend Attendance Record

    LOS ANGELES, Jan. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Southern Californians confirmed their
 passion for the automobile in record numbers during the opening weekend of the
 2002 Greater Los Angeles Auto Show.  The opening weekend generated nearly an
 additional 20 percent increase in attendance over the 2001 show.
     "We were astounded by the significant increase in attendance.  Not in our
 wildest dreams did we envision such a surge," said Andy Fuzesi, general
 manager of the L.A. Auto Show.  "The jump in attendance may be a good
 indicator for renewed confidence in the future of our economy and nation."
     Consumers from throughout the Southland filled the manufacturer exhibits
 to check out the newest models.  For many, the highlight was the more than two
 dozen production and concept vehicles that made their World or North American
 debut just days earlier to journalists attending the auto show's Media Days.
     Amid the festive atmosphere were new security measures that not only
 increased safety and confidence, but improved traffic flow within the
 convention center's multiple halls.  The record 347,734 visitors were
 appreciative of the added police presence and bag checks upon entering the
 show.
 
     The L.A. Auto Show continues daily through Sunday, Jan. 13 at the Los
 Angeles Convention Center.
