My how things have changed!

You all know that we usually have had readers send us photos of the auto shows one day early in the past and can we say that the manufacturers and show brass weren't exactly happy to say the least!

In the case of the 2008 NY Auto Show, I was thrown out of the show because a READER posted photos early.

Well, that backfired on the NY auto show PR people like Chris Sams because we ended up getting the most page views ever in one day after it was reported that I was tossed from the show.

Well fast forward to 2010.

For six years running has been the number one auto site in the world for auto show news, coverage and photos.

Google ranks number one for auto show photos

And the photos that make the front of the galleries usually get the most views.

So finally, after trying to show these guys the exposure is the BEST THING EVER for them, they have started to personally INVITE US IN EARLY because they WANT the buzz around THEIR cars, NOT the competitions!

Don't believe me? check out the photo from today with the OFFICIAL wristband that allows you into the show.

Finally after years of us trying to make the virtual world of auto news the ultimate customer experience we're actually making PROGRESS!!!

Another wall has come down.

Good for us, good for them, good for the the advertisers, good for business and even better for you.

Keeping looking back at the gallery often because we add photos as the news and shots break.

The Spies are PUMPED because we LOVE seeing you all SPY before you BUY!

This year's LA Auto Show is sponsored by Lexus.
