There are plenty of stars cars on display in the Los Angeles convention centre - and some decidedly odd ones

Motor shows aren't all about new cars, or even purely about machinery that you'll see on the road during your daily commute. And that was proven by some of the machinery on display at this year's Los Angeles motor show.

From restored classics and barn finds, to wacky one-off creations - with a few weird 1970s dragsters and custom forklift trucks thrown in - there was bizarre machinery spread throughout the Los Angeles convention centre.

The 'other' cars and no

The 'other' cars and no trucks and trailers? Meh. Although, they are not so popular and not needed for common drivers. I'm interested in car shipping and I like everything related to it. I read on about new car haulers which have special designs. They look really good. It's said they are designed with the help of true operators which is definitely an advantage.

I wish car shows related to

I wish car shows related to trucks, haulers were as popular as common shows. There are so many things to present actually.

Why isn't the Ford Ecosport dead yet?

Surely it is the most ugly, awkward and ill designed Ford for many decades - well since the Bug-eyed Scorpio at least?
