The Best of the 2009 LA Auto Show
As many of you know I am a big supporter of Ford and can't wait for them to reclaim their crown of top auto sales in North America. The Ford Motor Company unveiled their 2011 Ford Fiesta at the Los Angeles Auto Show, giving small car fans something to look forward to on the domestic front. The Fiesta, a nameplate that some Americans might recall from decades ago (or more recently if they've traveled to Europe in the last few years, where the Fiesta has been a perennial hit), will go on sale next year. Why it's important: With fuel economy standards increasing quickly under the Obama administration, we're likely to see many more small cars. Since automakers are going to have to make money off them, they're likely to be loaded up with features, unlike small econoboxes of yesteryear.
