As with past OC Auto Shows, the 2010 version allows visitors to check out the newest GMCs, Fords, Buicks, Chevys and Toyotas without being hassled by pushy salesmen.
Those who enter the Anaheim Convention Center Thursday through Sunday can also be among the first people in the nation to drive the new LEAF, which Nissan bills as "the first 100% electric, no gas, no tailpipe vehicle."

Another must-see vehicle at the carvention will be the Chevrolet Silverado ZR2 Concept, which the presenting Motor Trend Auto Shows describes as follows:
With a widened body and 35-inch-tall off-road tires, this truck is ready to hit the berms, dry washes and gullies of the Baja Peninsula. Featuring carbon fiber inside and out, and a 550-horsepower supercharged engine, this is one tough truck.
Show hours are: 4-10 p.m. Thursday; noon-10 p.m. Friday; 9 a.m.-10 p.m. Saturday; 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are: $10 for those ages 13-61; $6 for those 62 and over; $5 for students with identification; and free for those under 12 (who'd better have their learner permits handy).
