AutoCon LA 2016 - Top 20

Super Street Online logo Super Street Online 4/28/2016 Sam Du, Jofel Tolosa, Lu Tran

AutoCon celebrated its seventh anniversary this year and we have to applaud everything the organization has accomplished thus far. From starting out as a parking lot meet, to expanding into a full-blown show series, the contribution AutoCon has brought to the community has made it one of the best things to happen in Southern California. AutoCon isn't all about mega car shows either, having successfully put on charity toy drives year after year, raising hundreds of thousands of dollars. But we're here to talk about their main event, AutoCon LA 2016, which simply killed it!

Research

The biggest news in '16 was AutoCon's relocation from Pomona Fairplex to the Los Angeles Convention Center, right in the heart of downtown. An enthusiast-driven car show hasn't been fortunate enough to host an event there since the early days of Hot Import Nights; however, AutoCon did not disappoint, and came out strong with nearly 400 of the scene's hottest rides. One of the things we admire most about each AutoCon show is the stage setup, which allows select car owners to educate spectators about their build as well as answer questions - something we haven't seen any other major tuner show in North America do.

With a great track record, strong reputation in the community, and their dedication to stepping up their events every year, it's no mystery why we consider AutoCon one of the top shows in California. Remember to check out our other AutoCon articles:
