There's no mention of diesel cars. I think TDI owners should go to the rally and provide some political education to the organizers, who may not know that diesels are a viable gas-saving alternative.
Saturday, January 10, 12:00 Noon
Downtown Los Angeles
Assemble at St. Vincent's Church Parking Lot, Adams and Figueroa (entrance on Figueroa), 1 mile south of Convention Center; then drive together to the Los Angeles Convention Center, 1201 S. Figueroa
Breaking Our Oil Addiction IS NOT Rocket Science: Show the Gas-Guzzlers What They Could Be Driving
The LA Auto Show is a premier event for the auto industry, a chance for the car makers to show off their new models and get the public excited about their products. But when it comes to improving fuel efficiency and breaking America's deadly addiction to oil, most major car companies have very little to boast about.
Drivers of gasoline-electric hybrid vehicles know it doesn't have to be this way. Using proven technologies, hybrid vehicles get double the gas mileage of the average car on the road. As the growing number of hybrids on the road proves, breaking our oil addiction is not rocket science. The technologies for change exist; it's the will that's lacking.
On Saturday, January 10, environmentalists, human rights groups, and public transit advocates will hold a rally at the LA Auto Show to demand a doubling of average car fleet gas mileage and a doubling of the number of buses in LA.
Hybrid drivers will join them to show the positive alternatives that exist on the roads today and to build public awareness about the promise of hybrid vehicles. If you or anyone you know drives a hydrid, please invite them to this important event.

Re: TDI and Hybrid Owners, Unite!: Rally & Parade at 12 Noon, LA Auto Show (Sling Shot)

The environmental movement and the "green car" types are very anti-diesel. Trying to ecucate them on modern diesel technology is
. They have to educate themselves.

Yeah. If diesel cars arent invited, I am not liable to go, unless there is a big group of TDI drivers ready to show up with me. As much as I believe in the cause, I dont feel like getting verbally bashed by a bunch of
Prius drivers. Nice idea though, but a little late if it has to be done by 12 noon today.
