Jan. 31, 1910: Some grand old names of the past are at the auto show, like Packard and Pierce-Arrow. Buick and Cadillac seem to be about the only survivors. The first Los Angeles auto show was held in 1907 at Morley's Rink, Grand Avenue between 9th and 10th streets. It was the first auto show on the West Coast and the largest west of Chicago. Of the 99 cars on display, two were electric and the rest were powered by gasoline.  Fiesta Park, where the show was held in 1910, was at 12th and Grand.
