LOS ANGELES -- People at this year's Greater Los Angeles Auto Show may find it easy to forget about rising gas prices, international instability and smog while checking out the luxury SUVs, supercharged muscle cars and stylish roadsters.

The show, which opens Saturday, is the first major international show of the year and typically features production vehicles and concepts that appeal to California trend- setters.

The show traditionally serves as a showcase for automakers looking to tap into the consciousness and wallets of people concerned about greenhouse gases and dependence on foreign oil.
