AUTO CENTRAL- For the third straight year, THE AUTO CHANNEL Internetwork,, will present exclusive wall-to-wall Media Days coverage from America's two most important automotive expositions: the Greater Los Angeles Auto Show, and the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

Porsche, BMW, Rolls Royce, Volkswagen, Ford, Subaru, DeTomaso, Saleen, Daewoo, DaimlerChrysler and Lincoln are among the manufacturers scheduled to unveil new vehicles or significant updates. Friday's broadcast will conclude with a one hour panel discussion between many of the world's foremost automotive designers. This session is part of the Southern California-based Art Center College of Design's involvement at the LA Auto Show, which is highlighted by a custom-designed and multi-faceted exhibit that features more than 30 scale models, original drawings and design studies by graduating students.
