Before the doors officially opened at the LA Auto Show this morning, we spotted the Nissan Altima Hot Rod, our old friend from SEMA. With nothing much to do but awit for the doors to open, we snapped a few shots and marveled at the slick leaf-shaped dual exhaust pipes. The leaf logos emblazoned in the hood were another not-so-subtle touch to let everyone who sees this car know that it's green (just look at the paint job). Ready for E85 and with a solar panel on the roof, this is one green race car. More details here.
