‘L.A. Lit and Toy Show’ Shop Tours Bring You to Porsche Extravagance

By -

Returning for its 36th edition, SoCal event connects guests with L.A.’s finest Porsche shops by the busload on March 2.

As you know, The L.A. Lit and Toy Show is landing in the ballrooms of the LAX Hilton in Los Angeles on March 2, drawing thousands of guests to scope out tons of Porsche and vintage Volkswagen memorabilia, toys, literature, and, of course, parts to complete the Porsche project in your garage.

But if you’re in town a few days before, though, what is there to do? The Lit Show has you covered with its beloved shop tours, which will bring you and at least nine others to some of L.A.’s greatest Porsche shops, one bus at a time.


According to the Lit Show organizers, “the goal is to create an enjoyable, relaxing way for folks unfamiliar with the hustle and flow of Los Angeles traffic to see the Porsche shops in the area.” Per their “very tentative schedule,” the 2019 shop tours will cover every corner of LA possible every day between February 28 and March 2.

On the first day of the shop tours, you can either head north to visit TRE Motorsports and Sierra Madre Collection et al, or go south to check out CPR Classic Restoration and Benton Performance, among other shops. The second day “hits the high points in the Torrance and South Bay areas of the L.A. Basin,” such as Callas Rennsport and Willhoit Auto Restorations, while the final day of the shop tours, taking place after The Lit Show ends, means a visit to CarparcUSA and Liberty Motorsports in Costa Mesa, or an afternoon at Emory Motorsports in North Hollywood.

Nearly all of the 2019 Lit Show shop tours are $70 per person, except for the afternoon at Emory Motorsports, which is only $50 per person. Spots on the bus are first-come, first-served, and the tours must have at least 10 guests per bus by February 14. Get all the details here.
