Amid all the hoopla surrounding the Los Angeles Auto Show's bigger events, like the world debut of Porsche's Cayman , Toyota's RAV4 or Jaguar bringing sexy (and powerful) back, Volvo would kindly like you not to forget it exists. To help you out, the company will be bringing to the L.A. show the S60 Polestar Concept. It cranks out a whopping 508 horsepower and 424 pound-feet of torque from a turbocharged, inline six-cylinder engine similar to the one in the all-wheel-drive production S60 we tested in 2010 (which has 300 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque in stock form)

The Galaxy Concert Theatre, a staple of the live-music scene in Orange County for 13 years, is closing at the end of February, and new owners will debut an uber-nightclub in the Santa Ana space on June 1. Gary Folgner, the Galaxy owner who also runs the Coach House in San Juan Capistrano, could not immediately be reached for comment. The Galaxy's transition will not affect the Coach House. A spokesperson for the Mor Project, a new restaurant/nightclub management group helmed by Anton Posniak, said the 25,000-square-foot club called RevolveR would cater to upscale clubgoers, offering multiple rooms of entertainment, myriad VIP areas, fireplaces, indoor/outdoor seating and eight full-service bars.

Things are a bit dry at the Volvo well at the moment. The automaker, which was bought by Chinese brand Geely in 2010, won't have a completely new product until 2015 . That's when the next-generation XC90 SUV is due, which will finally replace the long-in-the-tooth model that's been around since 2003. This dearth of new sheet metal has hurt Volvo's sales in the U.S. Through October, annual sales are down nearly 7% compared to the first 10 months of 2012. Despite this decline, 2013 sales are about the same as Jaguar's.

Once the icon of stodgy sensibility, the Volvo station wagon went out of production after the 2011 model year. Now its back, as a “sports wagon” variant of the existing S60 sedan, the automaker announced at the 2013 New York International Auto Show. “The V60 builds on our wagon heritage,” Volvo Cars of North America Chief Executive John Maloney said in a statement. “And this time, we've added sophistication with the dynamic driving performance of a sedan.” PHOTOS:   Highlights of the 2013 New York Auto Show A high-performance version, the V60 R-Design, made its world debut Thursday at the 2013 New York Auto Show.

A government report Wednesday showing tamer consumer price increases suggested that inflation could be peaking as the economy and housing market slow. For more evidence of that trend, look at lumber. Home builders, contractors, remodelers and others who buy lumber should get some relief at the cash register soon -- if not already -- thanks in part to the slackening housing market. "The prices aren't going up," said Asher Alfasi, a general contractor who runs Northridge-based B.A.R.
