This past weekend, The Pennsylvania Auto Show featured more than 500 top of the line vehicles, all under one roof. This gave people the opportunity to get a close-up look at the many vehicles on the market, and compare makes and models. The show runs every year, hosted by Motor Trend, and is sponsored by the Harrisburg Automotive Trade Association, as well as The Patriot-News. The Antique Automobile Club of America also displays classic and original cars from its museum.
In 2010, the all-new certified pre-owned section was added. Local dealers get to display a nice selection of their certified pre-owned vehicles inside for sale. This year, the show had its first power sports hall that showcased ATV's, motorcycles, boats, personal watercraft and scooters. The section also had an ATV simulator that is designed to teach rider safety techniques.
There were also contests you could enter in to win a new car, plenty of materials on the various makes and models of vehicles, as well as a $500,000 Rolls-Royce that was showcased in the luxury hall. Of course, we were there, showing off Honda’s line-up of vehicles, which included the all-new 2014 Civic. Overall, the show was well-done; you even got to leave with a free issue of Motor Trend magazine in your hand.
