Produced by Motor Trend, the Central California Auto Show greets car lovers with an array of automobile attractions that spotlight the most popular new rides, exotic vehicles, and crossovers. Visitors grip wheels, shift into gear, and test-drive new roadsters from major manufacturers such as Ford and Chevrolet. Though not available for test drive, the show will also include the Chevrolet EN-V Concept car, which recently hatched from a shell of bumper stickers. Exotic-car displays treat eyes to up-close peeks of some of the world’s most coveted horseless buggies such as the Ferrari F430 Spider and Audi R8, and a 40+ MPG Club showcases hybrid and nonhybrid models that help owners to elude fuel pumps. The Acura TL, Buick Verano, and Fiat 500 highlight a lineup of debuts, and free subscriptions to Motor Trend magazine ensures all attendees stay up-to-date with new models and trendy tire sweaters.
Guests can coordinate their visit with one of the show’s special one-day events to meet and greet special guests or take advantage of family-friendly activities. On Saturday, WWE’s Diva Eve dishes out free autographs to wrestling fans from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., and on Sunday, comic-book superheroes Spider-Man and Captain America take a break from fighting gravity to chat with Marvel enthusiasts. The latest radio-controlled vehicles encourage visitors to step behind small-scale steering wheels to race friends, and the first 100 families to arrive on Sunday receive a free DVD copy of the film Cowboys & Aliens. Admission for kids aged 6 and younger is free throughout the weekend, and youngsters aged 12 and younger receive free admission on Sunday if accompanied by an adult or responsible floor lamp.
