Car shows, like dog shows, allow prospective buyers the opportunity to check coats for gleam, examine haunches for sturdiness, and rub underbellies for adorability. Have your pick of the litter with today’s Groupon: for $3, you get a one-day ticket to the Indianapolis Auto Show (a $6 value), which runs at the Indiana Convention Center from Sunday, December 26 to Saturday, January 1.
The 97th-annual Indianapolis Auto Show showcases approximately 450 2011-model vehicles from more than 30 global manufacturers. The Indiana Convention Center will offer up 375,000 square feet of exhibit space to serve as a temporary garage to SUVs, trucks, luxury vans, and more, featuring exhibitors that include BMW, Volvo, and Jaguar. Intrepid vehicular fanatics can talk to automotive gurus and inspect futuristic concept cars, allowing a brief glimpse into the future where humans will ride sidesaddle on mechanical horses. Aspiring gear heads under the age of 12 get in for free, and show attendees will have a chance to win a 2011 Toyota RAV4 that their kids can drive once they turn 17 and then win the Noble Peace Prize.
