The invention of the wheel was man’s greatest achievement until the invention of the three other wheels and 14 cup holders that made the automobile possible.

Produced by Motor Trend Auto Shows, the Central Florida International Auto Show greets car lovers with an array of automotive attractions that highlight the most popular new rides, exotic vehicles, and classic models. Visitors grip wheels, shift into gear, and test drive vehicles from manufacturers such as Toyota, Kia, Hyundai, and Chrysler, including the next generation of the whisper-quiet Prius. Exotic-car displays treat eyes to up-close peaks of some of the world’s most coveted steel steeds. Preproduction model displays showcase the next step in vehicular advancements such as the 2013 Ford Taurus, which is actually the 2012 Ford Taurus strapped to a trove of sled dogs. The Antique Automobile Club, known as Model A’s of Greater Orlando, brandishes a battalion of old-timey Fords and presents a flourish of antiquated pickup trucks, bench-seat cruisers, and hybrid horse-drawn buggies. Hank the Ford Robot comes to life to entertain crowds, and every visitor receives a one-year subscription to Motor Trend magazine or a year of high-fives from Hank.
Families can coordinate their visit to overlap with Kids’ Day on November 27, which admits children younger than 12 free with a paying adult. Spider Man and Captain America will be situated at the show, flashing smiles at guests when not rescuing babies stuck in the bathroom line. Admission to the auto show is free for children 6 and younger, $3 for kids 7–12, and $5 for students with an ID, senior citizens, and military personnel with any Department of Defense ID.
