Although the price of gas has gone up in recent years, driving is still cheaper than chartering a team of Clydesdales and snobbish sled dogs that refuse to make engine-vrooming noises. Celebrate America's favorite canine alternative with today's Groupon: for $4, you get one ticket good for one day’s admission to the South Carolina International Auto Show, produced by Motor Trend Auto Shows and held at the Carolina First Center January 14–16 (up to a $8 value, depending on age).
The South Carolina International Auto Show features cars from across the entire automotive spectrum—classics and new models from major manufacturers, preproduction models from Ford and Chevy, and alternative fuel autos such as the Chevrolet Volt. View vehicles from autowrights such as Honda, Subaru, Buick, and Dodge. Chevy's 2011 American Pride Camaro sports an airbrushed finish depicting iconic American figures such as military servicemen and former U.S. presidents, including President Abraham Lincoln and President Bald Eagle. Consult the venue map in advance to chart the most efficient course between each four-wheeled wonder.
Admission to the South Carolina International Auto Show is free for kids 6 and younger, in honor of their role as America's most prolific drivers. Children ages 7–12 also enter free with a paying adult on Sunday, January 16.
