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 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 Northeast International Auto Show, produced by Motor Trend and held at the Rhode Island Convention Center from January 27 to 30 (up to a $9 value, depending on age).
The Northeast International Auto Show features cars from across the entire automotive spectrum, including new models from major manufacturers and cutting-edge pre-production models. Need-for-speeders can spot the 2012 Ford Focus, the alternative-fueled Chevrolet Volt, and other upcoming autos, giving spectators a chance to see the future of cars so they're not surprised when propeller-driven minivans hit the market in 2013. View vehicles from autowrights such as Ford, Buick, and GMC, including the Chevy SLP ZL 585 Camaro, one of only 500 of its supercharged ilk. Attendees will also receive a chance to win a rare 1969 Calypso Coral High Performance Boss 302, as well as a matching 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302, or check out Bob Tasca III and his Funny Car during an autograph signing on Saturday. Consult the venue map in advance to chart the most efficient course between each four-wheeled wonder.
Admission to the Northeast International Auto Show is free for kids 6 and younger, in honor of their role as America's most prolific drivers.
