Ontario, Calif. (PRWEB) May 05, 2014
With a nod to the future and a wave from the past, THE AUTO SHOW Inland Empire will feature cars both new and old from automakers the world over when it comes to the Ontario Convention Center May 16-18.
Twenty-two different manufacturers will be represented along with cars from The Petersen Museum, The Day Family Museum, private collector exotics, hot rods, race cars and more.
The fun is not only on the inside but the outside as well with four different ride and drives, food trucks with adjacent dining areas, a SWAT vehicle, an antique fire truck and even a display of RVs.
“We wanted to make the show as diverse and interesting outside as it is inside,” said show producer Stacey Castle of Castle Communications, Inc., "though the main focus will continue to be the awe-inspiring technological advances of new 2014-2015 model cars.”
Manufacturers represented are: Acura, BMW, Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Ford, Honda, Hyundai, Jeep, Mazda, Mini, Nissan, Ram, Scion, Subaru, Toyota, and Volkswagen. Exotics from Bentley, Ferrari, Lamborghini and Rolls Royce will also be on display.
Some 2015 models never-before seen in Southern California include the hot new Ford Mustang with its all new V8 EcoBoost engine, Jeep’s redesigned Renegade, the Honda Fit, and the Chrysler 200. Other hot new cars also in the show include the Dodge Viper SRT and the smile-inducing NV200 Nissan Taxi.
Show-goers will also have the opportunity to test drive cars on-site from Ford, Subaru, Toyota and Volkswagen.
“While the new cars and the exotics represent the present and the future of the automobile, we’ll once again be paying tribute to cars through history,” said Castle. The Petersen Museum will have a special display which will include a 1931 Cord L29 Pheaton and 1953 Nash Healy Roadster, and the Day Family Museum in Corona is also sending some one-of-a-kind cars including the Looney Tunes NASCAR Pace Car and a unique 1966 Mustang Roadster Convertible. A Route 66 display will feature hot rods and classics.
Family-friendly fun abound at THE AUTO SHOW Inland Empire with the Kid Zone by TrueCar which features a kids' play area as well as a CHP community display featuring a retired vintage CHP Mustang and activities for the little ones. On Saturday, the Southern California PGA will be teeing-up a hands-on golfing experience for kids and adults alike.
Bring your appetite as four food trucks will be on site daily including Baconmania, The Grilled Cheese Truck and Viking Food Truck (see website for complete food truck schedule).
