Showcasing the Four-wheeled Thunders
Yet another dazzling auto show took place on February 7 in Philadelphia. The show was on its 113th year and it unveiled some of the most fascinating vehicles America has ever seen! The spacious 650,000 square foot Pennsylvania Convention Center is more than the size of 11 football fields put together! There were over 700 cars of about 40 different brands under one roof.
Prior to this, the American auto industry kicked off in 2014 with a huge auto show in Detroit, where 12 new cars of top brands made their debut. Some of those cars were the General Motors’ 2015 Canyon, Toyota’s FT-1, BMW’s 2015 M3 Sedan, the M4 Coupe, the 2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe and the 2015 Chrysler 200.
The Giant is back in its groove
The U.S. auto market is making bigger strides and had its fifth straight year of growth. This is the only time that this has happened since World War II. The industry has made a strong recovery from the recession and is set for bigger glories. In 2014, the estimated production of new cars and light trucks went up to 16.1 million, as a recent survey revealed.

Auto Show in San Diego
The city of San Diego hosted the ‘Annual San Diego International Auto Show’ in January of 2014.
You could see the spark and dream in people’s eyes at the venue as they checked out the wide range of vehicles that were on display. There were over 400 vehicles showcased by nearly three-dozen manufacturers.
One of the most talked about vehicles in the show was the electric car launched by BMW. The car (the BMW i3) can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in just seven seconds! Among the other vehicles that caught people’s attention were the Mercedes E250, the GMC Sierra pickup, and the Hyundai Sonata. There was also a special attraction on ‘Ford Family Day’; there was free entry for kids on Sunday with themes like Spiderman and Thor.
The auto shows aren’t only for checking out cool cars; it’s also about how to keep them safe. We saw how hurricane Sandy slammed some parts of the U.S causing damage to a large number of vehicles. It was a wakeup call for the authorities so now they have a robust disaster plan in place.
During storm and flood, plenty of vehicles got damaged that their owners couldn’t repair. These vehicles have been put up for auction on several big auction sites. Buying those vehicles could be a cost-effective option for people who are looking for utility vehicles. Furthermore, taking part in an online bidding process is an exciting and fascinating experience!
