I don't mean to sound so obnoxious but when you hear the words "Auto Show", you expect to see more.
LOL. Remember, you are talking about San Antonio. It will never live up to the L.A. Auto Show.

One good thing is that the SA Auto Show takes place when the new year models are just coming out so you get to see them first hand here.

I agree Benjamin. I have always gone to the SA auto shows,and one year I went to the Chicago auto show and it was amazing!!. It was like a mans playground!! Jeep had a track that you could drive on, that went up a hill and through a little river.

SA never has the upscale luxery cars like Lambo, Range Rover, Bently. No Concepts no fan fare. It's just expensive and not work the money, unless you go to get the cinammon roasted nuts.

It can be a woman's playground too!

Went today and the show was a big disappointment. No Mercedes, No Hyundia or Kia and no VW. But Bently and Aston Martin were there - go figure. It was one of the smallest showings in a while. A complete waste of money. Someone said that it was only opening day...well all the auto manufacturers should and would be already set up by today.

Actually, I did not think the show was that bad although I was disappointed that Mercedes was not there. I am just glad they did not lock the doors of the higher end cars this time like last year. One of my favorites was the Cadillac concept car.

I went to the SA Auto & Truck Show this year, and I saw a few cars from BMW, Aston Martin, and Bentley. The Aston Martin/Bentley display was presented by an Austin dealership. I think about the only concept car I saw there was the new Corvette Stingray concept.
