Erie Auto Show Returns by Tracy Geibel

Thursday, Feb. 2

The Erie Auto Show is revving up for its 10th year at the Bayfront Convention Center.

Presented by the Automobile Association of Erie County and the Erie Times-News, the Erie Auto Show features 26 local auto dealers and at least 25 additional vendors.

Guests are welcome to explore the more than 100 new models brought by local dealers and to admire over 50 antique and muscle cars. But the highlight of the weekend is the custom-made replica of the Pontiac Trans Am that was used in the 1977 hit movie Smokey and the Bandit. (At last year’s show, a Batmobile replica was the featured attraction.)

Over the course of four evenings, two detailing packages valued at $250 will be raffled off to lucky visitors who purchase tickets.

Attendees can also gather auto-related information from various vendors like Kyle’s Real Audio, National Fuel Gas, and Off Road Express.

It’s a family-friendly event that promises a great time for guests of all ages; it definitely won’t be a burnout. – Tracy Geibel
