Meet New Car-Lovin’ People

Obviously, if someone is at a car show, they love cars as much or more than you or someone in your family does. They will have interesting stories to tell and even cooler cars to show you. You can learn more about cars than your brain can handle if you find the right people.

Seattle International Auto Show

Seattle, as always, does car shows a little differently.

Subaru will be hosting an auto show pet adoption in line with their philanthropy projects which may be helpful for those who are bringing attendees who aren’t super interested in cars. No one can deny a good puppy. There will also be a family fun zone that allows kiddos and parents alike to test out driving simulators and video games. The Seattle Auto Show won’t disappoint with its interactive exhibits either as attendees can crawl in and around military vehicles and simulators. Don’t forget to meet Hank the Robot, too!
