Edmonton Motorshow: Top 10 reasons to visit the show

Bright lights, horsepower, performance and seductive new bodies — they’re all part of the top 10 reasons to visit the Edmonton Motorshow, which runs Thursday, April 10, to Sunday, April 13, at the Edmonton Expo Centre.

1. All the cars you want to shop for are in one spot.

2. No pressure — manufacturer’s representatives are there only to provide information about the vehicles.

3. You can see cars and trucks that are not in the dealerships.

4. Interactive show — it’s a great family destination. There’s content for every member of the family, even teenagers. Ford usually has the most interactive exhibit at the show.

5. An auto show where you can also buy a collector car — at the Electric Garage auction.

6. Largest aftermarket and custom section in a Canadian new car show.

7. First commercial section at a Canadian auto show. Nowhere else can you go to see all the commercial vehicles and accessories.

8. Vehicle maintenance displays so car and truck owners can see how to keep their rides looking great. Experts will be on hand to explain how to use various products.

9. It’s not just a trade show, it’s an event. It’s the car nut’s No. 1 destination at this time of year.

10. It’s an opportunity to see the supercharged Dodge Charger from the original The Fast and the Furious movie.
