Auto show rolling into town


Drift into DeVos Place next weekend to take a look at the latest new and vintage cars.

Downtown Grand Rapids is gearing up for the Michigan International Auto Show. Car manufacturers from around the world will bring their finest traveling displays with new vehicles — including sedans, vans, SUVs, trucks, hybrids and sports cars, as well as many of the most recently or soon-to-be released models.

Highlights of the show include the Million Dollar Motorway, which offers an array of exotic, $100,000 or higher vehicles on display.

Attendees also may take a trip down automotive memory lane with the Gilmore Car Museum, this year featuring wagons like a 1919 Ford Model T wagon on which later editions were based. Other cars on display include a 1950 Chevy, 1948 Packard, 1972 Olds Vista Cruiser and 1989 Chevy with its rear-facing seats.

The Michigan International Auto Show will take place Jan. 30-Feb. 2.  Tickets are available online. DeVos Convention Center is located at 303 Monroe Ave. NW.
