Go Dream Car Dreams

I never expected to fall in love with a car, but I did after I moved to New Mexico for grad school. Buying into several grad school clichés, I bought a weathered silver Saab. That car became, as cars often do, the symbol of all things dear to me at the time—new adventures, open roads, life revisions. Multiply my experience exponentially and you arrive at events like the 2014 New Mexico International Auto Show. With more than 300 plug-in vehicles, full-size trucks and high-end sports cars, the show is billed as an automotive paradise.

Show goers can ogle luxury models, peek at vehicles not yet in dealerships and check out new technology like massive multimedia screens and inflatable seat belts. Get some hands-on experience with test drives for everyone, including children, who have their own Kids Autobahn. It’s a perfect place to do some reconnaissance if you’re in the market for a new vehicle. Even if you’re not, you can go and indulge in some unrestrained car passion.

Maybe that's exactly the point—a show like this is the stuff of dreams. Auto Show hours are 12pm to 10pm today, 10am to 10pm tomorrow, and 10am to 6pm Sunday, April 13, at the Albuquerque Convention Center (401 Second Street NW). Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for seniors (62 and older), military with any DOD ID and for children ages 6-12. Children five and younger are admitted free. Sunday is Family Day, and children 12 and younger will be admitted free when accompanied by a paying adult.
