There will be more than 400 new models on display this year at the San Diego Convention Center for this year’s show. Ford will be displaying several classic Ford Mustangs in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the iconic American muscle car. Some notable classic Mustangs on display include a 1965 Emberglo convertible, a 1973 Mach 1 and a 2004 40th anniversary edition GT coupe. Sunday is Ford Family day, children 12 and under are free when accompanied by a paying adult. You can also obtain four free tickets at participating Ford dealerships across San Diego County.
Today the show runs from 10 AM to 9 PM and has a pretty interesting theme: Electric Car Day. Representatives from the local energy company, San Diego Gas & Electric (SDGE) will be on hand to provide interested electric car buyers with information on energy rates. There will be a number of electric vehicles on display and informational booths will be set up to provide details about state and federal tax credits for driving an electric vehicle. You can also ask law enforcement experts about rules for carpool lanes and the use of charging stations throughout the county.
San Diego has a strong military community and our auto show honors that. Toyota dealerships in the area are providing free tickets to active and retired military families at any of the 11 Toyota dealership locations in the county. Those interested are required to provide a valid military I.D.
Another key attraction is a 15,000 square foot exotics vault which will showcase vehicles from manufacturers like Bentley, Maserati, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Lotus and more. Fans will be able to experience some of the most sought after vehicles on the planet in person.
So if you are in the area, we’ll see you at the convention center. Be on the lookout in the coming weeks for personal accounts from some of our employees of their experience at the San Diego Auto Show. [Related Post: BuyAutoParts.com Featured In The San Diego Business Journal]
