Many Surprises among the nearly 1000 Cars at the 2018 New York International Auto Show
There are some pretty sweet cars and experiences waiting for you at this year’s New York International Auto Show at the Jacob Javits Center, Manhattan. From all-electrics, concept cars, and sportier SUVs, to new reveals, and virtual reality and robot simulators, you can spend many hours immersed in the world of automobiles from March 30-April 9. You can buy your tickets here. Then, hop in your car, and drive to the nearest drive-in, Sonic Hamburgers in North Bergen, New Jersey. I'm still searching for one in New York City.
That’s just what I did today on the intro media day filled with press conferences, demos and car intros.
