st-louis-auto-show-2013Last week I posted this photo on my Instagram asking everyone if they could guess where I was:

There were a couple of people who sort-of got the answer right ~I was on a Can Am bike – but not out on a ride – I was actually at the St. Louis Auto Show!

This year marks our first time having a chance to attend the annual show because all of our schedules are usually very busy during this time of year. With the weather being so miserable outside, it was another great way that I found for us to spend a winter weekend afternoon.

The show featured practical cars such as the Chevy Impala…

Although I am very happy with my current car, I really liked this one–it seems to best suit my needs.

The Auto Show featured more than just new cars, there was an entire section of antique models too.

After we checked out the economical cars, we then moved on to the luxury cars to pick out our favorites.

My newly 16 year-old son asked if he could have this car…..I think you already know my answer! 😉

Lady T is only 10, but she said that when she gets old enough, she wants this Platinum truck.

As for me, here’s what I found that think would be perfect:

LOL — Just kidding!! 😀

melisasource-auto-show-st-louis-2013My “Dream Car” would be this one — the Maserati. ~I fell in love with it the moment I saw it!!  🙂

.

Last but not least, everyone’s favorite was this vehicle: the “Tailgater’s Dream” van.

..

The back of the van is a sports fan’s dream indeed!

If an Auto Show has plans to stop in your area, I highly recommend that you check it out. There is something for every adult and child of all ages, and it is a fun way to spend time with family!

    Awe I did not make it to the Philly Auto show this year. That Mercedes in the video was super loooooooooooong. 🙂 It looked like at least 20 people could comfortable in it.

      Greetings Chasing Joy! LOL Yes that Mercedes is something — it was very nice inside! It was too dark inside for me to capture good filming. 🙁 Definitely be sure to catch the show in Philly next year! Thank you so much for sharing here with me! 🙂

  • We haven’t done a car show, but my son enjoyed the boat show.
    And I’m with you.
    That Mercredes looks fly!

      Greetings Joyce! Love that mercedes–especially with my big brood! LOL Definitely try to take in an auto show if you can — your family will love it! Thank you so much for sharing here with me! 🙂

  • My family and I go to the auto show every few years and we always enjoy it. I did not want to go the first time because I thought I wouldn’t like it, but I was surprised. It is a reall good tiime.

      Greetings Janeane! I’m glad that you have the auto show as part of your family outings! And the cool part is that it gets better and even more fun as years go by! Thank you so much for sharing here with me! 🙂

  • They do have great auto show? Don’t they? It looks like you all had a wonderful time! I remember going to the one in KC all the time and it was wonderful! I know the two cities would go back and forth with things and the rivalry is unmatched when it comes to football and baseball…lol (I miss living in K.C. a lot of the times…sigh)
