2017 New York International Auto Show

Every year in April all the car companies come together under one roof at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City. Thousands come out to view what is coming out, concept cars, and more. I have gone many times to what us New Yorkers simply call ‘The Car Show.’ This time around I had the opportunity to get a sneak peek prior to it opening to the public.

I love seeing the many different cars designed from all around the world. One of the first things I noticed was there weren’t as many cars as in recent years. Still there was plenty to look at and many cars that caught my eye.

Of course the Yankees and Mets grabbed my attention. I loved the cityscape on the hood of the Yankees car. Being a Queens girls I had to give you all a look at the Mets car.

For all the outdoorsy people and travelers this was pretty awesome. Camping from the back of your SUV or truck.

I found a BMW and fell in love. I was surprised because the only two door car I have ever loved was a Lamborghini. It was love at first sight with this BMW, which I was told was a Snapple Rock Metallic Blue. I would love to drive this car around for a couple of days and really see what it can do.

Outside there was a road test set up that looked more like an obstacle course. Hoping in the Jeep Wrangler and taking a ride was a ton of fun.

Obviously the Bugatti was a show stopper.

There were a few concept cars, but this Toyota i-Rode stood out.

There was plenty to see, but I don’t want to give it all away. Head down to the New York International Auto Show while it is still in town till April 23rd. If you can’t make it you can see more for yourself in my video or there is always next year! Ticket prices are $17 for adults $7 for kids.

Have you ever been to the New York International Auto Show?

      I am sure you had a lot of fun of that one. The Rouge One car is really cool. It had moving elements to it.

    The Chicago Auto Show is always a treat for us here! I loved attending, and it looks like you had just as much fun as I did! There’s something about so many new cars in one space, and I must agree, that the camping set up is pretty sweet! It might be the only way I get my husband to agree to go camping with me!

      I always enjoy the car show. I have been going for years. The camping set up was pretty awesome. At least you found a way to get your husband to camp with you.

    I’ve not made it to the New York show yet. The StarvWars Rogue looked cool, and I loved the Benz truck.

      It does look pretty cool and had some moving elements to it. That Benz truck was so bright on the inside with the indoor lights.

      They are a lot of fun, even if you don’t know a lot about cars.

      You actually don’t have to be a car person to enjoy the car show.

    I’ve never considered going to any type of auto show but this looked like alot of fun, especially doing the obstacle course in the Jeep. I also thought the camping from the back of the SUV looked pretty cool too. I’ll have to add this to my list.

    My husband is totally in to cars and we’ve been to our fair share of auto shows. It is fun seeing the concept cars, though many will never make it to production. the New York show is one we have yet to attend.
