Welcome To The 1997 Auto Show!

Chris Camp

Let me be the first to welcome you to the 1997 New Car Dealers International Auto Show. We’re excited about this year’s show - in part because of the great lineup of cars, trucks, vans and SUVs, but also because we’ll be using the Fairgrounds new Annex building for the first time.

If you haven’t been to the Fairgrounds recently, you will be pleasantly surprised. Instead of the old, cold annex buildings with the low ceilings, we can show you our vehicles in a brand-new building with state-of-the-art lighting.

This new 40,000-sq. ft. building will allow us to show more vehicles than ever, too, so you can see all the best new models from each of the manufacturers. If you are in the market for a new vehicle, I invite you to bring your pertinent financial information - you’ll find it listed in another story in this show guide - because in most cases, we can arrange instant financing while you wait. And, of course, interest rates continue to be favorable, making this an opportune time to buy.

For those who wish to keep their monthly payments at a minimum, there are a number of attractive lease programs to choose from. The new short-term leases can get you into a new vehicle for a reduced monthly cost, and you have the comfort of knowing that your car will be covered by the manufacturer’s warranty for the duration of your lease.

I think once you have seen the lineup of 1997 cars, trucks, vans and sport utility vehicles, you’ll be as excited as we are. The 1997 International Auto show is is truly a great opportunity to find the vehicle that satisfies your needs and drive away for a price you might not have thought possible.
