Welcome To The Spokane New Car Show!

As president of the Spokane New Car Dealers Association, it’s my pleasure to welcome you to the 1995 New Car Show.

This season, ours is the largest auto show in the State of Washington, and it represents the largest collection of cars, trucks and sport-utility vehicles that you can see under a single roof in our area.

As you know, the Spokane New Car Show is a “selling show” - it’s a tremendous opportunity to compare the new vehicles model-to-model and then make your best deal on the one that’s right for you.

We can help make that happen, because in addition to aggressive manufacturersponsored financing and lease programs, many local banks are offering special interest rates during the show.

If you’re just kicking tires, that’s okay, too, because sooner or later you’ll find the vehicle of your dreams!

Over the past decade the automotive industry has seen tremendous growth and change - and in 1995 that trend continues.

As you visit the show, you will notice major changes - both in technology and sheet metal - to two of the fastest growing segments in the busines, sport-utility vehicles and minivans.

Just a few years ago, it would have been impossible to predict the impact of either vehicle - but today hundreds of thousands are sold each year, and they just keep getting better.

You’ll see significant safety advances, as manufacturers continue to make airbags and anti-lock brakes available on more models.

They’re finding ways of increasing passenger room without making cars bigger or heavier. They’re improving fuel economy and boosting performance, too.

1994 was the best new car and truck sales year in history because manufacturers are doing a better job than ever of meeting the needs of the consumers - and most experts predict an even bigger 1995, so join the fun at the the 1995 New Car Show.
