“This should be an exciting year for auto enthusiasts given the variety of automobiles we will have on display,” Peter Hodges, President of the Metropolitan Auto Dealers Association said. “Although we know the Futureliner #10 is our most unique feature, we believe all of the exhibits will appeal to everyone who comes to this year’s show.”
