Northwood U. auto show Oct. 10-12

November 17, 2010

MIDLAND, Mich.—Billed as North America’s largest outdoor new-car show and produced by university students, Northwood University’s 45th annual international auto show is Oct. 10-12 at the university’s flagship campus. Admission and parking are free.

This year’s show, to be held during the peak autumn color season on a heavily wooded campus, will feature 500 new domestic and imported cars, trucks, recreational vehicles, vans, and experimental and specialty vehicles; and an extensive aftermarket exhibit.

The show attracts 50,000 visitors a year. Besides indulging in the vehicles of the future, attendees on Oct. 12 can reminisce with bygone vehicles during Sunday’s Classic Car Show.

The theme, "Fueling the Future," allows show-goers to "choose where you are going in life and how the automobile helps you get there," said Charlene Rosin, Northwood’s public relations director. She said the student producers will implement the theme in the displays.

Show hours are 1-6 p.m. Oct. 10, 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Oct. 11, and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Oct. 12. For more information, see or call 989-837-4823.
