        Sorry for being reality. I used to attend for the longest time, but cars have become boring, automated and bland for me. The cost is not insignificant anymore and so there you have it, pass, zzz.

          I'll be going.. Not a fan of a lot of new cars and their respective technology but this is still a really good show for a true auto enthusiast

          Maybe score a special deal on that '15 4Runner we 've been thinking about
          Over promise and under deliver. It’s the most Edmonton thing you can do.

            I had one of those way back in the 90's with a stick, and a two liter diesel engine (which would never have been allowed in NA due to emissions rules). Loved it, was a blast on gravel back roads and similar.

            What is the entry price? I normally attend an auto show each year, I like seeing for real the autos I like to read about.

                      I'll pay that - its a lot cheaper than a movie when all is said and done, and more fun. I sorta like to keep up with the new models, as I like to think I might buy one of them second hand in the future when they are three or four years old. Seeing, and sitting in them, is a very different perspective than a video or magazine review, and there is nowhere else to see and compare so many new models together.

                          Plus there might be some good auto-related swag to be had

                          I also enjoy entering my best friends' e-mail address into every draw, offer and promo :P

                            That's my view. Shop about 4 or 5 years early for them at the auto shows. I can easily make some very rudimentary comparisons of different brands (seating, driver comfort, controls, visibility, etc.) all within an hour or so. This is a lot better than having to drive to different lots across the city and having to deal with sales people the whole time telling them I'm not serious yet - and so I'm wasting their time too. I also get to experience my own first impression rather than relying on some sketchy auto-reviewers' views of different vehicles.

                            Then hopefully, 4 or 5 years later I just have to re-test a few models and read driving and reliability reports on a few vehicles before shopping for a used car.

                              Not everybody is a car enthusiast.

                              Personally the only reason I'd go to the Auto show these days would be if I'm in the market for a new vehicle. Used to go every year as a young adult so I could check out the new models and drool over the classics/mods in the basement. It got old seeing the same thing every year.
