Minneapolis Auto Show 2011 Show Info! Hours and Schedule of Events

The 2011 Twin Cities Auto Show is here again!

The Minneapolis / Twin Cities Auto Show begins tomorrow, Saturday March 12, 2011. While it isn’t exactly Geneva or New York (the photo I placed above of the SLS AMG is from New York… it’s not here in Minneapolis, sorry). There are expected to be about 400 cars there, more than last year, representing 31 domestic and foreign manufacturers. Scroll down for more specific information about displays and events at the show. It looks like it will be a good one this year!

I will be working at the Mercedes-Benz booth tomorrow, Saturday, March 12 from 5:00pm until 10:00pm. Please stop by and say hello if you’re there! See you at the show.
