Indianapolis Auto Show celebrates 100th year

Doors to the Indianapolis Auto Show opened Thursday as event organizers celebrated the exhibit's 100th year.

More than 400 cars were on display at the Indiana Convention Center and dozens of car experts were on hand to help window-shoppers.

Although cars on display at the show aren't for purchase, many patrons who were in the market for a new vehicle said they enjoyed getting a glimpse of their dream on wheels.

"It's fun to jump in-and-out of cars that you might not actually buy just to see what they are like. It's an opportunity to see a lot of things in one place," patron Mark Greiner said.

The event also offers an indoor driving track with professional drivers from Jeep.

Dealers at the show had hundreds of 2014 models in all price ranges.

"It's fun to see what's coming out. You never know when you'll be in the market for something," patron Lee Huffman said.

Show manager Marty Murphy agreed.

"It depends on the market you're in," Murphy said. "You know, if you have a bunch of kids, you're going to look at the minivans and daydream about owning a two-seater boxer. You may not do that, but some people are looking, you know, for one or two years down the road. They're just trying to figure out the model they particularly like."

The Indianapolis Auto Show runs through Jan. 1. Doors are open 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day except New Year's Eve and New Year's Day, when the hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
