INDIANAPOLIS — If you didn't get exactly what you wanted for Christmas, maybe you can find it at the Indiana Convention Center between now and January 1.
That holiday tradition, the Indianapolis Auto Show, opened its doors Thursday. Twenty auto makers from around the world have their 2020 models on display. Included are cars, SUVs, light duty trucks and luxury vans.
And there are vehicles you won't find at your local dealer. 11-time Indianapolis 500 starter Scott Goodyear has brought the Andretti Autosport Dan Wheldon Indy 500 winning car to the show, along with one F3 Americas car and one F4 U.S. car. Goodyear is race director of both series.
F4 and F3 drivers Chandler Houston, Will Edwards, JP Southern, Jacob Abel, along with Rookie of the Year Trans Am driver Lawless Alan will be available for autographs December 27 through December 29 at the Sports Car Club of America booth.
Much attention at the show is focused on the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, winner of the 2020 MotorTrend Car of the Year award.
Attendees can interact with adoptable pets at the Subaru Loves Pets play area, where animals will also be available for adoption.
If you make a blood donation at the Versiti Blood Center of Indiana Bloodmobile, you'll receive a $10 e-gift card which is redeemable at more than 250 retailers.
The show is open every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., except next Tuesday and Wednesday when it closes at 6 p.m. Adult admission is $7 and children under 12 get in free with an adult. All active military personnel, along with guard and reserve members are admitted for free. So are active police and fire department personnel.
The Convention Center is located at 100 South Capitol Avenue.
