DFW Auto Show in Fort Worth

Holt and Caussey with Toyota CamryMy husband and I are both car writers, so we like to ogle new models at every opportunity. That’s why we attended a preview reception the night before the DFW Auto Show opened at the Fort Worth Convention Center this week.

Along with all the beautiful cars on display, there were buffets with prime rib, veggies and cheese, fruits, and desserts along with a full bar and some talented young musicians.

But the real draw was the automobiles.  We had our photo taken next to one of our favorite vehicles, the Toyota Camry.

We ran into a friend who’s also a TAWA (Texas Auto Writers Association) member, Bill Jinkins with his son, Brandon.Brandon and Bill Jinkins

Both are self-professed gear-heads and they were happy to pose for a photo by this beauty.

We also bumped into good friend and fellow Oak Cliff Lions Club member Don Herring, Jr.

Caussey with HerringDon’s a successful Mitsubishi dealer with dealerships located in Arlington and Plano, but he’s also VP of the DFW Auto Dealers Association and has chaired several of their North Texas trade shows.   I snapped a photo of Durhl with GM Financial executive David Simpson and Don Herring while they chatted.

Jim Hardick is the chairman of the 2015 DFW Auto Show that ran Nov. 19-22 in the convention center.

 “Our Show has been a Fort Worth institution for more than 60 years, and local consumers look forward to this event each year to assist them with their vehicle buying decisions,” said Hardick.

The DFW Auto Show in Fort Worth has added a test drive experience of more than 20 vehicles through the streets of downtown Fort Worth at their Ride & Drive event. Included with the price of show admission, vehicles from Ford, Lincoln and Toyota were available for drives and demonstrations at the Water Garden, adjacent to the Convention Center.

“There really is no better way to check out a new car or truck than to actually take it out on the road! This year, Ford is returning to the Ride & Drive line up, and Lincoln and Toyota are new to the event. All three manufacturers will offer a variety of compacts and sedans, pick up trucks and even hybrids to test drive. We hope all of our Show visitors will take advantage of this great opportunity,” Hardick said.

JagThe Ride & Drive Event was held from 10 am to 6 pm Saturday, Nov. 21; and 10 am to 6 pm Sunday, Nov. 22. Participants must be 18 years old, have a valid driver’s license and proof of insurance.

This jaunty-looking Jaguar convertible caught my eye, but I was quickly informed that it’s not included in the ride and drive.
