Philly Auto Show: a Face-off between Ford Mustang and Chevy Camaro

AutoShowPlateThe 2013 Philadelphia Auto Show, produced and owned by the Automobile Dealers Association of Greater Philadelphia, rolls into the Pennsylvania Convention Center January 19-27. This year’s event will have hundreds of vehicles from a variety of worldwide manufacturers. Highlights include an array of concept, classic, luxury, pre-production and exotic models. Ticket prices range from $6.00-$12.00.  

 The Automobile Dealers Association of Greater Philadelphia  created the addition of the first-ever Philadelphia Auto Show Face-Off to its 2013 event, which parks at the Pennsylvania Convention Center from January 19-27. 

The inaugural Philadelphia Auto Show Face-Off will be an automotive showdown between two iconic brands of American muscle cars, Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro. The unique competition invites local car club enthusiasts to display what they consider “their best of the best,” as well as different models of each namesake that tell the story of the brand and how it has evolved over the years. 

“American muscle cars are an important part of automotive history,” said Michael Gempp, director of the Philadelphia Auto Show. “When making plans for our 2013 event, we challenged ourselves to come up with a way on how to best incorporate them and show the love affair that people, particularly those of the Delaware Valley, have with these iconic rides. The Face-Off concept fit the bill perfectly. It involves amazing product, enthusiasts and local owners, and we’ve even added a twist to engage Auto Show attendees.” 

After visiting the Face-Off display, which will be located in Rooms 201 and 204 of the Pennsylvania Convention Center, Auto Show attendees will be asked to cast their vote on which display they enjoyed more. Votes will be cast electronically via an on-site computer kiosk. The winning clubs will not only receive bragging rights, but also $2,500 to have donated in their name to a local child-related 501(c)(3) charity of their choice and $1,000 to be divided between the clubs that supported the first-place display.

Highlights from local Ford Mustang Clubs: 1965 Ford Mustang Fastback, 1966 Ford Mustang GT Fastback, 1967 Shelby GT 350, 1967 Ford Mustang, 1968 Ford Mustang GT/CS, 1969 Ford Boss 429 Mustang, 1969 Shelby Mustang GT 500, 1973 Ford Mustang Mach I, 1979 Ford Mustang, 1993 Ford Mustang Cobra, 1996 Ford Saleen S281 Mustang, 2004 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra Co and 2007 Ford Mustang.
