Red hot cars at the 2017 Texas State Fair

 IMG_0130Sometimes being offered a chance to see some of the newest cars with trend-setting features can be a bit overwhelming. How to choose which vehicles have the most exciting features? Which ones will be the most interesting to Fair visitors.

At each phase of my life, I have enjoyed different parts of the Texas State Fair.When I first moved to Texas and was a full-time Mom, I rushed over to the Women’s Building to see traditional crafts like quilting, crocheting, and other traditional Texas handiwork winners. Then on to my recipe phase—when I bought the annual cookbook of Texas State Fair winners. I think I even used to bake homemade pies in those days. Although none of my family or friends remember that phase of my life

One year when I was reviewing restaurants for the Dallas Times Herald I was asked to be a judge in the State Fair Cooking contest. The first time I did it I eagerly ate every bite of the first few things I was judging. Then a wise volunteer noticed I was a newbie and said, “honey, you can’t eat them all!”

When she saw the disappointment on my face she graciously offered to save all my samples on a table behind the judges, Thank goodness she stopped me.

Then as I settled into Dallas and became a “native” —When I moved here in 1973, anyone who lived in Texas for five years or more was considered a native. Newcomers were discovering Texas at a speed that might have rivaled the California Goldrush.

As my children grew, the visits to the State Fair to see the award-winning animals. That might have been my least favorite reason to go to the State Fair. My daughter was active in 4H and she always wanted to spend the whole day looking at baby goats and award-winning steers. That might have been my least favorite reason to go to the State Fair.

Flash forward many years until I started writing about automobiles. When I joined the Texas Automotive Writers, I was invited to the Media Day at the Texas State Fair. That is my favorite way to visit the Texas State Fair. 

Here are some of the coolest red hot cars.

Cars seem to improve each year with new technology and updates according to consumer preferences. So seeing them all at the same time at the Texas State Fair is a great way to get updated on what is new in the automotive market.
