AutoShow in Motion

2005 Chevrolet Corvette

It’s that time of the year again..

No, I’m not talking about the holiday season (fortunately, that’s still a few weeks away). I’m referring to AutoShow in Motion, a traveling showroom of vehicles that you can test drive all day long.

Registration is free. You can register online at AutoShow in Motion website, or you can just arrive at the venue (Reliant Park) and register on-site. I’d recommend registering online, because you aren’t guaranteed entry if you register on-site..

You have to be at least 21 to drive the vehicles. However, kids and under-21 guests are welcome.

The event is sponsored by GM, but you won’t see any salespeople trying to sell you anything. The vehicles are sorted by body style (truck, sedan, SUV, etc.) and you stand in line and wait to drive the vehicles around. Also, GM vehicles aren’t the only ones you can drive. GM has even brought their competitors’ vehicles (including Ford, Dodge, Toyota Lexus, Mercedes, etc.) for you to try out.

In addition, you get to be one of the first to test-drive the new 2005 Corvette, as well as take the Hummer H2 on an “off-road” course.

I went last year, and am going again this year. Parking is free, you get to drive around in some nice cars all day long, and they even give you a free lunch. What more could you ask for?

Did I mention you get to drive the new Corvette?

    You never said when it was and the website doesn’t list a Houston event.
