VIDEO: DFW Auto Show Preview, Join Us Live This Saturday!

The Car Pro Show will be broadcasting live from the DFW Auto Show  Saturday, March 28th from 9am to 2pm! Make plans now to join us! There will be lots of free stuff from the Car Pro/WBAP promotions staff for you!

Jerry appeared live on CBS 11 in Dallas Wednesday with a special sneak peek of the show.

For 33 years, the DFW Auto Show has been THE tool for consumers who are researching and refining the new vehicles that are on their shopping lists. This year, the doors to the Dallas Convention Center will open March 25-29 with an offering of more than 650,000 square feet of vehicles showcasing the latest in cutting edge design, technology and fuel economy.

“I’ve been going to the Show since its inception when it was held at Market Hall and the ‘Cars were the Stars’ “, said Don Herring Jr., 2015 DFW Auto Show chairman and Car Pro Show affiliate for Mitsubishi.

“I started actively working it in 1994, and have enjoyed working it each year. Over the years different manufacturers have come and gone, many concept cars have wowed visitors, but the excitement and atmosphere of the Show has always been the best part.  When 400,000 people come to see the latest models at a Show that includes almost every manufacturer and takes up almost all of the Dallas Convention Center, there is nothing else like it.  The Show has grown to a size that no one could have imagined back in the ‘80s and truly has become one of the largest five-day shows in the country,” he said.
