Delaware Auto Show Sneak Peek Of Old Cars, 2020 Models This Weekend


Classic cars and shiny new rides will take center stage this weekend at the Delaware Auto Show.

The News Journal sponsored event will take place October 4-6 at the Chase Center on the Riverfront (815 Justison St.). For its 13th year, the event brings together luxury cars, family fun and, this year, a portion of classic cars.

“It’s a really great opportunity for people to get a feel for what’s out there in the market in one place,” said Doug Kabaker, the show’s coordinator.

About 20 manufacturers will have cars inside the Riverfront, ranging from high-end luxury models to everyday brands. This will be the first opportunity for most people to experience new 2020 models such as the Jeep Gladiator, Chevrolet Blazer and Kia Telluride.

Representatives of local dealers will be on hand to answer questions.

“It’s a really good opportunity for people to not only see the vehicles, but they can sit in them, they can touch them, they can be with them at a non-commercial event,” Kabaker said.

A fleet of classic cars will also be on display Saturday morning outside the Chase Center. In the children’s fun zone, there will be local mascots and a bounce house on Saturday and an ice cream social Sunday, among other activities. Other local vendors will also be on site throughout the weekend.

Event organizers will begin moving cars to the Chase Center early Wednesday morning. Dealers have different times to arrive depending on where they are in the centre’s ballrooms.

“It’s a process. It takes hours not only to get them in, but hours in advance to plan,” Kabaker said. “It’s a bit like having a parking lot with one driveway and one driveway.”
