The Auto Show Featured A Variety of Vehicles

The Auto Show in Philadelphia, Pa was impressive. We turned it into a family event as I attended with my daughters and son-in-law. Whether you are male or female, young or old, rich or poor, there was a variety of vehicles that could satisfy your car purchasing desire. For the year 2018, there were numerous cars available starting from $20,000 up to $60,000 or more. Of course, the outrageous boy toys were present which ranged from $150,000 to more than $200,000.

We were surprised to discover reasonably priced vehicles within such cars as #Volvo, Mercedes, Porshe, and Jaguar. These previously known affluent cars actually had vehicles in the $30,000 price range. This was an eye-opener to a lot of visitors at the Auto Show. Crowds anxiously gathered, around these cars. People of all ages, races, and gender. Numerous people especially young men slid into the driver seats of various vehicles.

The new XC40 SUV Volvo was one of the favorites. People stood in line to hear the spew about this car. Finally, one of the safest vehicles was described on their website as, "Great things don't come from comfort zones. To create our smallest SUV, we looked to architecture, art, and culture for inspiration. By thinking differently, we designed a vehicle that's unlike anything you've experienced before." Another esteemed car was the 2018 E-400 Convertible Mercedes. It was navy blue with cream colored seats. This nice looking vehicle was described as being, "Defined by style, powered by innovation."

The #Auto Show was a machination of safety, luxury and reasonably priced cars that brought a variety of people together. It was an adventure that brought our family together for an afternoon of pure amusement.



After the Auto Show we went to the Brazillian Steakhouse for Dinner.

After the Auto Show We had Dinner at the Brazilian Steak House

We thoroughly enjoyed the Auto Show but upon leaving we were famished. The Picanha Brazilian Grill was our choice located in downtown Philadelphia. We ordered and were served drinks. Then it was time to delve into the salad bar which consisted of a variety of cold cuts, cheeses, artichokes, olives, as well as an array of salads and soups.

After we indulged in the salad bar, a seafood dish was ordered. It was filled with shrimp and lobster claws which were fresh and delectable. The round tabs on our table allowed us to have an assortment of meats delivered such as chicken, steak, lamb and Italian sausage. Next on the menu was desserts such as key lime pie and chocolate, caramel covered cheesecake. This was an authentic #Brazilian style that is a stimulus for good eating. We left the restaurant satisfied with our family day at the Auto Show and delicious food as well. We thanked our heavenly Father Jehovah for a clean and fulfilling day of recreation.
