The annual auto show is going on now at the Convention Center in Downtown Buffalo and the local car dealers are pulling out all the stops for this year's event.

I took a walk through this morning just as the doors opened and the crowd was beginning to build telling me that there is a lot of interest in new cars this year. New models seem to grabbing a lot of attention like the Hyundai Veloster with its sleek lines and low price tag, and the Nissan Leaf with its all electric engine.

Trucks are in high demand in Western New York so the dealers have a brought sample of their best selections. You'll find the full line of Ford, Chevy, Dodge, Nissan, and Toyota trucks to choose from.

Is a luxury car more your style? Well you're in luck because Cadillac, Mercedes Benz, Jaguar, BMW, Infinity, Audi, and Lexus are all in attendance.

Muscle car fanatics were not left out either. Dodge showed up with the Charger SRT8 Super Bee, and the Challenger SRT. Chevy came prepared with its High powered camaro, and last but not least, a crowd favorite Ford Mustang.

Buffalo sports fans take note. Some of your favorite Buffalo sports athletes will also be attending and signing autographs. Andre Reed, Fred Jackson, Nathan Gerbe, and Jhonas Enroth will all be there. Click here for dates and times.
