DENVER — Gentlemen, and gentlewomen, start your engines.

It’s the 2016 Denver Auto Show at the Colorado Convention Center. It’s the largest car show between Chicago and Los Angeles More than 500 cars and more than 40 car lines all sitting pretty under a 500,000-square-foot roof.

Cars are like time machines, they take us back like to our very first automobile.

“It was a Ford. It was a Ford Pinto, and I did survive,” said Tim Jackson, president of the Colorado Automobile Dealers Association.

The 2016 Denver Auto Show isn’t your daddy’s car show. Jump into a 2016 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon and go four-wheelin’ at Camp Jeep.

“It’s an interactive display for the public to have the opportunity to ride along with a professional driver and learn a little about what vehicle they’re in,” said Steve Lorton, Camp Jeep track manager.

You can check out Nissan’s latest, the Winter Warrior, equipped with four tank-like treads. It’s snow problem.

You can come to the 2016 Denver Auto Show for the affordable and sporty $12,000 Nissan Versa, but you’re gonna stay for the all handmade $2.5 million Swedish Koenigsegg convertible.
