If your life simply isn't complete without Click and Clack’s rabble-rousing, cackle fest of automobile advice that is NPR’s Car Talk, then it may be difficult to break away from your radio for a more hands-on jalopy experience.

But if you can manage to, you and buggy buffs will get an eyeful of wheelie wonders during the Arizona International Auto Show. The sneak peek at 2012 rides will include more than 400 trucks, sedans, and high-end roadsters from on view at the Phoenix Convention Center.

More than 50 models will be available for test drives, including the Toyota Prius V and Chevy Volt. Of course, it wouldn’t be a car show without some swoon-inducing models. That’s why a collection of exotics -- including Aston Martins, Bentleys, and Lamborghinis -- will be on view in the luxury lounge.
