Pressure. Queen and David Bowie have been under it, Paramores been feeling it getting closer, and Billy Joels been dealing with it since 1982. Where to turn? How about the Arizona International Auto Show at Phoenix Convention Center?
You dont have to be afraid, says Steve Wingenfeld, president of the Arizona Automobile Hobbyist Council and a Ford Mustang enthusiast. Its a nice, casual show with no dealer pressure. You can sit in almost all of the cars, test out the new gadgets, open and shut the doors -- its a low-key event.
Thats comforting -- especially since more than 400 vehicles will be awaiting your inspection. From 2010 models like the fuel-friendly Toyota Prius and the rich-friendly Porsche Panamera to ones that havent even seen the fluorescent lights of a manufacturing plant yet, like the 2011 Ford Super Duty. Looks like the only pressure youll feel is deciding which tires to kick first.
