PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Philadelphia Auto Show returned to downtown on Saturday. This is the first time cars, trucks and SUVs have entered the Pennsylvania Convention Center in over two years.

The last auto show was in February 2020. The pandemic shutdowns happened less than a month later, but they are now putting all of that behind them and are ready to welcome back thousands of fans.

From classics to the hottest vehicles on the market, there’s something for everyone at the show. You can even test electric vehicles on the brand new e-track. Doors opened to the public Saturday at 9 a.m. The Philly Auto Show lasts until Sunday March 13.

Kevin Mazzucola, executive director of the Greater Philadelphia Automobile Dealers Association, said there was something for everyone at the show.

“There’s nothing like the show,” Mazzucola said. “You’ve got the electrification of cars and vehicles on e-track, you’ve got throwback to the days, which is kind of a zen room of amazing classic cars. You’ve got the camp jeep. You’ve got a custom driveway in low, you have prototypes, you have exotics, so the variety is vast at the auto show, and that’s why we have hordes of people coming.
