Vancouver International Auto Show

Volkswagen was kind enough to send me four tickets to check out the Vancouver International Auto Show (VIAS) so Gabriel and I invited my parents out that night to check out some of the newest models from Toyota/Lexus, Honda/Acura, Hyundai, BMW, Mitsubishi, Land Rover/Jaguar, Mini, Volvo, Subaru, Audi,Mercedes,Mazda, Infinti, KIA, Nissan, Ford, Chrysler/FIAT, GM and Volkswagen. We didn't know what to expect walking into the Auto Show since this was the first one we had ever been to. 

I like cars, now that doesn't mean I know a lot about them ha ha ha. In fact, I barely know anything about cars. All I know is that there are many brands and models, some are "cheap" and some are very expensive. Right, some cars also take in different kinds of fuel, gasoline, diesel or the hybrids.

I liked that I was able to open the door and sit in the driver seat of some sweet rides. While firmly gripping the steering wheel of one of my favorite cars, I closed my eyes and imagined myself with Gabriel driving through a desert (like in The Valkyries) was a pretty cool daydream. 
There was also a small section of exotic cars, where Gabriel spotted one of his favorite cars, the Lamborghini Gallardo. He told me that when he was a little boy his favorite Hot Wheels was a white Lamborghini Gallardo, just like the one right before our eyes. What a sweet memory, right. It's awesome how something in the present can bring back so much emotion and memories from our childhood.

I ADORE retro/vintage cars so I was very happy to see a couple at the VIAS. One of my dream cars is retro and belongs to the Volkswagen family, you can see pictures of the beauty here. Speaking of retro cars and Volkswagen, they had a pristine 1952 model of the Punch Buggy aka Beetle! Ha ha ha, did you ever play that game? Punch someone in the arm when you saw a VW Beetle? 

Disclaimer: I received four tickets for my editorial consideration and I decided to review VIAS based on my own experience and opinions. 


Thanks for leaving the positive vibes! Many besos,bendiciones and buenas vibras. I will be sure to send them back!xo
