The 2010 San Diego International Auto Show kicked off Wednesday at the downtown Convention Center and is expected to thrill and astound gearheads through the weekend.
On Monday, vehicles began arriving at the Harbor Drive exhibit space. By Wednesday, hundreds of new models, as well as concept cars, exotic cars and specialty cars, trucks and vans, were on display on more than 50,000 square feet. Also on opening day, auto-show attendees began test-driving vehicles from Jeep, GM, Ford, Kia, Toyota and other carmakers during the show.
The doors opened at 10 a.m. and will stay open till 9 p.m. on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, but close two hours earlier on Thursday and Sunday.
Tickets for adults are $10 -- kids from 7-12 are $6 (under 6 get in for free). On Sunday, during what organizers are calling Mazda Family Day, kids under 12 get in free with a paying adult.
