Bar bet: which will any normal person be able to buy first: flying car or car that drives itself? Well, right now you can buy a Ford Focus, that's right, a Ford Focus that can parallel park itself, while the driver just has to hold the brake pedal. So, unless you count doing seventy-five through New Orleans City Park and catching air on the bridges over the bayou, self-driving car is well in the lead.
The Car Chat team took a road trip to the 2018 New York International Auto Show, and found the show has something for everyone -- a fun event for the whole family and all auto enthusiasts. There are entertaining virtual reality displays and games to play, and even lego work station sponsored by Ford that will encourage STEM-related creativity. Near the Lego work station, Ford also provided a glimpse into the near future regarding autonomous, self-driving delivery vehicles as a service. Toyota has provided a driverless concept display and a virtual reality experience for two passengers, a really fun experience!
It is definitely worth the effort to come to New York City for this event because you can organize so many other touristic activities around it, so many, in fact, that it goes way beyond the scope of this article to even mention them. The latest models and important highlights of the 2018 New York International Auto Show will be discussed by the Car Chat writers in subsequent articles.
