    My friend loves cars and he’s busy and doesn’t have time to relax these days so I want to cheer him up with this show. :)

  4. York Law

    Needless to say, I love cars and everything about them. Lately, my daughters have caught the bug and love them along with me. My summer car is their second play room, and car wash time is a family event. I wouldn’t want it any other way!

  5. G.

    When I was kid my brother worked as a salesman for a Richmond dealership. I got to tag along side him as he got me in for free. He spent all his time selling and showcasing vehicles while I ran around looking at my dream cars which at the time I had only seen pictures of. Flashforward more than 10 years now and I would love to give someone else the experience of the autoshow; who other whys wouldn’t go.

  6. Lisa

    My wife loves cars and always wished to attend such exhibition.
    She recently delivered a baby which is 1month old and giving her this surprise to attend auto exhibition to see the cars would be exiting to take her out. Hence looking forward for this.

  22. Bonnie

    I’m a boomer and have a boomerang sister that would like to attend. I live close by and could walk there and enjoy the afternoon in the beautiful convention centre ogling the vehicles and reminiscing when I used to drive a ’69 Camaro SS.

  32. I am an automobile enthusiast since I was a teenager. I have collected and built Ferrari and various model cars and followed the history and development of Alfa Romeo, Ford, Ferrari, Lamborghini, and currently Tesla. I will gain more knowledge and appreciation if I can attend the auto show and talk to the representatives of various dealerships in learning about their future research and development.

  33. RR

    It was our wedding anniversary on March 7th and we didn’t get to celebrate because of having tight budget this year. We basically spent our celebration money on necessities like groceries and baby diaper for our 2 toddlers.

    Only my husband is able to tell the type of car in the rear view mirror by its headlights, now that’s true passion for cars and deserving to attend the show!

    • Dee

      Oh and I’m referring at night

  38. Nancy

    My dad has always really loved cars but we’ve never had the chance to experience something like this. It would be a great early birthday present as well!

    Thanks for the opportunity

  39. Amy

    My dad’s birthday is at the end of March and he’s an automobile enthusiast! I’m sure that he’d love to check out the cars at the show. It’d be so special to him as we probably won’t be able to afford the tickets to go otherwise.

  40. Leydi

    It’s gonna be the most exciting event in this quiet city. Girls love boys things too:)

  41. Angela Chang

    My sons love cars very much. They will be very excited to have the chance to know more about cars.

  42. Mag

    I want to know the new trend

  43. Mary

    I’ve never been to the car show and would love to go with my boyfriend! My dad is also a huge car guy and has never been so it would be great to give him a pair as well!

  44. Angela

    So wonderful! My birthday is on the 27th and I would love to go. I have plans on being in Vancouver that week – which is a new adventure for me!

  45. C.

    Never been and it’d be amazing to get the chance to go!

  46. Han

    My family came from another country. We are so grateful what we’ve given from Canada. Fresh air, kind people.. we are so happy to be here. But I’ve been so busy for work and our house placed somewhat far from Vancouver, actually at the end of Coquitlam, so I couldn’t have any opportunity to bring my two sons and wife to Vancouver. They all love to watch great cars, so this would bea perfect chance for me to do a duty of father. This show could give my family a beautiful memory for Vancouver. I wish I can win the luck, but if not I still plan to visit your great show. Wish the show would be successful. Thanks.

  47. Rebecca

    It’ll be a great treat for my husband who loves cars

  48. Annie

    My boyfriend & I can’t believe we’ll be here just in time for this car show. This will have nothing in comparison to what we have back home. We love attending car shows and seeing the new cars/ features every year. Not to mention, he’s a super huge fan of cars!! Winning these tickets will definitely be a highlight of our trip.

  49. Jenny

    It’s a tradition! I take my dad every year!

  50. I would love a pair of tickets because my dad is super excited about the car show and I said i would take him!

  51. Alex

    My son just needs to see all the exotics and supercars! He drives them in video games but would love to see them up close.

  52. Magg

    I want to see the latest cars bec. I am in the market to purchase one soon. Saving up for this!

  53. Darius

    I love attending car shows and I’m a big fan of cars. Look forward to checking this one out.

  55. Chris

    It’s a great venue to see, touch, and sit in the the latest vehicles available, all within the enclosed comfort of the Vancouver Convention Centre!

  56. tan

    would like to take my buddy who has never been

  57. Don

    It’s time to replace our older cars for a new single family car. The wife & I thought it would be a great way to see all of the models out there to consider. This way it’s not so boring for the 4 & 6 year old kids that have to tag along.

  58. Jeff B

    We really need a new car but going from lot to lot to look and have to get into the endless repeated conversation with countless salesmen just so I can try to see the options is never something I look forward to. The auto show let’s me and my family browse in peace and really take in what every car offers. Please help us with a small taste of serenity. Thank you.

  59. Eileen

    I’d like to take my brother… His car just broke down and he needs a new one!

  60. LH

    Car shopping!
