"I wanted to see a car show. My wife wanted to see fall colors," Jim Kennedy said Saturday at the New Hampshire Auto Show at the N.H. Sportsplex.
"We can't believe these are all natural here," said Mrs. Kennedy, who hails from Fair Oaks, Calif.People from any state can check out 150 car, SUV and truck models today from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $5 for ages 7 and up. The New Hampshire Union Leader is a sponsor.
"I can watch my TV while he drives me around," she said from the car's backseat, which has two television screens. The car offers heated massaging seats and the ability to disperse four scents with names that included "Nightlife Mood" and "Downtown Mood."
For someone still months away from getting his driver's license, Phil Hughes, 15, of Auburn, spent a few moments sitting in the driver's seat of a red Mercedes convertible that originally listed for about $226,000, but was marked down to around $170,000 used.
