Car enthusiasts from around the world came to Midland on Saturday for the final day of the Northwood University International Auto Show.
Corvettes, Jeeps, Ferraris and more were in Midland for the 58th Northwood University International Auto Show. The event showcases the latest automotive designs and innovations in automotive manufacturing.
Angelena Brindley is a junior from Northwood and part of the Lingenfelter team at the auto show.
âI think it’s great to see everyone in the industry, just to see the style of each company. I think it’s really great to see all the new technology that people are putting in these cars, I think it’s amazing, âsaid Brindley.
She’s happy to talk about the Corvette.
âOkay, it’s actually a 2020 Corvette C8, it puts out 570 horsepower. They added an intake, throttle body, corset exhaust and headers to that,â Brindley said.
Going virtual last year due to the pandemic, the auto show expects to welcome at least 10,000 visitors over these two days. The show is organized by more than 350 students.
Northwood Sr. Blake Holland is the Auto Show’s COO.
âThe auto show really brings the campus and even the Midland community together. So having that in person on campus, I think the energy really – really increased the energy on campus and made people excited to be back on campus, âHollande said.
The spectacle is a big deal for the Midland community.
âPeople in the community and in the Midland, they love the show this year and they were very impressed with what we did, especially with what’s going on with the crisps shortages and the covid, we can still have this show and it’s comparable if not better than recent shows, âHolland said.
The show presents more than 400 vehicles from 70 brands.
