In 1971, Datsun introduced the 240Z, gasoline was 36 cents a gallon and the Miami International Auto Show, formerly known as the South Florida International Auto Show, launched its first exhibition. Today, this same auto show is recognized as one the largest and most prestigious in the nation.
This will be the show's 42nd year serving as a venue for national product introductions. The Auto Show showcases more than 1,000 new cars, trucks, vans and SUV models from more than 40 of the world's leading manufacturers -- a sight auto enthusiasts wait all year to see. With more than 665,000 people visiting the auto show each year, its financial impact on the local economy is estimated at over $50 million.
The South Florida Automobile Dealers Association, which today comprises more than 220 dealerships in Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach and Monroe counties, has been the official sponsor of the Miami International Auto Show since its inception in 1971.
