PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The Pittsburgh International Auto Show rolls into town today.

It’s one giant showroom at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center with vehicles from every manufacturer imaginable.

“They can see every car they could possibly want to buy in one place,” John Putzier, of the Pittsburgh Auto Dealers Association, said. “There’s no high pressure sales techniques going on. This is a manufacturer’s show.”

Trees made of balloons mark Green Street with cars for the environmentally sensitive, like hybrids and electric models.

There’s a new element to the show this year.

“You can either ride along on a test drive with someone, or you can drive it yourself and I believe the Chevy Volt is one of the cars,” Putzier said.

Using every inch of the convention floor upstairs and downstairs, Pittsburgh dealerships will be looking for an early springtime jumpstart.

The show starts today at 4 p.m. and runs through the weekend.
