44th Annual South Florida Int'l Auto ShowThe Miami lnternational Auto Show celebrate its 43rd annual this year. The premiere event in 1971 at the Miami Beach Convention Center - its home ever since then - was an auspicious opening. It was among a handful of major auto shows in America. Literally. Five cities offered auto enthusiasts a full-fledged professional display of the latest models: New York, Detroit, Chicago, Los Angeles and Miami. Now there are 60 annual auto shows and the South Florida production is still among the largest.
According to Cliff Ray, show coordinator for the past 30 years, the first South Florida show offered 200-300 mostly domestic models, some motor homes and a few booths displaying auto accessories. Some international automobiles helped spice up the floor in the early years with European models from Alfa-Romeo, Citroen, Fiat, Jensen Healey, MG, Renault and Triumph. Soon thereafter, show-goers would examine the latest Japanese models from Datsun, Honda and Toyota.
In 1971, Richard Nixon was in the White House, George C. Scott was in the year's Academy-Award winner Patton, the Grammy went to Simon and Garfunkel for Bridge Over Troubled Water and All In The Family debuted on CBS. A first class stamp cost six cents and the median household income was $9,000.
