Community members are heading to the Bayfront Convention Center for the annual Erie Auto Show.

Long-time car enthusiast Frank Juhasz, who was born in Hungry, said when he moved to Erie in 1957, he learned how much Erieites love cars and how this appreciation is passed down for generations.

“People just like them, our children learned that — you know as they’re growing up. I have six children and I teach them all to love the car,” said Frank Juhasz, car enthusiast.

At the auto show, 14-year-old Ava Lockwood and several others are living proof of Jushaz’s claim. Lockwood said she comes to the Auto Show every year with her dad.

“I like to see the cars because there’s just a lot to look at and there’s a lot of people to talk to,” said Ava Lockwood.

“The important part is spending time with my son. He invited me and that’s probably the best thing about this,” said Joseph Scavella who was also in attendance.

“It’s fun to see the older cars first and then go see the electric cars and dream about which ones were going to drive,” said Pino Scavella.

“My dad taught me a lot about cars that’s where I learned my love of cars we go home and watch the motor trend channel all day long together, so it’s cool to see other fathers passing that on to their sons,” explained Donovan Deboe, who was also attending.

The Erie Auto Show concludes on Sunday, Feb. 5, at the Bayfront Convention Center.
