Brent Franks, President of the North Texas Automobile Dealers, said that although the Auto Show will not take place in 2020, consumers can still get an up-close and personal experience with the automotive manufacturer’s newest models by visiting a local dealership.MORE NEWS: Supply Chain Issues: 'There Really Are Problems Everywhere,' Even For Small Companies
“During this difficult time, our NTXAD members have taken the steps necessary to meet or exceed CDC Guidelines at their new vehicle dealerships. This allows Texans to shop, compare and drive their next car, truck or SUV in a safe environment,” Franks said.
