Besides looking at all the latest models and accessories that make any car fun, car enthusiasts can also test drive any of the 40 available models in one of the multiple driving courses found outside the convention center.

One to add to your list is the newly re-vamped 2012 Volkswagen Beetle, or any of the others from Ford, Jeep, Chevy, Chrysler, Hyundai, Buick, GMC, and Toyota.

Also, Volkswagen will be bringing Max Page, child actor and the Mini Darth Vadar star of Volkswagen’s hit 2011 Super Bowl commercial, to the show. Max will meet and greet fans and sign autographs in the Volkswagen display on Saturday, between 11 a.m. and 12 noon and between 1 p.m. and 2 p.m.

There are many things to attend to during the OC Auto Show. Take a stroll to Camp Jeep and experience an off road journey inside the convention center. Have little ones?  Then let them drive their own jeep inspired Power Wheel as you recover from having been shaken around.
