CHARLESTON, W.Va. (Taisha Walker) -- The annual West Virginia International Auto Show rolls into Charleston on Friday.

Hundreds of the latest cars, trucks, vans and sport utility vehicles of 2014 are expected to be on display at the Charleston Civic Center all weekend long. Attendees can sit in, check out and take pictures with some of the newest vehicles under one roof.

Ruth Lemmon, president of the West Virginia Automobile & Truck Dealers Association, said this year's show is all about the "wow" factor. Lemmon said the array of technology and the pre-production cars are major attractions. Also, people can feel comfortable while they look without feeling the pressure of buying a car.

Lemmon said the car industry is making a comeback, and car show attendees will notice that at this year's show. The 2015 Ford Mustang and the Corvette Stingray C7 from General Motors are expected to be the most talked about cars of the show.

The car show is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday; 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday; and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.

Admission pricing is $10 for adults (13 and over); $6 for senior citizens (62 and over); $5 for children (7-12) and free for children 6 and under. Sunday is Family Day and children 12 and under will be admitted for free.

Eyewitness News will be giving away tickets on our 7 a.m. and noon newscasts on Friday.
