MINNEAPOLIS - Nearly 500 cars are parked on the floor at the Minneapolis Convention Center for the 40th annualTwin Cities Auto Show. Every vehicle that's available for sale in Minnesota is represented at this year's show.

While walking around you might sense a renewed optimism. Car sales were up 13.4% in the U.S. last year. Show director Scott Lambert says attendance is up at the show so far. "We're rebounding from some pretty low lows a few years ago. We're not back up to the levels we want to be, back in 2006-2007, but we're getting there," Lambert says.

KARE 11's Bryan Piatt checks out this year's show and takes a ride on the new "Camp Jeep" course.
