Nutter drives into auto show

CENTER CITY – Mayor Michael Nutter did his annual “drive-in” to the Philadelphia International Auto Show that opens to the public Saturday.

He arrived in a Toyota Prius — the second year in a row Toyota got in the public relations dream cameo — and spoke about the weeklong event held in the Pennsylvania Convention Center.

A black-tie “tailgate” charity dinner will be held Friday to officially kick off the auto show featuring over 700 automobiles.
