Whether they were checking out the concept cars, such as the Fisker Karma Hybrid sportscar and Can Am Spyder motorcycle, or looking for the next vehicle to park in their own driveway, there was plenty of action at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center. The event is put together by the Niagara Frontier Automobile Dealers Association.

There's new life at a long vacant section of General Motors' Tonawanda plant. GM is opening an on-site training center as it gears up for three new engine lines. It is also going to use the site to put together kits of parts that workers on the engine lines use, to make the process go smoothly.

GM will revive Plant 4 on Kenmore avenue which has been mostly unused for the past several years.
