UVU Auto Expo will feature 700 cars — including the Batmobile
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2012, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

Where can you see the Batmobile, Apolo Anton Ohno's 1964 Cadillac Coupe DeVille and a car that raced across the Bonneville Salt Flats at more than 400 mph?

At the UVU Auto Expo and Swap Meet, of course.

Those are just three of the more than 700 cars that will be on display from 7 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday at Thanksgiving Point, 3003 N. Thanksgiving Way, Lehi.

The Auto Expo is not only one of the largest car shows in Utah — more than 12,000 people are expected to attend — but it's all for a good cause. Proceeds go to provide scholarships for Utah Valley University students in the Automotive Training Programs.

The Auto Expo will feature dozens of rare, one-of-a-kind classic cars and a bit of star power. Dennis Gage, the host of "My Classic Car" on the Speed network, will be on hand, along with that Batmobile. (It's one of the vehicles from the 1989 "Batman" movie that starred Michael Keaton in the title role and Jack Nicholson as the Joker.)

Admission is $5 per person; children 5 and under are free.

In addition, UVU is sponsoring an automotive swap meet at Thanksgiving Point from noon-4 p.m. on Friday and 7 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday. Admission and parking for that event are free. —
