The Northeastern Pennsylvania Auto and Sports Show rolled into the Watres Armory in Scranton on March 29 thru 31, 1968. On display was over a million dollars worth of automobiles, motorcycles, snowmobiles and other sports equipment.

In addition to the big cars,  model car enthusiasts enjoyed model displays and even got a chance to compete with their HO racing cars in a competition.

The future of transportation was on display with Pennsylvania Power & Light “car of the future.” The noiselessly car, which is powered by a series of lead-cobalt batteries, can reach speeds of 120 miles per hour.

The show was organized by the Scranton Junior Chamber of Commerce and The Scranton Times.
