For years, manufacturers have used celebrities to lure people to their booths for autograph signings and it’s a brilliant maneuver, since many of these signings and meet-and-greets generate an enormous amount of traffic to the booths, with lines that can wrap all the way around the booth and spill into the aisles. Some celebrities are more famous than others, of course, like sports and television stars, but today’s automotive TV has developed a ton of super-famous people that draw some of the biggest crowds—some of them even work for our parent company, the Motor Trend Group.

We present here a collection of some of the celebrities that we thought you readers might recognize, so leaf through the photo gallery below and see who you recognize.
