New Car Smell 

Cleveland Auto Show president Gary Adams likens the annual favorite, which is parked at the I-X Center for the next week, to the world’s largest car lot. “When I was a kid, we went into town to see all the dealerships and the new models,” he says. “That’s exactly what this is -- but on a much larger scale.” Ford, Honda, and others roll out their latest car, truck, and SUV models. More than 800 vehicles are on display. “There’s no better way to enjoy our love affair with the auto industry than to line them all up next to each other and see how they feel,” says Adams. In addition to all the brochures, contests, and popular concept cars, the show features autograph sessions every day -- with such local luminaries as the Cav’s Anderson Varejao and Tribe mascot Slider.
Sundays, 11 a.m.-8 p.m.; Mondays-Thursdays, 12-10 p.m.; March 2-3, 11 a.m.-11 p.m. Starts: Feb. 25. Continues through March 4
