Why? Cleveland Auto Show!

***A bit of blogkeeping: Congratulations to @tinktastic (Comment #12), randomly-selected winner of two tickets to see Dirty Dancing at Playhouse Square. Please check your email for details. If you didn’t win, you can still purchase tickets to see the show, which runs through March 22.***

Yesterday, Matthew, Jeffrey and I checked out the Cleveland Auto Show at the I-X Center. As this was my first ever auto show and they can be a bit overwhelming, I thought I’d share my Top 10 Things to See at the Cleveland Auto Show, to hopefully help in your visit:

1. The Ford GT. This is by far the coolest-looking car at the show and, I would say, the biggest draw.

2. Ride and Drives. There are tons of options to test drive cars, with lots of incentives to go along with the test drives. The Ram and Jeep indoor tracks are pretty sweet, too.

3. The Corvette Z06. Admittedly, I have a soft spot for Corvettes, as those are what my Dad has always had. But regardless, this is a gorgeous car!

4. The Bernie Moreno Companies’ Millionaire’s Row. From Astin Martin to Rolls Royce, there is quite the collection of high-end cars to make you feel like Bond, James Bond.

5. The BMW i8: not only a great-looking car, but also a great piece of innovation.

6. The new Cadillac ATS Sedan. I love seeing what new things car companies are coming out with that are in the realm of what you might actually see driving down the street.

7. Racing technology that ultimately drives a lot of the other vehicles at the show.

8. Other innovative and fun uses for automotive advancements, like this robot from Ford.

9. Chances to get hands-on with what could be your new vehicle, from sitting in the cars to picking out colors.

10. Getting to see my son and my husband already bonding over cars. Too sweet! The Cleveland Auto Show is totally family-friendly!

***Disclosure: I was asked to help promote the Cleveland Auto Show. In exchange, I received two complimentary tickets to the show. As always, all opinions (and lack of ability to adequately describe cars) are 100% my own.***

  1. You posted some really nice pictures. I gotta make it out there some time. Picture #7 is the Indycar for Ryan Hunter Reay who won the Indy 500 last year. A great driver and a nice guy. His child is a young boy too & they took this shot on the track after winning the 500 last year. Figured I’d share
