Most cities tend to have at least one area where there is a high concentration of car dealerships, along with various automotive services such as tire/oil change service centers, car washes, and inspection/emissions stations. They range from just a couple dealerships in small towns (Usually just a Chevy, Ford, and/or Toyota) along with a Car Wash and a service center, to some long strips of dealerships over a mile or so, such as Manhattan's 11th Avenue. You can also have suburban Auto Malls, which are basically the automotive equivalent of a shopping mal or Baltimore's Ritchie Highway. Some places tend to be more scattered with their automotive locations. Where is the "auto row" in your city?

I think it's pretty cool that OKC has a historic urban district where car dealerships were once prevalent called Automobile Alley.

In Detroit, Livernois and 8 Mile have an seemingly endless supply of used car dealerships. The suburban areas have auto malls scattered about usually with about several major dealerships next door to each other.
