Sorry, I don't have much to report on from the July 4th weekend.
I drove to Tee Jay's restaurant at the corner of Morse Road and High Street Saturday evening only to find out the show had been canceled that morning because of the threat of weather.
To say I was a little perturbed at finding the show canceled would be an understatement. I had been on the Facebook pages of both www.carshows.com and Ohio Car Shows and Cruise-In multiple times Saturday afternoon and there were no postings indicating the cancellation.
All I can say is there's got to be a better way to get the word out when a show is canceled. I suppose you could argue that I was the idiot for not calling the restaurant before driving over. In all fairness, it was perfectly sunny (although hotter than blue blazes) when I left the house. Radar showed most of the showers were north of Columbus, and the hourly forecast called for only a 10-20% chance of rain during the show hours. Fortunately, I live less than 6 miles from the restaurant so it wasn't a long drive. And I did manage to catch my friend who lives on the west side of Columbus before he left the house.
I guess you can chalk it up as one of the risks of doing car shows in Ohio during the summer months.
Vintage Auto Club of Delaware First Friday
Marty Ruiz was kind enough to send me the link to the photos he posted on his Facebook page from Vintage Auto Club of Delaware First Friday cruise-in at Freddy's Restaurant on Route 23.
It looks like they had about 20 cars show up. Given how hot and muggy it was Friday evening, that's not bad.
Auto Smarts Radio Cruise and Ride at Massey's Pizza
Pepsi's Auto Smarts Radio Cruise and Ride 2019 show tour made its way to Massey's Pizza in the Indian Mound Mall in Heath, Ohio on Sunday.
The show registered 65 cars. Best of Show went to this numbers matching 1958 Corvette Roadster belonging to Jane and Dave Winkle of Granville, Ohio.
That's it for this week's report. As I wrote at the beginning, it was short sweet and to the point.
This week the "Big Dog" in town will be the 22nd Annual Goodguys PPG Nationals at the Ohio State Expo Center in Columbus, Ohio. I've been wanting to do the All American Sunday event for the past four years. My goal is to finally do it this year. Hopefully, the weather cooperates. Look for a substantially bigger report next week.
