There are events Wednesday through Saturday this week. Sunday is Mother's Day. Nothing local is scheduled so everyone can spend time with their mother and their children's mother.
The weekly cruise-in at the Der Dutchman restaurant in Plain City, Ohio starts this week. The start is three weeks earlier than in past years.
NEWS AND NOTES:
The monthly Marysville Muscle Cruise-in attracted more the 70 cars Friday evening. Auto Smarts Radio personality Dan "Boots" Longenette was there with his BADD '57 pulling his new custom trailer.
The Rod Knockers car club out of Marion, Ohio had another good turnout for their Ladies Night show. The club registered 94 cars at the Marion Rural King Saturday evening. The ladies picked all the award winners.
The Club's Favorite award (aka Best of Show) went to Tim Keckler and his 1927 Model T Ford.
It was a wild morning at the Toy Barn in Dublin, Ohio on Sunday. The high-end used car dealer held their spring car show. I don't know the exact count, but my guess is close to 300 cars turned out for the event. The line of cars just kept coming and coming.
If you're a car enthusiast, a show/cruise-in like this is akin to a kid in a candy shop. Almost every genre of the automobile is represented. There were classic cars, high-end exotics, muscle cars, rat rods, electric cars, and trucks. About the only thing not there were motorcycles.
You couldn't ask for a better morning for a car show/cruise-in. And the big crowd of spectators proved it. If you'd like to see more cars from the Toy Barn show, Click Here.
The Sunday Afternoon Car Meet at the Point on Main finishes out this week's News and Notes. Host, Shaun "Big Dawg" Sanders and the C-Town Cruisers, registered more than 100 cars Sunday afternoon at the restaurant.
The Best of Show award went to Frank and his low mileage Ford Saleen Mustang.
The events are coming in so fast I'm struggling to keep the Save the Dates for 2021 page up-to-date. Check out the page for the most comprehensive list of upcoming car events in Central Ohio.
