NEWS AND NOTES
Der Dutchman Plain City Cruise-In:
I'm certainly not a math whiz. However, there is one equation I know well:
Der Dutchman + Good Weather = Lots of cars
With sunshine and temperatures in the 70s, the Thursday evening cruise-in had 271 cars in attendance this week.
Creative Auto Group/Advanced Auto Parts Store:
The June Creative Automotive/Advanced Auto Parts show in Marysville, Ohio registered 22 cars on Friday evening. The show raised $73 for the Milford Center food pantry.
Here are the manager's picks for this month:
Tim Coulter drove all the way from Wapakoneta to attend the show.
Harry & Mary Wise Memorial/Celebration of Life Car Show:
The Big Walnut Grill in Sunbury, Ohio played host to the Harry & Mary Wise Memorial/Celebration of Life Car Show on Saturday. The show had 128 vehicles in attendance.
I have no information on awards as of this writing. As you can see from the sign above it says awards at 2:00 PM. But then I received an email that there was no judging. So I'm not sure if it was Peoples Choice voting or just a cruise-in. If anyone has information on awards from this show, please feel free to post it in the comments.

Immaculate Conception Parish Car Show:
The Immaculate Conception Parish Car Show in Columbus, Ohio registered 52 cars on Saturday.
The show presented five "Favorite" awards and five "Special" awards. The "Special" awards included the best engine, best paint, best interior, "cutest" and best overall. All awards were determined by "Peoples Choice" voting.
The Best Overall award went to John Nuckles and his 1940 Ford Woody pickup. John's pickup is definitely on a streak. This is the third weekend in a row it's received a "Best Of" award. Congratulations!

Help a Veteran Car, Truck, and Bike Show:
SVG Motors in Washington Court House, Ohio was the site of the Help a Veteran Car, Truck, and Bike Show on Saturday. Proceeds from the show went to help a veteran in need of a double lung transplant.
The show registered 70 cars. Our good friend and "car show talk field reporter", Dale Pearce, received Best of Show honors for his 1950 Chevy 3100 pickup.
Newark Eagles Car Show:
The final show to report on this week is the Newark Eagles Car Show on Sunday in Newark, Ohio. All proceeds from the show went to help rescue, spay, and neuter our furry friends.
Despite the threat of rain in the afternoon, the show registered more than 50 cars. Dale Pearce and his 1950 Chevy 3100 pickup went two for two this weekend with a second Best of Show award. Way to go, Dale!
Big thanks to Jeff Shankle, Dave Bratton, Dale Pearce, Larry Walters, and Russ Annis for their contributions in my absence. As some of you know, we're fighting Covid at my house this week. I'm blessed to be surrounded by this group who have volunteered their time to help.
