In last week's report, I stated it might be two weeks in a row of no car shows for me. Late in the week, however, a reader sent me information on several events that had been posted to Facebook only. One of those of events was Tansky Sawmill Toyota End of Season Meet held on Sunday at their former used car building.
The event was open to all makes and models. Sunshine and temperatures in the 50's provided the needed ingredients for a good turnout. Both domestic and import vehicles were well represented.
A number of regulars from the Central Ohio car show scene stopped by. This included:
With the meet sponsored by a Toyota dealership, you would guess that the majority of cars where of the import variety. And in this case, you would be correct.
I always enjoy participating in these types of events just because it gives me an opportunity to see cars I wouldn't normally find at most car shows or cruise-ins.
Here are a few examples:
This twin turbo Toyota Supra makes 880 HP to the wheels. The license plate V10EATR says it all.
Inside the used car building, Tanksy had a DJ playing tunes and a 2019 Toyota 86 TRD Special Edition on display.
The dealership provided food and drink in the form of hamburgers, hot dogs, and brats to everyone that came out.
The event turned out to be a great way to spend a few hours on a lovely fall afternoon. A big thanks to Tanksy Sawmill Toyota for putting this on. I thought it was a lot of fun.
OTHER EVENTS FROM THE WEEKEND
Mike Gibson participated in the London Strawberry Festival's Halloween Show on Saturday. Mike said attendance was a little over 30 cars.
I got reports that that both Cars and Coffee events on Saturday had very good turnouts. In fact the the turnout was so good at the Season 10 Finale, they had to turn cars away because there was no more parking spaces left at the Whitehall Community Park.
That's it for this week. If the weather cooperates (doesn't look very promising at the moment), I'll have reports from two shows next week.
