This weekend saw the first weather cancellation of the 2019 season. The C-Town Cruisers made the decision on Friday to call off their show at Buffalo Wings and Rings on East Broad Street scheduled for Sunday. This is a monthly show at the restaurant so hopefully, the May weather forecast will be a little more cooperative.
Creative Towing/Advanced Auto Parts Car Show
On Friday, Creative Towing and the Advanced Auto Parts store in Marysville, Ohio held their first show of the season.
For the second week in a row, showers in the morning gave way to partly cloudy but dry skies in the afternoon and evening.
This month's show registered 29 vehicles. Tickets sales from the door prize and 50/50 raffles raised $105 for the Marysville Food Pantry.
Friday morning the index finger on my right hand encountered the supercharger belt on my Camaro. This gave me the opportunity to meet two very nice Columbus Police and Fire Department paramedics and spend eight hours in the OSU Medical Center Emergency Department. Let me just say the entire incident won't top my list of brilliant moves.
Since typing at the moment isn't very efficient, this week's report will be a little shorter than normal.
Starting with Der Dutchman, the cruise-in set a new attendance record this past Thursday. The restaurant registered 147 vehicles braking the previous record by four cars. More than 20 were first time participants.
The Thursday cruise-in has become so popular this season that the restaurant has added a second port-a-potty!
Boot's from Auto Smarts Radio stopped by again this week with his BADD '57 Chevy. He invited Bill Fowler (see arrow) From Baer Brakes to come out. Bill brought some Baer shirts with him that were raffled off at the end of the cruise-in.
I was unable to attend any events this past week. My wife had shoulder replacement surgery on Tuesday which thrust me into the role of primary caregiver as well as nurse for the week. Her recovery is going well so I hope to get back out and attend a few shows this weekend.
Thanks to the Shankle's for once again sending me photos and info from the shows they attended.
I noticed that attendance seemed a bit down this week. It could be that a lot of classic car owners were a little "burned out" from the two big shows the week before and felt the need to take a break. This is also the peak time for summer vacations which may have been another contributing factor. Whatever the reason, the shows this weekend didn't seem to have big attendance numbers.
