Friday evening's Creative Towing/Advanced Auto Parts car show in Marysville, Ohio paid tribute to the life of Dalton Shank. Dalton who was 14 years old passed away unexpectantly in a fire on June 2 in Michigan. He is the son of Creative Towing employee, Greg Shank. Through the generosity of local businesses and the sale of raffle tickets, the show raised $700 for the family.

With a beautiful evening of weather, attendance was one of the highest in the show's six-year history with 47 cars.

I only attended one show this weekend. I had plans to participate in the Jim Hamilton show on Saturday but my father was rushed to the hospital with chest pains and shortness of breath early Saturday morning. I spent most of day at the hospital with him. Thanks to friends, I have a bunch of photos from the Hamilton show.

Creative Towing/Advanced Auto Parts

The Creative Towing/Advanced Auto Parts show Friday evening was my one and only show of the weekend.

This was the second show of the season for the monthly event that takes place at the Advance Auto Parts store in Marysville, Ohio. This month's show registered 21 vehicles.

Five members of the Rod Knockers Club of Marion, Ohio made the drive from Marion to attend the show.

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.

Here's what I have for this coming weekend.

The forecast looks good for Ohio State's spring football game on Saturday, but not so good for the rest of the weekend.

Another weekend of car shows was dampened by rain and the addition of cold temperatures.

Rain started falling around 6 PM Friday evening at the Creative Towing/Advanced Auto Parts show in Marysville, Ohio.  By 7 PM it was coming down hard enough to force an early finish to the show.

With the threat of rain in the forecast and temperatures barely in the 50s, the show only registered 22 cars. Several cars left early once the rain started to fall.

Here are this month's award winners: 

Despite the bad weather, the show managed to raise $75 for the local food pantry.

There's one more Creative Towing/Advanced Auto Parts show on the schedule for November 9th, weather permitting.

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.

Friday evening the Creative Towing/Advanced Auto Parts car show in Marysville, Ohio had the best turn out for its monthly show.

Almost perfect weather and a pent-up demand for a car show following what seems like the longest winter in history saw 28 cars and trucks spend an evening in Marysville.

Jeff Shankle, owner of Creative Towing and host of the show, has a goal of reaching 50 vehicles by the end of the season.
