The C-Town Cruisers hosted their annual Independence Day car show on Thursday at the American Legion Southway Post 144 in Columbus, Ohio.

The past two years I've driven to Skelly Lumber in Urbana, Ohio to participate in the Champaign Cruisers Car Club annual Firecracker Car, Truck and Bike show. This year, however, I decided to stay a little closer to home.

It also helped my decision about which show to do that the C-Town Cruisers planned to present awards between 2:30 - 3:00 PM. All the other shows advertised awards at 5:00 PM. The thoughts of spending all afternoon in July's heat and humidity did not have much of an appeal to me.

The show registered a total of 36 vehicles. I figured the number would be closer to 50 cars based on the Veterans Day show last November. I guess heat and humidity are a bigger deterrent to car show participation than cold and salt.

Inside, members of American Legion Post 144 put together a very nice potluck for the cruisers. Cost was based on whatever you felt like donating. There were hamburgers, hot dogs, pasta and potato salad, chips, and plenty of deserts.

Just like the Veterans Day show, the C-Town Cruisers created custom trophies to celebrate our great country's birthday. The trophies included 25 "Favorite" and a "Best of Cruise".

Cold temperatures and areas of Central Ohio with salt on the roads did not stop 59 cars from participating in the Veterans Day Car Show at the American Legion Southway Post 144 on Sunday. 

This was Big Dawg and the C-Town Cruisers last show for 2018.

Big Dawg told me the Cruisers already have 19 events lined up for next year including the Reynoldsburg Tomato Festival.  This is a good sign that 2019 will be another big year for car events in Central Ohio.
