The Central Ohio weather on Saturday suddenly changed from early spring to mid-summer overnight. Afternoon temperatures in the mid-80s and lots of sunshine brought out the cars on Saturday. Just about every show in the area had better than expected turn out. Some even set registration records.
I managed to break away for a few hours Saturday evening to attend the Cruisin' with the King show in Marysville, Ohio. The Shankles were once again kind enough to send me lots of photos from the Empty Pocket Cruisers Armed Forces Day Car Show they attended earlier in the day.
Scattered showers played havoc with this week's car shows. On Friday, the Auto Smarts Cruise and Ride at Tin Pan Alley in Hilliard, Ohio had only 17 cars register for the show. Cruisin' with the King in Marysville, Ohio didn't do much better on Saturday evening with just 16 registered cars.
I had planned to do the Meet to Beat Leukemia car show at Columbus State on Saturday afternoon and Cruisin' with the King Saturday evening, but showers right as I was ready to leave for both shows killed those plans.
Luckily, the weather gave us a break from the showers on Sunday so the whole weekend wasn't a complete wash out (no pun intended).
4TH ANNUAL ARMED FORCES DAY CAR SHOW
The Empty Pockets Cruisers' made a wise decision on Friday to move their Armed Forces Day Car Show at the VFW Post 4931 in Hilliard, Ohio from Saturday to Sunday. As it turned out, Sunday's weather was near perfect for a car show.
