The combination of July 4th on Thursday plus the first weekend of the month make this one of the busiest weeks of the year for events.

Just a reminder, no Der Dutchman Cruise-In this week due to the holiday.

A few more events have been added to the Save the Dates Part Two page this week. July and August are "jam packed" with events to mark on your calendar.

As we head into May the weather should finally start to warm up. Hopefully, no more car shows in 40-degree temps for awhile.

May looks to be a busy month. The Roundtown Cruisers and Der Dutchman Restaurant start their series of events this month. The big swap meet in Springfield is scheduled at the end of the month. The end of the month will also see several events celebrating our Armed Forces. Let's hope the weekends stay relatively dry.

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.

The Rod Knockers Car Club registered more than 100 vehicles for their May show at the Rural King in Marion, Ohio.

As always, the show attracts a lot of great vehicles from around the area.  There's always good participation from the Marysville, Delaware and, of course, Marion areas.

One thing I love about going to car shows is discovering something different and unique. This month it was a 1978 Cadillac "flower" car.At first, I thought the car had been modified by the owner but later was told there are several aftermarket companies that purchase factory vehicles and modify them to be used to transport flowers for funeral services.

I got a kick out of seeing a drain in the back of flower bed.

Sunday Cruisin' Buffalo Wings & Rings logo

Shaun "Big Dawg" Sanders and his C-Town Cruisers kicked off their 2017 car show season at Buffalo Wings & Rings on East Broad Street.  This is a recurring show held on the first Sunday of each month from April through October.

I had originally planned to attend this show and the Marion Rod Knockers first cruise-in of the season on Saturday.  With temperatures forecasted to be in the low 40's Saturday night, I decided it was best to stay home and watch the NCAA basketball tournament.  There's something just not right about wearing long johns to a car show. ?
