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.
Despite a forecast of rain and storms, I managed to make it to three events over the weekend, one as a spectator and two as a participant. Best of all, not one drop of rain fell on my head.
Wholly Joe's Summer Cruise Nights
I started the weekend with a visit to Lewis Center, Ohio on Thursday evening for week two of Wholly Joe's Summer Cruise Nights.More than thirty cars showed up during the hour I was there. Because of the limited parking, the cruise-in is reserved for vehicles 25 years and older.
One of the vehicles to show up this week was this awesome Chevrolet Thriftmaster pick up. The truck was absolutely pristine!
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.
