Here are the Central Ohio car events for the last week of August. Only three more months left to the season.

News and Notes:

The Der Dutchman Cruise-In in Plain City set another attendance record Thursday evening with 401 cars! They might just hit 500 before the season is over.

On Saturday, Steve and Nancy Kidwell's 1938 Chevy took the Best of Show award at the O'Reilly Auto Parts show in Canal Winchester.

The Best Truck award went to Jeff Shankle's 1950 Ford F1 Pickup.

Big Dawg and the C-Town Cruisers registered 108 cars Sunday at the VFW Post 8794 show in Whitehall. The 1955 Chevy Bel Air belonging to Joe and Sue Schutt took Best of Show honors.

Some more events were added to the Save the Dates for 2020 page this week. As of this moment, September is going to be a busy month.

Here are the Central Ohio car events for this week. This weekend was suppose to be the alternate dates for the Arthritis Foundation Classic Car Show so there's not much on the schedule. Of course, that could change as the week progresses.

News and Notes:

The Der Dutchman Cruise-In in Plain City had another great week of attendance with almost 300 cars.

It was one of those rare weeks where there were no shows to remove on the Save the Dates for 2020 page. Surprisingly, there were a good number of events added. The big news is Colo's Classic Car Show at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium has been announced for Saturday, October 3.

Here are the Central Ohio car events for this week.

The Canal Events Center in Canal Winchester changed up their schedule this past week. The Friday night cruise-in has been moved to Sunday afternoons and the Wednesday night Bike & Sights moved to Friday.

Not sure what the plans are for the Mid Ohio Cruisers and their show this month at Burger King. I'll update this post as soon as I have any information.

News and Notes:

In case you haven't heard, Der Dutchman set a new attendance record last Thursday with 327 cars. The previous attendance record was 243 vehicles set on September 12th of last year.

The Empty Pockets Cruisers had their best attendance for their rescheduled Armed Forces show. They registered 189 cars on Saturday. Kevin Foust took the Best of Show honors.

And Finally, Big Dawg and the C-Town Cruisers registered 58 cars at the Sunday Cruisin' at the Point on Main show. Congrats to Joe Messano and his 1966 Mustang Fastback for picking up the Best of Show award.

The Save the Dates for 2020 page is still be updated regularly. I added a few events as well as deleted a few events this week.

Here are the Central Ohio car events for the last week of July and the first weekend of August.

I wouldn't be surprised if a few of the shows scheduled for Saturday or Sunday are canceled by the end of the week so check back often.

News and Notes:

Here are some highlights from this past week's events:

  • Der Dutchman registered 93 cars at its weekly cruise-in on Thursday.
  • On Friday evening, 78 cars turned out for the London Strawberry Festival Car & Motorcycle Show.
  • The Black Wing Shooting Center Summer Blast Car Show had more than 100 cars in attendance. The Best of Show award went to Bill Erlenback and his 1957 Chevy Bel Air convertible.
  • The 1959 Chevy El Camino belonging to Ralph Carle picked up Best of Show honors at the Makeup Date Cruisin The Point On Main Car Show hosted by the C-Town Cruisers.
  • The Cars and Cones Ice Cream Cruise-In had its best attendance yet with more than 140 cars showing up during the 90 degree afternoon.

This past week the Save the Dates for 2020 page had as many new events added as were canceled.

Here are the Central Ohio car events for the last full week of July. Hard to believe we're halfway through the season.

Just a reminder to check back here often as this list will most certainly change as we move through the week.

News and Notes:

Of course the big news last week was the cancellation of the Arthritis Foundation Classic Car Show and Cruise-In that was scheduled for August 20-22 in Dublin, Ohio. A few more significant shows also ended up on the chopping block thanks to the Governor's mass gathering orders. These included the Annual Buckeye Ranch Car Show in Ashville, The Cruisin with the Cops Car Show in downtown Bucyrus, The Charitable Open Car Show in Sunbury, and the Dublin Am Rotary Classic Car Show scheduled for September 6 in Dublin, Ohio.

Despite the cancelations, there were a few additional shows announced last week. The biggest of these being the USA Days Car Show in Centerburg, Ohio scheduled for September 13.

Here are the car events for the first week and weekend of July. Even though there is no Champaign Cruisers Firecracker or Union County Fairground shows this year, there are still plenty of events scheduled for July 4th.

Last week there were several last-minute cancellations and location changes. I try to update the list as soon as I know about any changes, however, it's always a good idea to contact the organizers to confirm the event is still on before heading out.

News and Notes:

The second week of the Der Dutchman Cruise-In turned out to be a big one. More than 200 cars showed up for what turned out to be a beautiful Thursday evening weather-wise. Starting this week, I believe the restaurant is going to start selling ice cream and soft drinks at the cruise-in.

The inaugural Grace Chapel Wednesday Night Cruise-in attracted about 20 cars. Just like the Hilton Cruise-In last year, it was after 6 pm when the majority of cars arrived. Chad Schirtziner is working to get a food truck on the premises each week.

Two big events, Cruise the Ville and Vettes, Rods, And Classics at Creekside, were canceled last week. Fortunately, there were twice as many new events anounced. To see the most complete list of future Central Ohio shows and cruise-in, logon to the Save the Dates for 2020 page.

BREAKING NEWS: Dan "Boots" Longenette and Pepsi's Auto Smarts Radio have released their 2020 Cruise and Ride schedule. I will be adding these events to the Save the Dates page.
