On The Rocks Bar and Grill in Dublin, Ohio held their annual fall car show on Sunday.

In past years, the fall show has been held on the second Sunday in September.  However, this year the date was changed to the first Sunday of the month.

I found out about the date change through a regular visitor to this website who sent me message on Wednesday that the show was scheduled for Labor Day weekend.  I couldn't find any announcement on oldride.com, the bar's website or it's Facebook page.  Matt Herman was kind enough to send me a link to the show's flyer.  I'm still waiting to hear where Matt found it.

Unfortunately, the combination of date change and lack of promotion lead to less than 80 registered vehicles.  Normally the spring and fall shows attract well over 100 vehicles.

There were still some very nice vehicles on display despite the lower than usual turn out.  And as always, the money raised from the show goes to support the Mid-Ohio Food Bank.

On Saturday morning, the Toy Barn dealership in Dublin, Ohio held its first ever car show.

The dealership pre-registered 144 vehicle.  The early morning wet roads kept a few of those pre-registered cars away, however, the show still managed to attract well over 100 cars by my estimation.

Jake Ballard, former Ohio State and New York Giants, tight-end was on hand  along with 97.1 The Fan Sports Radio.

Live entertainment was provided throughout the morning by Evan Blankenship.

I spent two long days at the Arthritis Foundation's 35th Annual Classic Auto Show & Cruise-in this weekend.  By Saturday evening I was sunburned, exhausted, and just a little bit upset.    Let me explain why.

This year is the 50th anniversary of the Chevy Camaro.  To honor 50 years of the Camaro, the show made the model one of the featured marques cars.

I saw more Camaros participate in this year's show than in the past four years primarily because of the marque designation.  On Saturday 68 Camaros from all six generations competed in the class judging.  The previous high had been 34 cars.  Last year, for example, only 18 Camaros signed up for the Saturday portion of the show.
