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.
