Here are the car events this week in Central Ohio. Saturday is jam-packed with events from morning to night. Of course, the big event on the schedule is the three days Springfield Swap Meet and Car Show.

News and Notes:

Those that attended the first Der Dutchman Cruise-In of the year on Thursday evening got a little wet. While everything and everybody was still dry, Marty Ruiz managed to get in some photos from the cruise-in.

On Saturday, I stopped by the Ninja Express Car Wash Cruise-In during the afternoon and the Delaware Cruise Night that evening. Both events had good turnouts. Here's a sampling of some of the cars that made it out to each event.

This year's Grace Chapel Car Show in Westerville, Ohio registered 94 cars on Saturday. This was the best-attended show the church has ever hosted.

Best of Show went to the 1957 Ford Thunderbird belonging to Rich Robbins. Henry Ours with a 1940 Ford Panel Delivery truck received the Pastors Choice.

On a related note, Chad Schirtzinger who was the driving force behind the Hilton Polaris Tuesday Night Cruise-Ins last year has received permission from the Pastor at Grace Chapel to hold a weekly cruise-in at the church. The first cruise-in will be this Wednesday (6/24) starting at 5 PM.

For the first time this year, more events were added to the Save the Dates for 2020 page than were canceled. Check out the page for an up-to-date list of upcoming events.

BREAKING NEWS: It was just posted that the Vettes, Rods & Classics show at Creekside in Gahanna, Ohio slated for August 1st has been canceled this year. This show has been rated as one of the top car events in Central Ohio for the last three years. What a bummer!

Here's the list of car events for this weekend in Central Ohio.

I reached out to the Mid Ohio and C-Town Cruisers regarding the status of their events. I haven't heard anything back from either club as of this posting. I did hear it from a friend who heard from another friend that the Mid Ohio Cruisers were planning to have another cruise this month instead of a show. I don't have any info on the cruise other then it will take place Saturday evening (Click the Mid Ohio Cruisers link below for cruise info).

UPDATE: The C-Town Cruiser events for this weekend have been canceled.

I contacted the folks at Geer Gas on Monday. Their show is still on for Saturday but it will be a food drive car show. They are sending me a new flyer on Tuesday. UPDATE: The Geer Gas show has been rescheduled to May 23.

In a sign that things may be getting back to some semblance of normal, online registration for the 38th Annual Arthritis Foundation Classic Auto Show in Dublin, Ohio is now open. Click Here to pre-register your vehicles.

And finally, check out the Save the Dates for 2020 page for an up-to-date list of cancellations, postponements, and rescheduled events. I'm updating this page almost daily.
