After one of the hottest weekends on record, a cool front finally pushed through last Monday bringing more seasonable temperatures and less humidity. The net result of the weather change was some nice attendance numbers this week at the local cruise-ins
Tuesday Night Cruise-In at the Hilton Polaris
After a slow start, the Tuesday Night Cruise-In at the Hilton Polaris had over 70 cars show up.
The mode of operation for this cruise-ins seems to be for everyone to show up after 6:30 PM. Prior to 6:30 there were maybe 4-5 cars in the parking lot. I think rush hour traffic has something to do with the late start.
Here are some of the cars that made it out to the cruise-in:
With only three shows in the area, the schedule of Sunday events was significantly leaner than Saturday. The biggest show of the day was the 38th Annual Poor Man's Nationals held at the Past Time park in Plain City, Ohio.
Beautiful weather graced the Central
Ohio Area for a second day attracting 272 vehicles to the show from all over the area.
Organized by the Buckeye Rod Builders, the show offered music, door prizes, 50/50 raffles, food concessions, and games for both young and old.
This was my first time attending the Poor Man's National. The size of the Past Time park is large enough to easily handle the number automobiles. But unfortunately much of the road surface in and around the park is gravel. A LOT of dust was kicked up by cars coming in and out of the park. Depending on where you parked, your vehicle could end up a different color by the end of the show.
My friends and I parked back among the trees, well off the beaten path. We decided shade and less dust was more important than a little tree sap on our cars.
