Are you in need of parts to get that classic car or motorcycle of yours back on the road and show ready? Or are you just looking for something to do until spring arrives? In either case here's the Central Ohio swap meet schedule for 2020.
Well, everyone, the time has finally come. This will be the last Upcoming Events post for 2019. These are the last outdoor events in Central Ohio for this season.
I plan to post a new "Save the Dates" page for 2020 sometime in January or February once more shows pop up on the schedule. The weekly upcoming events will return next April.
Please stay tuned for my annual The Good, The Bad and The Ugly post which will recap the 2019 season. I'll rank the best shows, best cars, best food and some of the uglier things that happened from the shows and cruise-ins I attended this year. I hope to have it up on the site the week of November 18 - 22.
One last thing to note is the November Springfield Swap Meet & Car Show only holds the car show event on Saturday. Don't go over Friday looking to show your vehicle. It's a swap meet only that day.
For the first time this season, no new events have been added to the Save the Dates Part Two page. I think all the shows and cruise-ins for the remainder of the season have finally been announced.
Quick Reminder: This Thursday Der Dutchman in Plain City, Ohio is trying to set a record of 300 cars at their cruise-in! If you're not doing anything that evening, bring your car out to Der Dutchman and be part of a record.

As I wrote in last week's report, I did not attend any events this weekend because of family visiting from out-of-town. However, I did have eyes and ears at several shows in the area, just not my own.
Springfield Spring Swap Meet and Car Shows
The Clark County Fairgrounds in Springfield, Ohio is home to four swap meets each year (spring, fall, winter, and February). Along with being some of the largest swap meets in the midwest, the spring, fall, and winter meets also include car shows as part of the festivities. The shows are held on both Saturday and Sunday during the spring and fall events, and just on Saturday for the winter meet.
This year 142 cars turned out for the Saturday show. With a forecast calling for rain and thunderstorms, the Sunday show only had 15 cars.
Twenty-five awards are presented at each show. There are no special awards or Best of Show. The judges just pick their top 25 vehicles.
