NEWS AND NOTES

This week's report covers a wide area of shows from Coshocton to Urbana, Ohio.

Der Dutchman Cruise-In:

The restaurant's weekly cruise-in had the largest attendance so far this season with 413 cars.

This week's cruise-in was a memorial to loved ones who are no longer here. A table was set up by the food/registration shack so that people could display memories of their friends, family members, or whoever they wanted to remember.

Wayne Nisly who manages the cruise-in announced that milkshakes have been added to the menu.

This week's unique/unusual vehicle award goes to Charlie O'Neill and Tom Thompson for their Burgundy Bandit. The entire place paused for a moment when they fired it up to take it off the trailer.

Empty Pockets Cruisers Dave & Busters Car & Bike Show:

The last time the Empty Pockets Cruisers Car Club hosted a car show at Dave & Buster's Restaurant in Hilliard, Ohio was June 13, 2021. After a two-year hiatus and a completely remodeled Dave & Buster's, the club returned on Saturday to host another car show at the restaurant.

This year the club registered 109 cars. Jim McGruder was again the DJ and MC for the show.

The club presented a total of 50 award plaques. There were 45 "Favorite" awards plus five "Specialty" awards. The "Specialty" awards included Favorite Motorcycle, DJ's Choice, Dave & Buster's Choice, Sponsors Choice, and Empty Pockets Cruisers Choice, a.k.a Best of Show.

The Favorite Motorcycle went to William Russell with a 2013 Harley Davidson Street Glide.

The 25th Anniversary 1992 Chevy Camaro RS belonging to Mark Schlueb received Dave & Buster's Choice Award.

Jim McGruder's DJ's Choice went to Christopher Gibbs with a 2016 Dodge Challenger Shaker 392.

Rod Scott and his 1958 Dodge D-100 Sweptside pickup received the Sponsors Choice.

The Empty Pockets Cruisers Choice (a.k.a Best of Show) was Robert Rutowkski's 1971 Pontiac GTO.

Immaculate Conception Parish Car Show:

The Immaculate Conception Parish in Columbus, Ohio held its 6th annual Car Show on Saturday.

The show registered 38 cars. There was a total of nine awards, Five trophies for People's Choice and four "Show Favorite". The People's Choice awards included Best Paint, Best Engine, Best Interior, Best Overall and "Cutest".

Best Interior went to John Hughes with a 1966 Volkswagon.

Jack Leffel's 1940 Ford pickup received the Best Engine Award. You may remember Jack's pickup from the May 28 to June 2, 2024 News and Notes where it was picked as the Unique/Unusual vehicle at the Der Dutchman Cruise-In.

The 1966 Corvette belonging to Fred Davis was voted Best Paint.

Dave Bratton's 1937 Wild Rod Ford was voted "Best Overall", a.k.a Best of Show.

Here are more cars from the show:

Cruise-In • Brews 2024:

The Pickerington Lions Clubs and Combustion Brewery & Taproom with the help of Big Dawg and the C-Town Cruisers hosted the 2024 Cruise-In • Brews Car Show on Saturday in Pickerington, Ohio.

There were 100 cars in attendance. Best of Show went to Doug Porter and his 1966 Chevy Nova.

Corvettes at Roscoe Village:

I don't normally list or cover shows east of Newark, Ohio. But I make an exception for the All-Corvette Show at Roscoe Village in Coshocton, Ohio. As you'll see, there's plenty of interest in this event from Central Ohio cruisers to include it on the list each year.

The show is put on by the Classic Glass Corvette Club. The historical Roscoe Village makes a very unique venue for a car show.

This year the club registered 187 Corvettes. Awards were presented for first, second, and third place for each generation of Corvette except for the 8th generation. That generation had a 4th place award. There were also "Specialty" Awards and a Best of Show.

Here are the Central Ohio cruisers that won awards:

Quentin Sayers received the 2nd Place Award in the C3 Category for his 1969 Corvette.

2nd Place in the C5 Category also went to Quentin Sayer for his 2000 Corvette driven by Miss M.

Jim McGruder's 2020 Corvette Stingray received 4th Place in the C8 Category.

3rd Place in the C8 Category went to Jeff Irwin's 2024 Corvette Z06.

Steve Kidwell and Nancy received the Classic Glass Corvette Club Choice for their 1954 Corvette.

The Street Elite Corvette Club received the Club Participation Award.

David Hahn and his 1954 Corvette took home The Best of Show honors.

Overall, it was a well-organized show at a unique venue. My only complaint which is common to most downtown shows is not being able to hear the PA announcements if you happen to be parked at the far ends of the street. I missed the first part of the award ceremony for that very reason.

Here are more Corvettes from the show:

NEWS AND NOTES

Der Dutchman Cruise-In:

Another Thursday evening of perfect weather led to 320 cars in attendance at the Der Dutchman Cruise-In.

This coming Thursday, June 6th, will be a special Memorial Cruise-In, Remembering Our Loved Ones.

A table will be set up for anyone to bring memories of a loved one you wish to honor be it a spouse, friend, parent, or other family member.

It should be a big night if the weatherman cooperates.

Honda Motorsports Marysville Bike & Car Night:

Honda Motorsports in Marysville, Ohio held its monthly bike and car night on Friday evening.

Besides a few hours each month to hang out with your bike and car buddies, the event offers free food from the Triple P Barbeque Co. food truck, giveaways, refreshments, and dyno runs of your motorcycle.

With the nice weather on Friday, there was a good mix of cars and bikes.

Richwood Bank Coffee & Cars:

The Richwood Bank in Delaware, Ohio hosted its second Coffee and Cars Cruise-in of the season on Saturday morning.

Bryan Mauger brought his 1970 Monte Carlo and the owners of his previous 1972 Monte Carlo stopped by the cruise-in. This provided a nice opportunity for a side-by-side photo of the two cars.

The lucky winner of the raffle drawing went home with a bottle of Horse Soldier Straight Bourbon Whiskey.

Bryan Lewis Memorial Car Show:

The second annual Bryan Lewis Memorial Car Show took place Saturday at the Upper Arlington Lutheran Church in Hilliard, Ohio. Carz and Causez hosted the show for the second year in a row. Jim McGruder was the DJ and MC. Food and refreshments were provided by the High School Ministry of the Upper Arlington Lutheran Church. There was the option to pay for your food with a credit card which you don't see at most car shows.

The show registered 132 cars on Saturday. Awards plaques were presented to the "Favorite" 45 plus five "Specialty" awards. The Specialty awards included DJ's Choice, Church Choice, Charity's Choice, Sponsors Choice, and the Bryan Lewis Memorial Award. The winner of the Bryan Lewis Award also received a custom-made trophy in the form of a table lamp.

Here are the "Specialty" winners:

This year's Bryan Lewis Memorial Award went to Dave Chase with a 1969 Chevy Camaro.

Final Thoughts: You couldn't ask for a better-organized show. The parking lot of the Upper Arlington Lutheran Church is huge with wide parking spaces. There were clean restroom facilities inside the Church. The awards presentation started and 3 PM and was finished before 3:30 PM. Hats off to Carz and Causez for a show well done.

Crossroads Car, Truck, & Bike Show at Chubby Hawaiian:

The Crossroads Events team was back at the Chubby Hawaiian Grill in Baltimore, Ohio on Saturday hosting the June car show at the restaurant.

This month it was two C7 Corvettes taking home the top awards.

NEWS AND NOTES

I'm sad to report we lost another Central Ohio cruiser last week with the unexpected passing of Thad Lee Roberts. Thad was 59 years old.

Many of you will recognize Thad from his cars. He most often drove his 1973 Chevy Camaro RS/Z28 to shows. He also showed a 1970 Dodge Dart Swinger and a 1972 Chevy Nova.

Our condolences go out to his family. Here is his obituary with information regarding visitation and funeral service.

Der Dutchman Cruise-In:

It was another big evening at the restaurant's weekly cruise-in. Attendance this past Thursday reached 280 cars.

This week's unique/unusual car is the 1940 Ford pickup belonging to Jack Leffel. I think you'll understand from the photos why the pickup is so unique.

If there was a Best of Show award, in my opinion, it would go to this 1960 Chevy Impala.

A Ford Bronco Raptor Edition made an appearance on Thursday. I have to admit it was a damn cool SUV.

The Heart of Grove City Car, Truck, & Bike Show:

Shaun "Big Dawg" Sanders and the C-Town Cruisers were in Grove City, Ohio on Saturday for the first of three Heart of Grove City Car, Truck, & Bike Shows this season.

The show registered 70 cars.

Live music was provided by the 3C Highway Band during the first half of the show.

Awards were presented to the Top 35 cars and trucks along with awards for MOPO (Most Potential)/Rat Rod, Best Bike, Best Truck, and Best of Show.

The MOPO/Rat Rod award went to Brian Black and his 1976 "Chebby" G10 Van.

The Best Bike award would have gone to this 2024 Yamaha MT-07 but the owner left before the end of the show.

Doug Glassburn's 1972 Chevy C-10 Stepside pickup received the Best Truck Award.

The Best of Show honors went to Jim Loftus with a 1957 Chevy Bel Air.

Crossroads Car, Truck, & Bike Show at Earthworks Cafe at Newark Station:

Frank Russell and his Crossroads Events team hosted their first-ever car show at Earthworks Cafe at Newark Station in Newark, Ohio on Saturday.

The team presented 34 awards at the end of the show.

The Veteran Owned Award went to Dave Byers and his 1989 Chevy Corvette.

For the second week in a row, David Anderson took home Best of Show honors with his 1949 supercharged Ford Tudor convertible.

Next up for the Crossroads Events Team is a show at the Chubby Hawaiian in Baltimore, Ohio on Saturday, June 1st.

Feast of the Flowering Moon Car Show:

Downtown Chillicothe, Ohio was the site of the Feast of the Flowering Moon Car Show on Saturday.

The show presented awards to the Top 25 plus eight "Special Category" awards including "Feast Choice" aka Best of Show.

Attendance totaled 130 cars with 118 of them registered.

Our good friend, Dale Pearce, took home the Feast Choice Award along with a Top 25 for his 1950 Chevy 3100 pickup.

The Scioto Post did a nice write-up on Dale and his truck. You can read the article posted on its website here.

NEWS AND NOTES

With better-than-expected weather this past weekend and lots of events on the schedule, this week's News and Notes is a big one!

Der Dutchman Cruise-In:

Perfect weather on Thursday evening brought out 283 cars to the Der Dutchman Cruise-In in Plain City, Ohio.

When the weather is nice, you can count on something unique or unusual to show up at the cruise-in. This week it was a street-legal NASCAR race car once driven by Jeremy Mayfield. The car garnered a lot of attention when it showed up.

Columbus Cars and Coffee at Esoteric Fine Auto Finishing:

Postponing Cars and Coffee at Esoteric for two weeks because of the weather turned out to be a good decision. With little to no rain in the forecast, a packed house of cars and spectators turned out for the Saturday morning Cars and Coffee.

There was the usual array of gorgeous exotics but also a nice mix of Classic American Muscle cars.

Two cars caught my attention during the morning. The first was a black Porsche GT3 RS with gold wheels, yellow calipers, and yellow stitching on the interior. The car just looked like it would be wicked fast around a track.

The second car was a restored 1963 split-window Corvette. The chassis was custom-made by Coffman Corvette out of Mansfield, Ohio. The powertrain was GM's small block LS3 engine. The Corvette was certainly Best of Show quality.

Esoteric Fine Auto Finishing will host another Columbus Cars and Coffee on September 14. If the weather is good, it's worth the drive to New Albany.

Cruisin' with the King:

The Mid Ohio Cruisers Car Club held its May show at the Burger King on Rt. 31 in Marysville, Ohio.

The show registered 64 cars but had a total of 80 cars in attendance Saturday evening.

Each month the Club picks its "Favorite" 15 cars to receive a unique award plaque from those who registered. And by the way, registration is always free.

Here are this month's "Favorite" picks:

NEWS AND NOTES

The weather seems to be in this rain-every-other-day pattern with the last two Saturdays being rain days.

The Conkey Classic Car Show got ahead of the game and on Friday postponed its show to June 30th.

Der Dutchman had about 12 cars on Thursday thanks to the rain. I heard everyone who showed up got a free hot dog.

Creative Auto Group/Advanced Auto Parts Car Show:

The Creative Auto Group and the Advanced Auto Parts store in Marysville, Ohio held their third show of the season on Friday under clear skies. The show registered 25 cars and raised $180 for Marysville Food Pantry.

The Manager's Picks this month were Ron Griffith and his 1950 Ford F1 Pickup, Mark Larison with a 1965 Ford Cobra, Kenny and Sue G and their 2016 Challenger Hellcat, and yours truly with a 2023 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing.

Hilliard 2nd Friday NAPA Cruise-In:

The 2nd Friday of the month cruise-in at the NAPA store in Hilliard, Ohio was also blessed with clear skies and no rain. Estimates have attendance at around 45 - 50 cars on Friday evening.

Here are some of the cars that attended the cruise-in:


Columbus Cars & Coffee at Starbucks:

With a limited schedule on Sunday because of Mother's Day, and no rain in the forecast, I decided to stop by Columbus Cars and Coffee at Starbucks in Westerville, Ohio.

I would guess between 40 and 45 cars stopped by during the 90 minutes I was there.

I had a nice conversation with Chuck Putsch owner of the blue 1961 Morgan 4/4 Series III you see at a lot of shows and cruise-ins. Chuck and his Morgan Club are gearing up for the British Car Days at Quaker Steak and Lube next weekend.

Here are a few more cars from the morning Cars and Coffee:

Other Area Shows:

Two shows that went on despite the rain showers on Saturday morning were the Spring Fling All Corvette Show at Quaker Steak & Lube in Columbus, Ohio. The second show was the Carroll Lions downtown car show in Carroll, Ohio.

This was the second year in a row the Spring Fling had to deal with rain. The show registered 115 cars on Saturday. Our good friend, Marc Cropper, braved the wet conditions and received a Top Five award for his 1991 Corvette.

After the morning showers passed, the downtown Carroll Lions Show registered 57 cars.

Members of the Old Goats Car Club, Dave Hiles, Chad Herrick, and Doug Mullens went home with Top 25 awards.

The Best of Show award went to David Ray's 1937 Studebaker Dictator 6.

That's all I have for this week. A big thanks to Jeff Shankle, Arch Mayer, Dale Pearce, Chad Herrick, Lynn Raduege, Marc Cropper, and John Crutcher for their contributions to this week's report.

NEWS AND NOTES

Der Dutchman Cruise-In:

The Der Dutchman Restaurant in Plain City, Ohio held its first cruise-in of the season on Thursday.

There were 273 cars in attendance. A pop-up shower around 6:15 PM dampened (no pun intended) what was otherwise a perfect evening for the season-opening cruise-in.

As always, lots of cool rides turned out for the cruise-in.

As luck would have it, Mother Nature decided to be very uncooperative this weekend. Scattered showers throughout the entire Central Ohio area for most of the weekend had a major effect on attendance.

Mag's Gospel Cruise-In:

The rain held off Friday evening, but the chance of rain kept attendance down at Mag's Gospel Cruise-In in Columbus.

Bruce Hoover's 2010 Harley Davidson Electra Glide Rat Fink motorcycle took home Best Bike and Best of Show awards.

Roundtown Cruisers Summer Cruise Nights:

The Roundtown Cruisers hosted its second Summer Cruise Night of the season in downtown Circleville, Ohio Friday evening.

There were 68 cars in attendance despite some early rain showers that eventually cleared out.

The Sponsor's Choice Award went to Neil Colter with a 1968 Dodge Dart GT.

Gathering Place Car Show:

With the help of Dragin' Angels, the Gathering Place Church in Washington Court House, Ohio held its second annual car show on Saturday. There were 38 cars in attendance.

Dale Pearce's 1950 Chevy 3100 pickup received the Best Truck Award.

Best of Show honors went to Tye Campbell and his 1972 Chevy Nova.

Crossroads Car, Truck, & Bike Show at Chubby Hawaiian Grill:

The Crossroads team hosted its first car show of the season on Saturday at the Chubby Hawaiian Grill in Baltimore, Ohio.

Tim Hooten took home the Veteran Owned Award with his 1964 MG.

Jess Weldy's 2021 Ford Mustang received the Best of Show Award.

The Crossroads team will be back at the Chubby Hawaiian Grill on June 1.

The Paul Raduege Car Show:

The rain decided to take the afternoon off on Sunday just in time for the 2nd Annual Paul Raduege Car Show at the Outerbelt Brewing in Carroll, Ohio.

With the help of the Lancaster Car Scene (LCS), the show registered 54 cars.

Everyone who registered a car received a door prize ticket for a chance to win a bucket of car care products or coffee from Shifted Coffee. There was also a 50/50 raffle. The winner took home $117.

There were awards for the Top 30 along with category awards for Best Jeep, Best Truck, Best Bike, Best Muscle, Best Import, Lynn Raduege's Choice, and Best of Show.

Here are the Category Award Winners:

Since Paul Raduege was one of the founding members of the Old Goats Car Club, it's no surprise that the Club received the LCS Battle of the Clubs Top Club Award.

And finally, The Best of Show honors went to Paul Armstrong and his 1963 Chevy C10 pickup.

Other Shows:

Our good friend, Arch Mayer, was at Fortress Obetz on Thursday for the first Full Throttle Thursdays Cruise-In of the season.

Arch estimated there were at least 100 cars, trucks, and Jeeps in attendance along with well over 100 bikes. He thought this was the best turnout the event had ever had.


That concludes this week's report. Many thanks to Chad Herrick, Dale Pearce, Frank Russell, and Arch Mayer for their help in preparing this report.

Next Monday I have the wonderful pleasure of having a colonoscopy first thing in the morning. I'm going to try to post next week's list of events late Sunday evening in between trips to the bathroom.
