Another month of the season is in the books. Only two and half months of events left for this year.
This week's list includes events scheduled on Labor Day, and boy is this holiday weekend packed. The 10-day forecast calls for cooler temperatures. Let's hope it's accurate.
NEWS AND NOTES:
Der Dutchman Cruise-In:
Although a drop of rain never fell on the Der Dutchman Restaurant in Plain City, Ohio Thursday evening, the weather around the area kept attendance down to 77 cars. I got caught in a downpour driving through Dublin, Ohio on my way to the cruise-in. My black Camaro needs a thorough washing this week as it's a mess.
Jay Vanscoy Car Show:
The Hilliard, Ohio Church of Christ hosted the first Annual Jay Vanscoy Car Show on Saturday. The show is a memorial to Jay Vanscoy, the son of Senior Minister Danny Vanscoy. Jay passed away in January.
The show registered 55 cars. The registration fee was $15 and included a tee-shirt, a very nice "goodie" bag, and a door prize raffle ticket.
The Church presented three awards, People's Choice, Preacher's Pick, and Best of Show. Here are the award-winning cars. See a common theme here?
1937 Ford Convertible
Owner: Dave Bratton
1957 Chevy Bel Air Convertible
Owner: William Erlenbach
1964 Chevy Corvette Convertible

Plain City Classic Car Cruise-In:
Chapman Ford and the Uptown Plain City Organization hosted their 18th annual Plain City Classic Car Cruise-In in downtown Plain City, Ohio Saturday afternoon.
The event registered 135 vehicles. Ribbons were presented to the Top 40 cars. There were several special award trophies and a Best of Show.
This year's Best of Show Award went to Dave and Jane Winkle and their 1958 Chevy Corvette convertible.
Krieger Ford Mustang & Ford Car Show:
The Mustang Club of Ohio and Krieger Ford held their 47th Annual ALL Mustang and Ford Car Show on Sunday at the Krieger Ford Dealership in Columbus, Ohio.
As a Camaro and Corvette owner, the hour and a half I was at the show taking photos was tough on me, but for the good of the Central Ohio car community, I managed to hang in there long enough to get some nice photos.
In all seriousness, I saw a lot of very nice cars. By my unofficial count, there were between 125 and 130 cars registered. If you're into Mustangs and Fords or just cars in general, Krieger Ford was the place to be Sunday afternoon.
There was no overall Best of Show winner. Each Mustang and Ford was entered into a class based on model year, model, and mods. Awards were presented to the top cars in each class based on points.

14th Annual Car Show at Culp Lake:
The car show at Culp Lake in Springfield, Ohio attracted 144 cars on Sunday. The show is in a park-like setting so there were plenty of trees around to escape some of the heat.
Other Area Shows:
- Bob Pool Orphan Car Show in Yellow Springs, Ohio registered 98 cars on Saturday
- Moundbuilders Motor Mania in Newark on Sunday had 68 cars participate in the show
- Another big turn out for Columbus Cars and Coffee at Esoteric. Watch on YouTube.
