NEWS AND NOTES:
It was crazy April weather in Ohio this past week. At the Plain City Tuesday Evening Cruise, temperatures were in the 40s with wind chills in the 30s.
By Saturday they had warmed into the 80s.
Friday Gathering at Sonic:
The Sonic Drive-In in Heath, Ohio had almost 40 cars turn out this week for their Friday Gathering.
Columbus Cars & Coffee:
The two Columbus Cars & Coffee groups held simultaneous meets on Saturday morning. The one held their weekly Saturday morning affair at the City Apartments on Olentangy River Rd in Columbus while the other held their first meet of the season at the Midwest Auto Group (MAG) dealership in Dublin, Ohio.

Toy Barn Spring Car Show:
Sunday morning the Toy Barn in Dublin, Ohio held their spring car show. The dealership pre-registered 270 vehicles for the event. Thanks to the nice weather, the show drew a huge crowd of spectators.
Someone, I won’t name names, used the event to polish his car. Boots from Auto Smarts Radio provided expert supervision.

The big event this weekend was the sold out Import Face-Off at National Trail Raceway in Hebron, Ohio. I don’t own an import nor do any of my friends so, unfortunately, I don’t have anything to report. I would really like to hear from anyone who attended the event. If you were there, please feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section.
Special thanks to Dave Bratton and Jeff Shankle for sharing their photos for this week's report.
