NEWS AND NOTES:
The weather this past week once again played havoc with events. After reaching 80-degree temperatures on the weekend, mother nature decided to bring winter back.
A few more cars turned out this week for the Tuesday Evening Cruise-In in Plain City despite the 40-degree temperatures.
Marysville Muscle/Honda Powersports Bike Night:
Weather-wise, Friday ended up being the best day of the weekend. This resulted in a good turnout for the combined Marysville Muscle and Honda Marysville Power Sports Bike Night end-of-the-month meet-up. By my estimates, there were more than 50 cars and bikes. Guelaguetza Mexican Street Food was on hand providing food and refreshments. Beer sales and the 50/50 raffle raised $389 for Pets for Heroes.
Spring Fling Car and Truck Show:
Morning rain and wet roads kept a lot of folks home on Saturday. The Spring Fling Car and Truck Show in downtown Columbus had only 20 cars in attendance. Our good friend, Dale Pearce, and his 1950 Chevy pickup took Best of Show honors.
DDSR Performance Car Meet:
Of the two shows I was interested in attending on Sunday, the early morning rain canceled one and postponed the other. My third pick was the DDSR Performance Car Meet at Miguel Detailing in Columbus.
The event attracted between 30 and 40 cars. A Ferrari showed up, several Porsches, and a lot of Mustangs. Food and drinks were available for the partaking. Everyone that brought a car got to vote for their three favorite vehicles. The top five vote-getters received a t-shirt. The car with the most votes not only got a t-shirt but also a Chemical Guys Wash and Shine Kit. Much to my surprise, my Camaro ZL1 received the most votes so I have a bucket of Chemical Guys products to try. All in all, it turned out to be a very nice event.
Circleville First Church Spring Auto Show:
The final show to report on this week is the Circleville First Church Spring Auto Show. The event registered 53 cars. The Best of Show award went to Derrick Malloy and his 1966 Chevy Impala.
I hate to finish this week's report on a sad note, but we lost another cruiser with the passing of Douglas Leopard early Tuesday morning.
Doug was a member of the Mid Ohio Cruisers Car Club. He was a regular participant in car events around the Marysville and Marion areas. Many of you may recognize him by his red 1940 Ford Coupe.
Our condolences go out to his family. Doug will be missed.
Special thanks to Jeff Shankle and Dale Pearce for their contribution to this week's report.
