Cruis’in City Barbeque

Showers on Thursday cancelled the Der Dutchman week 7 cruise-in.  Despite the cancellation, about 17 cars showed up including yours truly.  Everyone stuck around until about 7 PM before heading home.

Showers again on Friday evening cancelled my trip to Delaware and the First Friday Cruise-in hosted by the Delaware Vintage Auto Club. This left Sunday as my only day to do a car show over the weekend.  With Goodguys still in town,  there were only two local shows in the area.  It was either cruise at City Barbeque on East Main Street or cruise at the Yacht Club at Buckeye Lake.  I chose to stay closer to home and attend the show at City Barbeque.


I'm not exactly sure who organized the show. The Old Ride entry listed Harold and Big Daddy (Rick Hoffman) as coordinators. There was a trailer by the registration table with a Pasttime Cruisers sign on the side.  Another show back in May at the Great Southern Shopping involved the Pasttime Cruisers.  I suspect Harold and Big Daddy are part of this group.  If anyone has information about the Pastime Cruisers please feel free to post it in the comments section.

The weather on Sunday couldn't have been better for a car show.  The good weather brought out 67 registered vehicles.  A few cars still had their Goodguys sticker on the windshield.

The last time I participated in a car show at City Barbeque on Main Street was almost two years ago.  The parking area was a torn up mess back then and is still a torn up mess today.  I saw a couple of people almost trip over the crumbling chunks of blacktop.  The area seriously needs resurfaced before someone falls and breaks something.


The show offered door prizes, a 50/50 raffle, and music from the 50s and 60s. There were 30 "Favorite" trophies and a "Best of Show".




Here are some of the "Favorite" vehicles and those that caught my attention.

The "Best of Show" award went to the 1934 standard three window Chevy coupe of Alan and Beth Dill.   A beautiful car and definitely a Buckeye fan favorite!

This weekend I will be attending both days of the Arthritis Classic Auto Show and Cruise-in in Dublin, Ohio.  Look for a big report from the show next week. Until then, I hope to see everyone out there cruising.
