Der Dutchman Hits the Magic 100

Started the week with a stop at the Powell Ruby Tuesday.  Larry Walters is working hard to get this weekly cruise-in off the ground.

Only 10 cars showed up this week.  A couple of C7 Corvettes came for the first time which gave me the opportunity to take a photo of Chevy's current performance products.
A rare 1964 Plymouth Valiant v8 with 4 speed manual transmission also made an appearance. If you're looking for something to do on Tuesday evening, stop by Ruby Tuesday.  Bring a "classic" car or truck and you'll get 10% off your bill at the restaurant.


Der Dutchman Week-6 Sets a New Record

A couple big things happened this week for the Der Dutchman cruise-in. First,  Wayne Nisley was back in his role as host of the cruise-in after a week hiatus for a health issue.  Second,  Wayne made it back just in time to see the cruise-in set a milestone with 100 registered vehicles.


Wayne promised if the cruise-in ever hit 100 vehicles, everyone that brought a car or truck would get a cup of ice cream on the house. Unfortunately, the ice cream machine decided to stop working after serving the third cup. Everyone, however, who didn't get ice cream was given a rain check to get their free cup at any of the remaining cruise-ins.

To help reach the 100 mark, the cruise-in had 29 vehicles make an appearance for the very first time. Here are some of the first time cars and trucks.

The contrasting green colors of the Jeep wrangler of Greg Nobis and the Volkswagen Beetle next to it was a little rough on the eyes.

This Mustang, Mazda MX-5 Miata,  2013 Dodge Challenger RT Hemi, and 1958 Studebaker Champion were also new this week.

Besides the free ice cream, Der Dutchman also celebrated the new attendance record by  raffling off a few extra desserts and an extra $30 gift card.

Congratulations to Wayne and the management of Der Dutchman for their hard work to grow the cruise-in into what it is today.
