Fall-Like Weather Fuels Large Attendance at Two Cruise Ins


After rain cancelled the previous week's cruise-in,  the fall-like weather on Thursday fueled a record 103 automobiles at the weekly Der Dutchman cruise-in in Plain City, Ohio.  This is the second cruise-in this season to see 100 or more vehicles.  This week also saw 18 participants new to the cruise-in.

Here's a sampling of autos from Thursday evening.


Host, Wayne Nisely, and his wife, Luella, raffled off 14 deserts and a $30 gift card at the  end of the cruise-in.  No question the Der Dutchman cruise-in is turning into a popular event on Thursday evenings.


For the third year in a row, Chesrown Chevrolet, Buick, GMC held a cruise-in at their dealership on Rt. 23 the Friday evening before the Delaware downtown car show (formerly known as Blast from the Past) .


By my "unofficial" count,  more than a 160 vehicles attended the cruise-in.  The large number of cars made parking spots extremely limited at the peak of the cruise-in.

Those planning to attend the  Performance Classic Car Show the next day had one last chance to register for the show at a discounted rate. The last count I heard was 174 pre-registered automobiles for the show.

The cruise-in included music and several food trucks.  The Chesrown folks surprised everyone by passing out free detailing kits to cruise-in participants.  A very nice touch!

The nice weather brought out a lot of great cars including a couple hearses and a beautiful 1941 Lincoln Continental.

The Chesrown cruise-in has gotten bigger and better each year.  I can't wait to see what happens for year four.
