Inaugural Toy Barn Car Show a Huge Success

On Saturday morning, the Toy Barn dealership in Dublin, Ohio held its first ever car show.

The dealership pre-registered 144 vehicle.  The early morning wet roads kept a few of those pre-registered cars away, however, the show still managed to attract well over 100 cars by my estimation.

Jake Ballard, former Ohio State and New York Giants, tight-end was on hand  along with 97.1 The Fan Sports Radio.

Live entertainment was provided throughout the morning by Evan Blankenship.


Everyone who registered a vehicle received a goody bag and tickets for two complimentary meals from the food truck.  In addition to the complimentary meals and goody bag, The Toy Barn also raffled off five, free oil changes and a $500 Marathon gas card.

Tim Foreman was the lucky winner of the $500 gas card. Tim owns a 2016 yellow Camaro SS convertible you may have seen at Der Dutchman or the Creekside Gahanna show.

While the majority of cars were above the year 2000, there was still a nice selection of "classics" that participated in the show.  Many of these "classics" you probably recognize from other shows around the area.

The Toy Barn has a reputation for selling pre-owned high-end cars. So as you can imagine, there was a fair number of exotic cars on display. 

The show also had a strong representation of modern muscle, imports, and the unusual.

 The Toy Barn ownership and staff should be commended for putting on a well run inaugural event.  It turned out to be a fun morning.  I look forward to participating in the 2nd Annual Toy Barn Car Show next year.
