Seniors at Olentangy Trail Make Their Picks From More Than 50 Cars

Wednesday evening The Inn at Olentangy Trail senior Center registered 56 vehicles for their third annual car show. More than double of what turned out for the first show in 2017.

Cars from as far away as Marion and Bucyrus drove down to participate in the show. By 5 PM parking was at a premium.

Even Boots from Auto Smarts Radio stopped by with his "BADD '57".

Show registration was $10. The Inn served hot dogs, corn on the cob, chips and a beverage for the cost of whatever you wanted to donate. There were door prize baskets and a 50/50 raffle. All proceeds from the show go to Alzeheimer's Association.

A bunch of very nice vehicles participated in the show. Some of the notable ones included Told Walker's 1968 Ford Shelby GT 500.

Susannah Sinard with a 1956 Ford T-Bird.

The 1940 Cadillac Fleetwood belonging to Dave Fisher (Best of Show winner at the Grace Chapel show )

And Ron and Diana Riser's 1952 Henry J.


Award plaques were presented to the top three vehicles as voted on by the residents living at The Inn at Olentangy Trail.

This year's picks were:

First place went to Floyd and Ann Keck with a 1993 Dodge Stealth ES.

Second place went to the 1932 Ford Roadster belonging to Terry Honaker.

The third place winner left before the awards presentation so the fourth place vote getter, Tank with a 1967 Chevy Chevelle, received the award.

I think the larger than expected turned out took the organizers a little by surprise. They handled it well, however. Parking could have easily gotten out of control

It would have been nice to have a few more awards, but then again who thought more than 50 cars would show up. Overall I'd give the show a solid A rating. The fact it raised money for an important cause was icing on the cake.
