NEWS AND NOTES

Not much to report this week. It sounds like the weather in Ohio was more winter-like than spring-like this past weekend. I even heard there might have been a snow flurry or two.

You may notice that I'm posting earlier than usual. My wife is having back surgery on Monday. Putting this out today means one less thing to do tomorrow. Any information I receive regarding the Sunday events, I'll include with next week's report.

I did a minor re-organization of the Recurring events on the "Save the Dates for 2023". I've grouped the events as weekly, monthly, twice a month, and promotor/DJ schedules. I hope this makes it easier to find all those recurring events and schedules. There seems to be a bunch of them this year.

I want to close this week by thanking all those who have sent me flyers. You can't imagine how much that helps me keep up with events. Please keep them coming.

NEWS AND NOTES

Creative Automotive/Advanced Auto Parts Car Show:

Creative Automotive and the Advanced Auto Parts store in Marysville, Ohio hosted its first car show of the season on Friday evening.

The show had 36 cars in attendance and raised $235 for Cindy and JP Culp Jr who lost their father, Doug, to cancer last week.

This first month's "Favorite" picks went to:

Cruisin' with the King:

The Mid Ohio Cruisers Car Club held its first Cruisin' with the King show of the season Saturday evening at the Burger King on Route 31 in Marysville, Ohio.

The club registered 70 plus cars. Awards were presented to the club's 15 "Favorite" cars from those that were registered. There were door prizes and a 50/50 raffle. And if you got hungry and/or thirsty, Burger King was right there.

Here are a few of the cars from Saturday's show:

Columbus Cars and Coffee at the City:

It was another packed parking lot on Saturday morning for Columbus Cars and Coffee at the City Apartments. This week had a little more excitement than normal as two cars decided to blow hoses. One blew the power steering hose and sprayed power steering fluid all over a hot exhaust causing quite a bit of smoke. The other car blew its radiator hose and dropped coolant all over the parking lot.

Fortunately, most of the cars on Saturday morning kept their hoses intact.

Special Request:

If anyone planning to attend the Import Face-Off next Sunday would like to send photos and a brief write-up about the event, I will be sure to include it with next week's report. Email photos and write-ups to hawk02@carshowtalk.com.


I want to thank Jeff Shankle, Dave Bratton, and Dale Pearce for their help with his week's report.

I'll close with some of the cars that attended the Car Guys Sonic Friday Nights in Hebron, Ohio, and the Columbus Cars & Coffee at Starbucks in Westerville, Ohio on Sunday morning.

NEWS AND NOTES

The cruise-ins and meet-ups this past weekend got a significant bump in attendance from the improved weather.

About 50 cars turned out for the River Pop-Up Meet in Upper Arlington on Friday evening.

The Marysville Mustang Club had a very successful season opener on Saturday. At one point during the afternoon, there was a line of cars 30-40 deep entering the parking lot at C&N Motor Cars.

When there's decent weather on a Saturday morning, you can count on a packed parking lot at Columbus Cars & Coffee at the City Apartments in Columbus. This past Saturday was no exception.


That's it for this week. A big thanks to Jeff Shankle for sharing his photos from this past weekend. And to Marco Gallardo for sharing the aerial photo of the Marysville Mustang Club's season opener.

1965 Ford Mustang 2+2 - Owners: Steve & Diane Storts

The schedule is fairly light this week. Other than Columbus Cars & Coffee at Starbucks in Westerville, there is nothing else scheduled on Sunday since it is Easter. I did confirm that Starbucks will be open on Easter Sunday for those of you in the mood for a cinnamon dolce latte.

NEWS AND NOTES

Not much to report this week. Thanks to the weather, attendance at the Rod Knockers show in Marion on Saturday evening was rather sparse (around 25 cars total). Had a cool award plaque, though.

The weather improved a little bit on Sunday but not by much. The first cruise-in of the year at the Heart of Ohio Antique Center in Springfield, Ohio saw about 50 cars in attendance.

Marysville Motors, formerly known as Maryville Muscle, held its first monthly cruise-in of the season on Sunday. The group has changed locations this year from the Honda Marysville Motorsports parking lot to Ramsey's Parkway Drive-Thru, Pizza, and Pub. The date and time have also changed and are now the first Sunday of the month from 1 - 4 PM. About 25 cars attended the first cruise-in at Ramsey's.

Special thanks to Jeff Shankle and Heather Mershon for sharing their photos for this week's report.

I'm going to close with a few photos from the Columbus Spring Swap Meet held at the Ohio Expo Center on Saturday and Sunday.
