NEWS AND NOTES

Der Dutchman Cruise-In:

Good weather on a Thursday evening generally means a lot of cars at the Der Dutchman Cruise-In in Plain City, Ohio. This past Thursday was no exception. There were 353 cars in attendance. A nice percentage of those cars were attending the cruise-in for the first time.

Union Township Firefighter's Association Car Show:

The Union Township Firefighter's Association hosted its Inaugural car show in Milford Center, Ohio on Friday.

Registration was advertised as $15 the day of the show but turned out to be only $10 -- a pleasant surprise. With registration, you received one door-prize ticket. There was also a 50/50 raffle and a separate raffle for a Craftsman Miter Saw.

Dave Bratton won the miter saw.

The show registered 41 cars. There were award plaques for the Top 15 and Best of Show.

Here are 14 of the Top 15 cars:

Talk about a surprise, my 2017 Camaro ZL1 was picked Best of Show. I'm guessing the younger firefighters liked my car.

Zucchinifest Automotion Car Show:

Friday evening saw another big turnout for the Zucchinifest Automotion Car Show at Fortress Obetz in Obetz, Ohio. The show registered 202 cars.

Here's a little slideshow of cars in attendance.

Best of Show went to Brian Dumond and his 1969 Pontiac.

Richwood Bank Coffee & Cars:

The Richwood Bank in Delaware, Ohio hosted its final coffee & cars cruise-in of the season on Saturday morning.

As always, the coffee bar inside the bank was ready to prepare your favorite mocha latte or pour you a plain cup of coffee.

Doug, the bank manager, came around with that peanut butter and chocolate treat sipped through a straw I raved about last month.

The top door prize of a bucket of car cleaning products and a bottle of Henry McKenna bourbon whiskey went to a lucky cruiser. This month several shirts perfect for cruising were also raffled off.

Auto Smart Cruise and Ride at Ten Pin Alley Car Show:

For the second time this season, Dan "Boots" Longenette and the Auto Smarts Radio team were at Ten Pin Alley in Hilliard, Ohio hosting a car show.

The Saturday show registered 75 cars.

Dale Pearce's 1950 Chevy 3100 received the Best Truck award.

The Best of Show honors went to Bryan Mauger and his 1970 Chevy Monte Carlo.

There were lots of beautiful cars at the show. Here are just a few.

Flywheels Car Show:

The Flywheels Car Club out of Marion, Ohio hosted its 3rd Annual Car Show on Saturday.

The show was held at Prospect Park in Prospect, Ohio. With lots of shade, the park made a perfect setting for a car show. There were half a dozen food trucks providing food and refreshments. A Matco Tool truck was also available in case a car needed repair.

The show turned out to be the biggest one on Saturday with 245 registered vehicles.

There were 70 or 80 awards presented at the end of the show. Although it was not officially announced as Best of Show, the final award went to Buddy Glassburn and his 1966 Corvette convertible with an LSA motor.

Here are a few more cars that participated in the Flywheel show.

Tremont City Car/Bike Show & Barbeque:

Tremont City, Ohio held its 13th Annual Car/Bike Show & Barbeque on Saturday.

The show was in honor of Edward "Eddie" Flora. Eddie was a local car race legend out of Springfield, Ohio who passed away in 2016. He still holds the record for the CC/GS Class in drag racing. His passion was building high-performance engines and racing.

The show had over 80 cars in attendance. Ten awards were presented at the end of the show.

The Best of Show/Eddie Flora award went to Kevin Foust and his 1941 Dodge WC40 Weapons Carrier.

Mechanicsburg First Responders Car Show:

The Mechanicsburg, Ohio Fire Department and E.M.S. held their fifth Annual First Responders Car Show on Saturday.

Besides the cars, tons of hot dogs, hamburgers, and fries were grilled up at the firehouse.

This year the show had 130 entries. Awards were presented to the "Top 45" along with 10 "specialty" trophies.

Frank Deering's 2000 Corvette received a Top 45 award.

Best of Show went to Mark Evan's 1969 Camaro. Mark's Camaro has received two BOS and a Runner-up BOS this season.

Dublin AM Rotary Classic Car Show:

On Sunday, the Dublin AM Rotary held its 5th Annual Classic Car Show in the Historic Business District of downtown Dublin, Ohio.

The show had a tremendous amount of spectator traffic throughout the entire event.

The number of cars registered totaled 100.

The flyer advertised trophies for the Top 30 picks and Best of Show. However, only 24 trophies were presented plus the Best of Show. Of the 24 awards, six were special category awards. These included Sports Car, Rotarian, Veterans Award, Motorcycle Pick, Judge's Pick, and a Memorial Trophy honoring Pete Fuhlbrigge. Pete was a "car guy" and Dublin AM Rotarian who passed away suddenly last fall.

Here are the cars that received the special category awards:

The Best of Show Award went to our friend, Harry Ours, and his 1940 Ford Panel Truck.

Canal Winchester Labor Day Festival Car/Truck/Bike Show:

The City of Canal Winchester, Ohio held its 101st Annual Labor Day Festival this past weekend. With the help of Shaun "Big Dawg" Sanders and the C-Town Cruisers, the Festival included a car, truck, and bike show as part of the weekend festivities.

River Car Rally:

The River Church in a Barn held its 21st Annual River Car Rally on Sunday.

The church is a converted barn two miles north of the city of Delaware, Ohio on Route 42.

As long as I can remember the Car Rally has always been on the Sunday of Labor Day weekend and has always had free registration, free hot dogs, snow cones, and popcorn.

This year 97 vehicles attended the Car Rally. The judging was by "People's Choice". Voting for your favorite cars could be done by ballot or on your smartphone. The vehicle with the most votes was awarded the Pastor's Choice Award (aka Best of Show).

The vehicle receiving the most votes and therefore the Pastor's Choice Trophy was Kevin Foust's 1941 Dodge WC40 Weapons Carrier.

The 1936 Plymouth Coupe belonging to Rick and Danielle Grogan was selected Best of Show.

The Crossroads Events team will be back at Eldorado's for two more shows this season, October 8th and November 5th.

Springfield Swap Meet & Car Show:

I would be neglect if I didn't mention the Springfield Swap Meet and Car Show that took place this past weekend at the Clark County Fairgrounds.

The event was only two days (Friday - Saturday) instead of three as in past years. There is NO November Swap Meet and Car Show this year.

Jeff Shankle posted a bunch of photos to his Facebook page from the two-day swap meet. Here are the links to his photos. You'll need a Facebook account to see them.

NEWS AND NOTES

I'm starting off this week's News and Notes with a "Better Late than Never" entry.

Last Sunday Brett Gearhart was kind enough to send me information on the Battle of the Brands Car Show that took place on Saturday (July 29) in Sunbury, Ohio. Unfortunately, I didn't see Brett's email until Wednesday so it missed last week's News and Notes. Oops!

Without further ado, here's the scoop on the show.

There were a total of 109 cars registered. Brett Gearhart's 1967 Chevrolet Nova SS received the Best of Show award.

Congrats to Brett and mea culpa for not seeing his email on Sunday.

Der Dutchman Cruise-In:

Attendance jumped back into the three hundred (303 to be exact) this past Thursday at the Der Dutchman Cruise-In in Plain City, Ohio.

The rocking chair and die-cast cars Wayne received as birthday gifts last week were on display in the barn.

Downtown Delaware First Friday Cruise-In:

Twenty-nine cars participated in the First Friday Cruise-In in downtown Delaware, Ohio on Friday evening.

The highlight of the cruise-in was a rare sighting of Dan Varner's 1991 Camaro Z/28 1LE with only 4800 miles on the odometer. In my opinion, it's one of the best if not THE best car in Dan's "Survivor" collection.

Richwood Bank Coffee and Cars Cruise-In:

The Delaware, Ohio branch of the Richwood Bank hosted its monthly Coffee and Cars Cruise-in on Saturday morning. There were 30-plus cars in attendance.

The volunteers working the coffee bar inside the bank offered a treat called a "Buckeye" to everyone who brought a car. I have no idea what was in the treat. The concoction definitely had peanut butter and chocolate in it. Whatever the ingredients, it tasted awfully darn good!

At the end of the cruise-in, the bank raffled off four door prizes. The top prize was a bucket of car care products along with a fifth of Henry McKenna's bourbon whiskey. The winner cannot only clean their vehicle but have a good time doing it.

Vettes, Rods, & Classics Charity Car Show:

The Capital City Corvette Club hosted its 21st Annual Vettes, Rods, & Classics car show on Saturday. The show is always held on the first Saturday in August unless rained out. The location is the Creekside district in Gahanna, Ohio, a wonderful venue for a car show.

All proceeds from the show go to benefit Nationwide Children's Hospital.

Live entertainment was once again provided by the band Reelin' in the Years.

The club presented more than 80 awards at the end of the show. The unique thing about Vettes, Rods, and Classics is awards are presented for both the Rods/Classics and the Corvettes. There was an assortment of "Specialty" awards and Best of Show winners for each category.

This year the show registered a total of 247 cars.

Here is the list of "Specialty" Award winners:

The Best of Show for the Rods & Classics went to Antoine Davis and his 2013 Harley Davidson motorcycle.

The 1963 split-window Chevy Corvette belonging to Melody Thomas took home the Best of Show honors for the Vettes.

Here's a sampling of cars that participated in the Vettes, Rods, & Classics Charity Car Show:

Vineyard East Car, Truck, and Bike Show:

The Crossroads Events team was in Pickerington, Ohio on Saturday hosting the Vineyard Columbus East Campus Car, Truck, and Bike Show.

Thirty-five awards were presented at the end of the show.

The Larry Bickers Daily Driver Award went to Bob Salters with a 2014 Chevy Camaro LS2.

The "Spotlight" car of the show was a 1981 Pontiac Trans Am belonging to David Grove.

Bill McCulloch and his 1937 International D-2 pickup took home the Best of Show award.

Commercial Point Karting Classic Car, Truck, Jeep & Bike Show:

The 6th Annual Commercial Point Karting Classic Car, Truck, Jeep, & Bike Show took place Saturday evening in downtown Commercial Point, Ohio.

Issues with insurance eliminated the Go Kart racing through the streets of Commercial Point this year. There was, however, a free concert from the band McGuffey Lane.

The show registered 126 vehicles. Awards were presented after the McGuffey Lane concert which ended around 9 PM.

Chad Herrick's 2018 Dodge Charger Daytona 392 received a "Premium Choice" award.

Dave and Jackie Hiles' 1962 Dodge D100 pickup received the Best Truck award. Kenny G's 2016 Dodge Challenger Hellcat received one of the three 2001 to Present awards.

The Best of Show award went to Ron Leibrock and his 1969 Restomod Camaro SS.

The Point on Main Bar & Grill Car Show:

Shaun "Big Dawg" Sanders and the C-Town Cruisers were at the Point on Main Street Bar & Grill on Sunday hosting its August show.

Mark Mitchell organized a get-together of members from the ssrFanatic.com forum for Sunday's show. In all, 19 members showed up with their Chevy SSR. Some traveled from as far as Tennessee and Pennsylvania to attend.

The threat of rain didn't deter 81 cars from registering. Awards were presented to the "Top 30" plus a Ladies Choice, Rat Rod/Mopo (most potential), and Best of Show.

Jeanne Whitling and her 2015 RHD Jeep Wrangler (aka Cookie Monster) received the Ladies Choice Award. Jeanne drove her Jeep all the way from Pennsylvania to participate in the show. The C-Town Cruisers seem to be getting quite the national attention.

The Best Rat Rod/Mopo award went to the 1974 Chevy Camaro Z/28 belonging to Blake Lipkey.

Eddie Smith's 1974 Plymouth Road Runner received the Best of Show honors.

Eldorado's Food & Spirits Car, Truck, & Bike Show:

Frank Russell and the Crossroads Events team literally traveled across town on Sunday to host the monthly car show at Eldorado's Food & Spirits located at the corner of Morse Road and High Street.

The Crossroads team presented 30 awards.

The Larry Bickers Daily Driver award went to Shannon Williams and his 1956 Buick Super all original.

The show's "Spotlight" car was the 2020 Ford Mustang GT belonging to Anthony Green.

Best of Show honors went to Sophie Patch and her 1929 Ford Model A. Sophie also received the Mayor's Choice award at the Vettes, Rods, & Classics Charity Car Show the day before.

Other Area Shows:

  • On Friday evening the Hosanna Lutheran Church in Pataskala, Ohio registered just under 100 cars for its annual car show. Jesse Bickell with a 1947 DeSoto received the Best of Show award.
  • The Rhythm & Rib Fest Cruise-In in downtown London, Ohio on Saturday evening had about 75 cars in attendance.

  • On Sunday, Dick "Hot Dog" Ryman was back at the Heart of Ohio Antique Center in Springfield, Ohio spinning the tunes and passing out wooden nickels at its monthly cruise-in. There were just under 60 cars in attendance.

That's all I have for this week. A big thanks to the following folks for sending photos and info about this past week's events:

  • Jeff Shankle

I hope everyone has a good week! I'll see you again next week with a new report.

This past weekend saw near-perfect car show weather on Friday and Saturday disappear into morning showers on Sunday which canceled three events.

Delaware First Friday:

The First Friday event in downtown Delaware, Ohio took place on Friday evening. Approximately 38 cars participated in the cruise-in part of the event.

It's my understanding that If you want to leave the cruise-in before 9 PM, you can request assistance from the police to move your vehicle from the designated parking area.

The Tri-County Career Center in Nelsonville, Ohio hosted its annual car show on Saturday. The event drew more the 80 cars.
