NEWS AND NOTES

This week's report covers a wide area of shows from Coshocton to Urbana, Ohio.

Der Dutchman Cruise-In:

The restaurant's weekly cruise-in had the largest attendance so far this season with 413 cars.

This week's cruise-in was a memorial to loved ones who are no longer here. A table was set up by the food/registration shack so that people could display memories of their friends, family members, or whoever they wanted to remember.

Wayne Nisly who manages the cruise-in announced that milkshakes have been added to the menu.

This week's unique/unusual vehicle award goes to Charlie O'Neill and Tom Thompson for their Burgundy Bandit. The entire place paused for a moment when they fired it up to take it off the trailer.

Empty Pockets Cruisers Dave & Busters Car & Bike Show:

The last time the Empty Pockets Cruisers Car Club hosted a car show at Dave & Buster's Restaurant in Hilliard, Ohio was June 13, 2021. After a two-year hiatus and a completely remodeled Dave & Buster's, the club returned on Saturday to host another car show at the restaurant.

This year the club registered 109 cars. Jim McGruder was again the DJ and MC for the show.

The club presented a total of 50 award plaques. There were 45 "Favorite" awards plus five "Specialty" awards. The "Specialty" awards included Favorite Motorcycle, DJ's Choice, Dave & Buster's Choice, Sponsors Choice, and Empty Pockets Cruisers Choice, a.k.a Best of Show.

The Favorite Motorcycle went to William Russell with a 2013 Harley Davidson Street Glide.

The 25th Anniversary 1992 Chevy Camaro RS belonging to Mark Schlueb received Dave & Buster's Choice Award.

Jim McGruder's DJ's Choice went to Christopher Gibbs with a 2016 Dodge Challenger Shaker 392.

Rod Scott and his 1958 Dodge D-100 Sweptside pickup received the Sponsors Choice.

The Empty Pockets Cruisers Choice (a.k.a Best of Show) was Robert Rutowkski's 1971 Pontiac GTO.

Immaculate Conception Parish Car Show:

The Immaculate Conception Parish in Columbus, Ohio held its 6th annual Car Show on Saturday.

The show registered 38 cars. There was a total of nine awards, Five trophies for People's Choice and four "Show Favorite". The People's Choice awards included Best Paint, Best Engine, Best Interior, Best Overall and "Cutest".

Best Interior went to John Hughes with a 1966 Volkswagon.

Jack Leffel's 1940 Ford pickup received the Best Engine Award. You may remember Jack's pickup from the May 28 to June 2, 2024 News and Notes where it was picked as the Unique/Unusual vehicle at the Der Dutchman Cruise-In.

The 1966 Corvette belonging to Fred Davis was voted Best Paint.

Dave Bratton's 1937 Wild Rod Ford was voted "Best Overall", a.k.a Best of Show.

Here are more cars from the show:

Cruise-In • Brews 2024:

The Pickerington Lions Clubs and Combustion Brewery & Taproom with the help of Big Dawg and the C-Town Cruisers hosted the 2024 Cruise-In • Brews Car Show on Saturday in Pickerington, Ohio.

There were 100 cars in attendance. Best of Show went to Doug Porter and his 1966 Chevy Nova.

Corvettes at Roscoe Village:

I don't normally list or cover shows east of Newark, Ohio. But I make an exception for the All-Corvette Show at Roscoe Village in Coshocton, Ohio. As you'll see, there's plenty of interest in this event from Central Ohio cruisers to include it on the list each year.

The show is put on by the Classic Glass Corvette Club. The historical Roscoe Village makes a very unique venue for a car show.

This year the club registered 187 Corvettes. Awards were presented for first, second, and third place for each generation of Corvette except for the 8th generation. That generation had a 4th place award. There were also "Specialty" Awards and a Best of Show.

Here are the Central Ohio cruisers that won awards:

Quentin Sayers received the 2nd Place Award in the C3 Category for his 1969 Corvette.

2nd Place in the C5 Category also went to Quentin Sayer for his 2000 Corvette driven by Miss M.

Jim McGruder's 2020 Corvette Stingray received 4th Place in the C8 Category.

3rd Place in the C8 Category went to Jeff Irwin's 2024 Corvette Z06.

Steve Kidwell and Nancy received the Classic Glass Corvette Club Choice for their 1954 Corvette.

The Street Elite Corvette Club received the Club Participation Award.

David Hahn and his 1954 Corvette took home The Best of Show honors.

Overall, it was a well-organized show at a unique venue. My only complaint which is common to most downtown shows is not being able to hear the PA announcements if you happen to be parked at the far ends of the street. I missed the first part of the award ceremony for that very reason.

Here are more Corvettes from the show:

NEWS AND NOTES

With better-than-expected weather this past weekend and lots of events on the schedule, this week's News and Notes is a big one!

Der Dutchman Cruise-In:

Perfect weather on Thursday evening brought out 283 cars to the Der Dutchman Cruise-In in Plain City, Ohio.

When the weather is nice, you can count on something unique or unusual to show up at the cruise-in. This week it was a street-legal NASCAR race car once driven by Jeremy Mayfield. The car garnered a lot of attention when it showed up.

Columbus Cars and Coffee at Esoteric Fine Auto Finishing:

Postponing Cars and Coffee at Esoteric for two weeks because of the weather turned out to be a good decision. With little to no rain in the forecast, a packed house of cars and spectators turned out for the Saturday morning Cars and Coffee.

There was the usual array of gorgeous exotics but also a nice mix of Classic American Muscle cars.

Two cars caught my attention during the morning. The first was a black Porsche GT3 RS with gold wheels, yellow calipers, and yellow stitching on the interior. The car just looked like it would be wicked fast around a track.

The second car was a restored 1963 split-window Corvette. The chassis was custom-made by Coffman Corvette out of Mansfield, Ohio. The powertrain was GM's small block LS3 engine. The Corvette was certainly Best of Show quality.

Esoteric Fine Auto Finishing will host another Columbus Cars and Coffee on September 14. If the weather is good, it's worth the drive to New Albany.

Cruisin' with the King:

The Mid Ohio Cruisers Car Club held its May show at the Burger King on Rt. 31 in Marysville, Ohio.

The show registered 64 cars but had a total of 80 cars in attendance Saturday evening.

Each month the Club picks its "Favorite" 15 cars to receive a unique award plaque from those who registered. And by the way, registration is always free.

Here are this month's "Favorite" picks:

NEWS AND NOTES

Empty Pockets Cruisers Trunk or Treat:

The Empty Pockets Cruisers hosted its annual trunk or treat car show on Saturday at the Hilliard, Ohio Presbyterian Church.

The show registered 90 cars. This is down a little from previous years thanks to the weather and a noon kickoff of the Ohio State vs Penn State football game.

A tire popped mid-way through the show which got everyone's attention for several minutes.

It was reported that two Jeff Tolleys were seen roaming around the show.

Will the Real Jeff Tolley Come on Down?

The Empty Pockets Cruisers presented 50 award plaques at the end of the show. Five were for best costume. The car awards included "Favorite 40" along with four "Specialty" car awards and a Best of Show.

Because of rain moving into the area, the awards were presented a little early. The costume winners were selected prior to the awards presentation.

Here are the winners of the "Specialty" car awards:

The Best of Show award went to Edgar Hernandez's 1961 Chevy Apache.

Car-Toberfest:

The Lancaster Car Scene hosted its second annual Car-Toberfest at Outerbelt Brewing in Carroll, Ohio on Sunday.

The show had 157 cars in attendance beating last year's attendance of 142.

Awards were presented to the Top 100 along with awards for Best Jeep, Best Muscle, Best Truck, Veteran Choice, Best Bike, and Best of Show.

For the second year in a row, Bob Kraft and his 1955 Chevy 210 took home the Best of Show award.

I had family from out of town in for the Ohio State football game so I wasn't able to attend the show. However, I did receive lots of photos of the beautiful vehicles that were in attendance. Here's a slideshow from all those photos.

Other Area Shows:

  • The Mid Ohio Cruisers Car Club out of Marysville, Ohio held its final car show of the season on Saturday evening. There were 28 cars in attendance at the Burger King on State Route 31.

  • Dale Pearce and his 1950 Chevy 3100 pickup received Best of Show honors on Sunday at a benefit car show in Hillsboro, Ohio for Max Sprague. Max is one of the primary moderators of the Ohio Car Shows and Cruise-ins Facebook group.

  • Chad Herrick picked up his second Best Halloween Decoration award on Saturday at the Jax Wax Street Madness Halloween Edition. The first one of the day came at the Empty Pockets Trunk or Treat show. Chad estimated there were between 500-700 people at Jax Wax Street Madness Saturday evening.
  • Tim Davidheiser's 1948 International Harvester KB-1 won Best of Show at The Masonic Lodge 475/VFW Post 3761 in Baltimore, Ohio on Sunday.

A big thanks to the following people for sending photos and info for this week's News and Notes:

  • Dale Pearce
  • Jeff Shankle
  • Chad Herrick
  • Bryan Mauger

I hope everyone has a good week! Stay safe. Next Monday will have the schedule for the entire month of November and a News and Notes report from the last weekend of October. We're down to the last three weeks of outdoor car events. Cross your fingers that the weather cooperates.

Der Dutchman Cruise-In:

Light sprinkles kept attendance down on Thursday. The total number of cars reached 120 cars by the end of the cruise-in. A lot of those cars came after 6 PM when the threat of rain subsided. Six of those cars were first-timers.

Corvette Gathering:

The Alliance of Ohio Corvette Clubs held its 18th Annual Corvette Gathering in downtown Lancaster, Ohio on Sunday.

The event is one giant cruise-in for Corvettes. Everyone received a commemorative plaque and door prize ticket with their $15 registration fee.

There was also a silent auction and hourly 50/50 raffles. Vendors of parts, accessories, and services were also present.

With the weather on Sunday just about ideal, the Gathering registered 420 Corvettes.

Here's a little slide show from the Corvette Gathering. It was almost as fun checking out the vanity license plates as it is seeing all the Corvettes.

The Point on Main Street Patriot Day Car Show:

Shaun "Big Dawg" Sanders and the C-Town Cruises were once again at The Point on Main Street hosting their monthly show at the Sports Bar and Grill in Columbus, Ohio. This month the show was in honor of Patriot Day recognizing those who had lost their lives on 9/11.

Every car that wanted to be judged had to drive through a designated judging area where seven judges looked over each car. I don't know about you, but I like the idea of a judging area. No one can complain that the judges didn't look at your car.

Our good friend, Arch Mayer, and his Saleen Mustang received a Top Three pick and went home with a nice three-foot trophy.

NEWS AND NOTES

Der Dutchman Cruise-In:

Last weekend was the annual London Cobra Show held between London and Dublin, Ohio. About 40 of the Cobras in for the show attended the Der Dutchman Cruise-In on Thursday. Total attendance reached 245 cars.

Remembering the Classics at Verena at Hilliard:

The Verena Senior Living Community in Hilliard, Ohio hosted a Remembering the Classics event on Thursday evening.

The theme of the event was a celebration of the 50s, 60s, and 70s. A small "classic" car show and Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, and Marilyn Monroe musical tribute impersonators were part of the celebration.

The residents of Verena were given the opportunity to vote for their favorite car. Trophies were presented to the three cars with the most votes.

Jeff Tolley's 1959 Chevy Biscayne received the third-place trophy. Tom Obert's 1964 1/2 Ford Mustang finished in second place.

Dale Pearce and his 1950 Chevy 3100 pickup received the most votes. The walker displayed right next to his truck gave Dale a huge advantage over the other cars. 😎

Everyone who participated in the car show was treated to a prime rib or chicken dinner compliments of the Verena.

London Strawberry Festival Car & Motorcycle Show:

Downtown London, Ohio was the scene of the annual Strawberry Festival Car & Motorcycle Show on Friday Evening.

The show registered about 40 cars.

One of my pet peeves is window cards with just a number to identify the car. Spectators and car show reporters like me find it beneficial to know the owner, year, make, and model of the vehicle. Especially when it comes to time to present awards.

Here's the Best of Show winner.

PTFD's Fish Fry & Friday Cruise-In:

It was one owner night at the Prairie Township Fire Department Fish Fry and Cruise-In on Friday evening in Columbus, Ohio.

The show registered 50 cars. There were 50 awards including the Fire Chief's Choice and Best of Show.

The Fire Chief's Choice Award went to Bud Norris and his all-original, one-owner 1965 Ford Mustang

Best of Show went to the one-owner 1967 Chevy Chevelle SS of Russ Annis.

Earth Angel Foundation Super Cruise-In:

The Earth Angel Foundation held its 36th annual Super Cruise-In at the Fairfield County Fairgrounds in Lancaster, Ohio on Saturday.

The event registered over 225 cars. There were a total of 84 awards (80 + four special) presented at the end of the show.

The "Special" awards went to Bob Randolph with his 1970 Dodge Challenger (Kids' Choice). John Nuckles' 1940 Ford Woody received one of the two Goodguys awards. The other went to a T-Bucket from Indiana. Best of Show honors named after the late president of the Foundation, Neil Redd, went to the 1969 Plymouth Road Runner Hemi of Jim Bickel.

Here are some of the cars and scenes from this year's Super Cruise-In:

Pinecrest Car Show, Cruise-In:

On Saturday, the Reformation Lutheran Church in Columbus, Ohio was the site of the 3rd Annual Pinecrest Car Show, Cruise-In. The show was sponsored by the Pinecrest Civic Association and the C-Town Cruisers.

The awards included "Top 30", Pastor's Choice (aka Best of Show), and Club Participation.

Congratulations to The Old Goats Car Club for its third club participation award this season.

The Pastor's Choice or Best of Show went to Bill and Susie Albert and their 1963 Chevy Impala 409.

American Legion Canteen Post 144 Car Show:

Big Dawg and the C-Town Cruisers hosted their first of four car shows this season at the American Legion Canteen Post 144 on South High Street in Columbus, Ohio on Sunday.

Unfortunately, some rain showers passing through the area just about the time registration opened kept some cars home in the garage. The show registered 33 cars.

Best of Show honors went to Steve Shaeffer with a 1965 Oldsmobile Cutlass convertible.

The next show the C-Town Cruisers will host at the American Legion Post on South High Street will be the Labor Day Car Show on September 4th.

Other Area Shows:

  • The Buckeye Region Plymouth Owners Club hosted its 20th Annual All Mopar Car Show at the Plaza Inn Family Restaurant in Mount Victory, Ohio Saturday morning. Thirty-four cars turned out for the event. In lieu of trophies, everyone who registered a vehicle was treated to a free buffet luncheon at the restaurant.
  • Walmart, Empty Pockets, and Nationwide Children's Hospital hosted a car show on Saturday afternoon at the Westpointe Plaza Walmart. Sponsored by Walmart and Nationwide Children's Hospital with help from the Empty Pockets Car Club, the show registered around 50 cars. All proceeds went to the Children's Miracle Network. Awards were presented to the "Top 40" Cars along with three "Special Awards". Here are the Special Award winners:

  • The Marysville Mustang Club hosted its Summer Event Saturday at C&N Motor Cars in Marysville, Ohio. About 75 cars attended the afternoon car meet.
  • Anthony Musick's 2017 Dodge Challenger finished in 1st Place for 2001 to 2023 Modern Cars at the Permco Grand Prix at Mid Ohio Sports Car Course.

I especially want to thank everyone who contributed to this week's report. This includes Dave Bratton, Jeff Shankle, Anthony Musick, Dale Pearce, Arch Mayer, Russ Annis, Phil Monroe, and Frank Sanborn.

My wife had a bad fall at Star Lanes at Polaris Friday afternoon and broke her left shoulder. I'll be playing Nursemaid for a while.

I hope everyone has a great week.
