NEWS AND NOTES

I'm sad to report we lost another Central Ohio cruiser last week with the unexpected passing of Thad Lee Roberts. Thad was 59 years old.

Many of you will recognize Thad from his cars. He most often drove his 1973 Chevy Camaro RS/Z28 to shows. He also showed a 1970 Dodge Dart Swinger and a 1972 Chevy Nova.

Our condolences go out to his family. Here is his obituary with information regarding visitation and funeral service.

Der Dutchman Cruise-In:

It was another big evening at the restaurant's weekly cruise-in. Attendance this past Thursday reached 280 cars.

This week's unique/unusual car is the 1940 Ford pickup belonging to Jack Leffel. I think you'll understand from the photos why the pickup is so unique.

If there was a Best of Show award, in my opinion, it would go to this 1960 Chevy Impala.

A Ford Bronco Raptor Edition made an appearance on Thursday. I have to admit it was a damn cool SUV.

The Heart of Grove City Car, Truck, & Bike Show:

Shaun "Big Dawg" Sanders and the C-Town Cruisers were in Grove City, Ohio on Saturday for the first of three Heart of Grove City Car, Truck, & Bike Shows this season.

The show registered 70 cars.

Live music was provided by the 3C Highway Band during the first half of the show.

Awards were presented to the Top 35 cars and trucks along with awards for MOPO (Most Potential)/Rat Rod, Best Bike, Best Truck, and Best of Show.

The MOPO/Rat Rod award went to Brian Black and his 1976 "Chebby" G10 Van.

The Best Bike award would have gone to this 2024 Yamaha MT-07 but the owner left before the end of the show.

Doug Glassburn's 1972 Chevy C-10 Stepside pickup received the Best Truck Award.

The Best of Show honors went to Jim Loftus with a 1957 Chevy Bel Air.

Crossroads Car, Truck, & Bike Show at Earthworks Cafe at Newark Station:

Frank Russell and his Crossroads Events team hosted their first-ever car show at Earthworks Cafe at Newark Station in Newark, Ohio on Saturday.

The team presented 34 awards at the end of the show.

The Veteran Owned Award went to Dave Byers and his 1989 Chevy Corvette.

For the second week in a row, David Anderson took home Best of Show honors with his 1949 supercharged Ford Tudor convertible.

Next up for the Crossroads Events Team is a show at the Chubby Hawaiian in Baltimore, Ohio on Saturday, June 1st.

Feast of the Flowering Moon Car Show:

Downtown Chillicothe, Ohio was the site of the Feast of the Flowering Moon Car Show on Saturday.

The show presented awards to the Top 25 plus eight "Special Category" awards including "Feast Choice" aka Best of Show.

Attendance totaled 130 cars with 118 of them registered.

Our good friend, Dale Pearce, took home the Feast Choice Award along with a Top 25 for his 1950 Chevy 3100 pickup.

The Scioto Post did a nice write-up on Dale and his truck. You can read the article posted on its website here.
