Not much on the schedule for this second weekend of April. Next weekend will be a different story. Columbus Cars and Coffee, Auto Smarts Cruise and Ride, Mid Ohio Cruisers and the C-Town Cruisers just to name a few all have their first events of season scheduled for next weekend.

I couldn’t find anything for Sunday. If you know of event in Central Ohio on Sunday, please pass it my way.

UPDATE: The Franklin County Food Fair and cruise-in is both Saturday and Sunday. I’ve updated the listings.

News and Notes:

The Rod Knockers Car Club of Marion, Ohio held their first show of the season Saturday evening at Rural King. Because of Covid-19, the last show hosted by the club prior to Saturday was October of 2019. More the 80 cars turned out for this first show following the 17 month hiatus.

Each month this season, the club will feature a car from a past television show. April’s featured car was the 1982 Firebird Trans Am known as K.I.T.T. from the television show Knight Rider. Unfortunately, David Hasselhoff was unable to make an appearance at Saturday’s show due to a prior commitment. 😁

On a more serious note, this 1937 Ford pickup received the Club’s Choice Award for April.

A much lighter schedule this week as the 2020 season starts to wind down.

Looking forward, next Saturday (October 17) has 10 events so far on the schedule. After that, things start to taper off dramatically as the season comes to a close.

News and Notes:

I received an email this week from a reader that there will be a Powell Cruise-In and Pig Out this year. It won't be a downtown show as in past years. It will be held in the empty field just west of Auto Assets. The show is scheduled for Sunday, October 25, and is limited to 100 vehicles so you must register ahead of time. This link will take you to the registration form.

Colo's Classic Car Show on Saturday at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium was 100 short of my prediction of 1000 registered cars. Despite missing the thousand mark, it still ends up being the largest car event in central Ohio this year.

Saturday's show also marked the 600th event for the Pepsi Auto Smarts Radio Cruise and Ride series. Congratulations to Boots and his team for achieving this big milestone!

The Hot Rods and Handlebars show Saturday evening at AD Farrows in Sunbury, Ohio got some glowing reviews. Someone posted on Facebook that it was one of the best shows they had been to all year.

A few trunk or treat events popped up this week. Check out the Save the Dates for 2020 page for a list of shows and cruise-ins through the end of the year.
