NEWS AND NOTES

I'm sad to report we lost another Central Ohio cruiser last month. David Hiles from Reynoldsburg, Ohio passed away on February 20. A member of the Old Goats Car Club, David drove a gold 1966 Pontiac GTO. He always displayed his GTO with a stuffed tiger on the roof or hood. Our condolences go out to his family. He will be missed.

1938 Dodge 2 Dr Sedan - Owner: Bill Blackburn

The 2023 Central Ohio car show season has officially ended as far as judged shows. It was just posted on Facebook that there will be a cruise-in at Earthworks Cafe and Lounge in Newark, Ohio on November, 18th. If you're dying for one more car event before you put your car away, here you have it.

Here are the News and Notes from the final five Central Ohio car shows of 2023.

Creative Automotive/Advanced Auto Parts Car Show:

Often referred to as the "Wheelbarrow Fire Pit" car show, Creative Automotive Auto Sales and the Advance Auto Parts Store in Marysville, Ohio hosted its final show of the year on November 3rd.

There were 26 cars in attendance and $145 was raised for the Marysville Food Pantry.

Here are the six "Favorite" car picks for this month:

In addition to the car awards, Jeff Shankle presented awards for Cruiser and Co-Cruiser of the Year.

Rex Dillion, Tim Inscho, and I received Co-Cruiser of the Year awards. The three of us only missed one show. I was in Florida for the April show so I had a good excuse.

The Cruiser of the Year award went to Jimmy Carmean and Rick Jones. They both attended all eight Creative Automotive/Advanced Auto Parts shows this year. Rick has been Cruiser of the Year four out of the last five years.

Miller's Swap Meet and Car Show:

The 16th Annual Miller's Fall Swap Meet and Car Show took place on Saturday, November 4th at the Ross County Fairgrounds in Chillicothe, Ohio.

With plenty of sunshine and temperatures in the 60s, the car show registered 171 vehicles.

I didn't go far into the swap meet area but from what I was told by those that did it was huge.

The car show presented a total of 40 award plaques -- "Top 20" for cars '87 and older and "Top 20" for cars '88 and newer. In addition to the plaques, there were 13 "Special" trophies and two Best of Shows -- one for '87 and older and one for '88 and newer.

The club participation award went to the Street Kingz Car Club.

Here are the "Special" trophy winners:

The Best of Show winners:

  • '88 and Newer - Custom 1995 Chevy Camaro - Owner: Bob Kirst

  • '87 and Older - 1967 Chevy Nova SS - Owner: Charlie Seymour

Notice that Charlie is standing with two trophies. The one with "Best of Show" at the top will stay with the show promoter. Each year the cars and owner names that received Best of Show will be added to the base of the trophy.

Final Thoughts: This was my first Miller's Swap Meet and Car Show. It was worth the hour's drive from Columbus. I liked splitting the awards into older and newer cars. In my opinion, it gets more people to participate in the show and adds a larger variety of cars. No one can argue that is a bad thing.

2013 Ford Mustang - Owner: Brandon Taylor

The Central Ohio car show season "officially" (by my standards anyway) begins this weekend. Now get those vehicles out of storage, if you haven't already, and let's start having fun in 2023!
