1948 Willys Overland Jeepster - Owner: Dennis Mowrey

It's Goodguys Week!

The Goodguys Summit Racing Nationals comes to town this weekend. It is the largest car event in Central Ohio, attracting car enthusiasts from all over the region. There will be impressive displays of classic, muscle cars, hot rods, and custom builds. Whether you participate with your car or as a spectator, it's worth the price of admission.

The excitement doesn't end when the day’s events wrap up at the Goodguys Summit Racing Nationals. Join fellow enthusiasts and keep the festivities going at the after-parties at the Crown Plaza North and Hilton Polaris Hotels, and Quaker Steak & Lube:

2ND UPDATE:

YouTuber, Automotive Adventures with Austin, has posted a new ride-along video he did today with a Goodguys official showing the changes to this year's show.

UPDATE:

Just wanted to make everyone aware that there is major construction and I mean MAJOR CONSTRUCTION going on at the Ohio Expo Center. A YouTuber by the name of Automotive Adventures With Austin posted a video yesterday of the construction going on at the Expo Center. If you're bringing a car to the Goodguys be prepared for a lot of concrete blocks, fencing, and dust. It could be a big mess if it rains this weekend!

NEWS AND NOTES

Champaign Cruisers Firecracker Car, Truck, & Bike Show:

Originally, there were two events in the area scheduled on July 4th. The show at the American Legion on South High Street was postponed because of the weather forecast. This left the 26th Annual Champaign Cruisers Firecracker Car, Truck, and Bike Show in Urbana, Ohio as the only event.

In 2023, 676 entries were recorded, but this year only 295 vehicles were registered due to the threat of afternoon rain. The awards ceremony was moved to 1 PM in an attempt to get the show over before the rain started.

Central Ohio cruisers Jeff Shankle, Chad Herrick, and Kenny G received Sponsor's Pick Awards.

Chad, a member of the Old Goats Car Club, said a real live goat showed up at his car. Now that's a little freaky.

Thanks to Jeff Shankle for sharing his photos from the show. Here are some of the 295 cars:

Roundtown Cruisers Summer Cruise Night:

The Roundtown Cruisers Car Club hosted its July Summer Cruise Night show in downtown Circleville, Ohio on Friday.

This month the show had a little over 70 cars in attendance. The trophy winners were Mike Ramey and his 1932 Ford Coupe, Jim Moore with a 1962 Plymouth Wagon, Dallas Behrens' 1952 Chevy Suburban, and Rhonda and Steven Taylor with their 1956 Ford Pickup.

Horsepower Farms Cars, Coffee, and Donuts:

Horsepower Farms collector car and recreational vehicle condominiums on Home Rd in Powell, Ohio, hosted a cars, coffee, and donuts meet-up on Saturday morning. There were somewhere between 75 and 100 cars in attendance.

Here are examples of a single-storage condominium, a single-storage with a loft, and a double-storage condominium with a loft.

Jim Gill, owner of Chesrown Chevrolet GMC, has quite the collection of cars in his storage condominium.

There seems to be enough demand for storage condominiums that plans are in the works to build more units. If you'd like more information on Horsepower Farms, check out its website.

Stockhands Horses for Healing Car Show:

Sponsored by the Delaware Knights Auto Club and Artomotive, the third annual Stockhands Horses for Healing car show took place on Saturday off Rt 315 in Delaware, County.

Founded in 2014, the Stockhands Horses for Healing is a non-profit organization that provides equine-assisted therapeutic services to children and adults living with mental, physical, and emotional challenges.

This year the show set an attendance record with 145 registered vehicles. There was no set registration fee. It was whatever you wanted to donate.

There were door prizes, a gift card raffle, a silent auction, and a 50/50 raffle all to help raise money. The winning half of the 50/50 hit $433. All of which was donated back by the winner. All told, the show raised over $6000 for the organization. The most ever.

There were trophies for the "Top 25" along with a motorcycle award, Kids Choice, and Best of Show.

The Motorcycle Award went to Melinda Hines with a Hondamatic 400A.

The Kids Choice was a 2024 Mustang Dark Horse. Ironically, the winner received a diecast Chevy Impala.

Here are 24 of the Top 25 winners:

The Best of Show Award went to the 1965 Ford Galaxie 500 belonging to Chris and Stacy Selvaggio. A beautiful car!

On Saturday the team was back at the Chubby Hawaiian Grill for the July show at the restaurant.

Lisa Gardner and her 2005 Mini Cooper received the Veteran Owned Vehicle Award.

This year's Bryan Lewis Memorial Award went to Dave Chase with a 1969 Chevy Camaro.

Final Thoughts: You couldn't ask for a better-organized show. The parking lot of the Upper Arlington Lutheran Church is huge with wide parking spaces. There were clean restroom facilities inside the Church. The awards presentation started and 3 PM and was finished before 3:30 PM. Hats off to Carz and Causez for a show well done.

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:

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.

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

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:
