There's a little more local activity this week. For those of you who can't wait until the weekend to get your car show fix, good news, you're going to start seeing events on weekdays from now until October.

NEWS AND NOTES:

I didn't attend the pre-cruise-in dinner at Der Dutchman in Plain City on Thursday, but I heard attendance was very good.

Shannon Rusell's car was parked under the canopy in front of the restaurant to honor him. Shannon recently passed away. He was a regular attendee of the cruise-in from the very beginning. I'm sure many of you will recognize his car. He will be missed.

The Car and Bike Show at Tony's Bar and Grille Friday evening in London, Ohio was the only judged show in the area this past weekend. The show registered more than 50 cars. This 1959 Corvette took Best of Show honors.

A bunch of events were announced last week and added to the Save the Dates for 2021 page. Check out the page for the most comprehensive list of upcoming car events in Central Ohio.

I had what you would call a very "Exotic" weekend. Not the kind with dancers, but the kind with cars. If you're into automobiles costing well north of $100,000, then you'll enjoy this weekend report.

Columbus Cars and Coffee at Esoteric

Saturday morning I attended the "Milligan" Columbus Cars and Coffee meet held at the Esoteric Fine Auto Finishing shop in New Albany, Ohio.

By my "unofficial" count, close to 100 automobiles showed up for this second meet of the season.

There was a nice mix of foreign exotics and modern American muscle.

On Saturday morning, the Toy Barn dealership in Dublin, Ohio held its first ever car show.

The dealership pre-registered 144 vehicle.  The early morning wet roads kept a few of those pre-registered cars away, however, the show still managed to attract well over 100 cars by my estimation.

Jake Ballard, former Ohio State and New York Giants, tight-end was on hand  along with 97.1 The Fan Sports Radio.

Live entertainment was provided throughout the morning by Evan Blankenship.
