We had a beautiful weekend full of warm and sunny days in Central Ohio. There has been so much rain lately that many shows have been rescheduled or rained out. The Mid-Ohio Chapter of the Oldsmobile Club of America held its 32nd Annual Oldsmobile Car Show. I had a busy weekend, but I managed to stop by to check it out between my daughters’ soccer games.
Oldsmobile has a heritage reaching back to the early nineteen hundreds when cars were horseless carriages. I am always impressed to see the truly historic vehicles at shows. Milton and Charlene brought their 1919 Oldsmobile to the show. They restored it, but it still had the original glass.
The show is a great place to connect with friends in the Oldsmobile community. Mike brought his custom 1971 Cutlass Supreme to the show. It features an air intake system he fabricated and ghost stripes.
Thomas brought out his triple black 1968 Cutlass convertible. Nothing shines like a black car and this one demands attention.
I met Jeff and his wife Carole via the interwebs and in person at the show. They brought their 1972 Vista Cruiser down from Michigan. It is such a cool car with tons of originality. Nice suspension setup, with room for the entire family. A true cruiser.
The great thing about this show is that it brings out some of the rare and collectible Oldsmobiles that you only hear about. Oldsmobile legends like the W-30, Hurst/Olds, and drag cars are lined up on display.
