The pavement practically sizzled on Aug. 28, but the hot and humid conditions didn’t keep hot rods and other eye-catching vehicles from lining the streets for Plain City’s Classic Car Cruise-in.

Marty Murrish (left) and April Milstead of West Jefferson check out Dave Lamb’s pink 1970 Dodge Challenger. Lamb, a Marysville resident, said he has owned the car for 32 years and has redone it twice in that time. Murrish said friends of his had cars in the show and that his favorite models are Mustangs and Camaros. Milstead said her heart belongs to Volkswagens.
Friends Bennett Schellhaas (left) of Galloway and Al Perry (right) of London parked their vintage pickups side-by-side. Shellhaas acquired his 1952 Ford F1 three years ago. He said he had always wanted a flathead V8. The truck came with the paint job already done, but it needed TLC to make the horns, windshield wipers and some other mechanicals operational. Perry has had his 1951 Willy’s pickup for eight years. The resto-mod sits on a 1968 Ford Bronco frame and features a 302 V8 engine with a C4 automatic transmission. Perry said he has participated in the Plain City car show a couple of times. For Schellhaas, this year was his first at the show.
A variety of makes, models and vintages made for interesting viewing.
Cars and trucks lined Chillicothe and Main streets.
