2013: Old Cars in Columbus

Pinterest AutomotiveOld cars in Columbus July 2013

It’s that weekend.  The old cars will be at the Ohio Expo Center this weekend… and driving all over town.  I have NOT seen any of the classic cars, hot rods, antiques yet.    Maybe they’re starting to hit the streets and I have not been paying attention.  Goodguys comes to town the weekend after the 4th of July, every year.

You can not help but appreciate the cars when you see them on the street.

Goodguys 16th PPG Nationals is July 12 to 14, 2013 at the Ohio Expo Center.

Old cars

Classic cars to muscle cars, autocross, drag racing, there’s a bunch of things to do at the event at the Ohio Expo Center this weekend.

Pinteresting Cars  – The gorgeous turquoise car on my ‘Automotive’ board on Pinterest is one of Don O’Brien’s photos on Flickr.  Mr. O’Brien, a professional photographer  grew up in the Worthington area .  Don O’Brien was interested in cars at an early age.  He has great photos of cars from the 1940s and 1950s. Maybe a few from the late 1930s too.  In ‘ Old Cars on High St. Worthington ‘the photo in a ColumbusBestBlog.com  post about the old cars coming to Columbus for the 2011 weekend is one of his photos. Many of the vehicle images on my  “Automotive” board are Don O’Brien’s photos (he licenses some of his photos with a Creative Commons license which allows them to be shared with attribution.)  Don O’Brien visits car shows around the country so his Flickr photostream is a great place to look at photos of great looking old cars.     Dok1 on Flickr  He has a ’2013 Car Show and Cruise-in’  set on Flickr!

Drive through

A cruise…  drive through  many of the motel parking lots on the north side of Columbus is  a car show this weekend.  Perhaps that is true of all parts of town.  We’ve run into many of the cars on Sinclair Road and the Crosswoods area in restaurant parking lots and motel parking lots.  People line the streets in the Crosswoods area on lawn chairs as if there’s a parade… and there is a parade as the car’s cruise around.

Not the only thing in town

Old cars not the only thing to do this weekend in Columbus.  There’s an art festival in Westerville, old things on the Worthington Green, Ohio Food & Wine Festival at the North Market and more.  One of the best places to find information on things to do in Columbus is the Experience Columbus event calendar.
