Classic Cars Coming out This Weekend!

Model A car at Visit Lorain County’s
Visitor’s Center 

Restored and ready to ride! Cars that are a blast from the past are all over Lorain County this weekend.

Our very own Visitor’s Center on Leavitt Road was the first stop for the Flying Quail Chapter of the Penn-Ohio Model A Club. They picked up some great info and on Saturday plan to stop by local restaurants and historical sites including the Spirit of 76 Museum in Wellington, the Oberlin Heritage Center and Quick and Delicious Restaurant in Oberlin. You can also catch them in Amherst Sunday when they visit the Sandstone Village; so keep your eyes peeled for this fantastic vintage convoy.

Of course one of the most popular car shows around is the Cruisin’ Car Show at Mill Hollow, Vermilion River Reservation. Thousands of cars will motor into the park this Sunday Aug 12th starting at 10am! All the excitement is fee free for both spectators and participants.

If you are planning on bringing a car to show remember, it needs to be at least 25 years old. Food vendors, raffles and music by a live DJ will come together to make this 14th edition of the show an all out festival. Then, at 6:30, enjoy your favorite tunes from the 50s and 60s played by Final Approach.
