Cruisin': Henderson Car Show
In May 22 Issue
Russell County News
By Ron Cowell, Columnist

In spite of cool temperatures and off and on rain The Ohio Valley Cruisers Car Club held their 24th annual car show this last weekend in Henderson Kentucky.

It all got under way last Saturday night on Main Street with the traditional parade of Classic Cars to the Block Party site. The cars were lead onto Main Street with the usual police escort with sirens blowing and lights flashing.

Saturday night the club had several blocks of Main Street blocked off with some of the nicest cars you have ever seen. 4 awards were handed out Saturday night. There was the Club Choice for Car and Truck and the Peoples choice for the same.

Three car guys from Russell County attended the show this year. Jim “Doc” Monin was there in his 1969 Olds 442. Mike and Phyllis Taylor took their 1957 Chevy BelAir. I followed up with my 1960 Chevy Biscayne.

When we arrived Saturday night all three of us were working on the cars shinning them up along with everyone else, getting them ready for the big show that was going to take place on Sunday. In between times folks were renewing friendships that had been made over the years. I have been fortunate enough to attend the show for the last 14 years or so.

At the end of the block party on Saturday night, the weather had held off and the street was filled with Oldies Music, Classic Cars and a whole lot of fellowship. Some of the people that attend this show only see each other once a year at this event.

They come from Ohio, Tennessee, Indiana, Michigan and Kentucky for the week end. At the end of the night all the cars were shinning under the lights and looking good.

After we got back to the Motel on Saturday night, the skies opened up and down came the rain. We woke up Sunday morning to a thunder storm and wondered how the show would go?

 We packed the cars and headed off to downtown Henderson. Usually there are close to 300 cars, trucks and motorcycles at the event but the day ended with about 125 vehicles.

All three of us from Russell County walked away with a trophy. Myself along with Doc Monin finished in the Top 50 with a very nice trophy. Mike and Phyllis Taylor walked away with the top award for best paint. In spite of the weather it turned out to be a wonderful week end.
