The Buckeye Lake Historical Society Car Show was a total success this year even though the day started off with rain.  By noon there were 78 cars surrounding the grassy knoll at the Buckeye Lake State Park.  There were over 20 awards given out with fantastic door prizes.   Several car enthusiasts mentioned that this is one of their favorite shows as it is the first one of the season and people love coming out to the Lake.


Special thanks to all the Volunteers that helped to make the show a success.  Sonny Roelle, Al Alder, Jim Layton, Dave Lawrence, Kaye Hartman, Kitty Owlsliski, Mike Cassidy, Philip Vaughn and Donna Braig.


Our thanks goes out to all the sponsors but especially to Jim Matheny, Kar Shoz & A-1 Auto parts in Buckeye Lake.  Without their assistance it would not be possible.
