GREENVILLE — As the tops roll down, the hoods go up, and “the classics” come cruising in, Darke County residents – and especially classic car enthusiasts – know that summer’s good times and family fun are just around the corner.
Over 140 classic cars were on display for event goers at the Legendary Rolling 50s Classic Car Show, which happened Saturday evening, May 8, at the Greenville Kroger’s, located on Wagner Avenue.
“We are so thankful for the great weather and turnout,” said Dave Niley, owner of Rolling 50s Classics, Inc. which sponsored the event. “We would also like to thank Kroger’s for allowing us to be out here.”
Complete with classic 50s and 60s music provided by Kroozin’ with DJ Fast Eddie, car enthusiasts from across Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky came together to celebrate their love of classic cars, beautiful restorations, and imaginative presentations. Cars were judged in many categories, and awards were also given for oldest and youngest driver.
The next Rolling 50s Classics event will take place Saturday, June 20, 2021, at 39th Annual Father’s Day Rolling 50s Car Show & Swap Meet, located on the Darke County Fairgrounds in Greenville. Gates will open at 8:30 a.m., with registration beginning at 10 a.m. Cars of all classes are invited to show. General Admission is $2.
