'10 Mill Hollow Car Show, N Ohio

For the past several years, Iíve heard rumors of car show Mecca in my area of northern Ohio. This year I decided to go see it for myself. And the rumors were true. Just south of Vermilion Ohio, the Lorain County Metropark called Mill Hollow is transformed into the largest vintage car show in Ohio. The normal attendance is between 3,000 and 4,000 show cars. Attendance is guessed to be about 15,000 people.

Participants started lining up at about 4:30 a.m. The show runs 10-3. A 50ís concert is held afterwards. The show is restricted to vehicles 25 years and older.

The date for the show is normally the first Sunday in August.

So I thought I would throw out a feeler to gauge if their be any interest in setting up a vintage wagon wheel next year. Due to the nature of the setup, I anticipate asking for permission to come in Saturday and boondock overnight. Arrangements for Friday night camping could also be made nearby.

The variety at this show is incredible. Vehicles range from monster trucks, corvette clubs, imports, to duesenbergs. My buddy brought his fire truck! He parked it next to a Peterbuilt Semi camper conversion.

Anyways, Iím obviously not looking for commitment, but is there enough interest for me to contact the park to discuss the possibility?

as usual

As usual, Dan, you have a great idea! We have been to this show several years ago and thought that they should have some type of vintage trailer contingent. They had antique motorcycles when we were there too. So it only seems right that they need to add on to their vintage theme by adding some vintage trailers.
We don't belong to any vintage clubs yet, but this would be a fun thing to do. Our 1978 Argosy Minuet is an antique now.
Go for it and see if it is possible for next year! We would be interested!
