The ninth annual Plain City Classic Car Cruise-In on Aug. 6 will feature collector cars, trucks and motorcycles from around the Midwest.

The Cruise-In, which will run from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., will take visitors down memory lane, with a display of automobiles ranging from the 1920s to present day.

Julie Weaver, Uptown Plain City Organization's promotions committee chair, said the Classic Car Cruise-In has continued to grow from the 50 registered automobiles in its first year to last year's 251, which attracted an estimated crowd of 2,000 people.

"We get all kinds," Weaver said of the cars that show up and line Main Street in Uptown Plain City. "We get a number of them from the '30s, the hot rods, a lot of the classic muscle cars (and) lots of cars from the '50s, too."

"We did not fill up all the available space last year on the street," Weaver said. "We'd really like to have 300 or more (registered automobiles this year)."

According to Weaver, the award categories have been expanded for this year's event, but will continue to include dated classes:1939 and earlier; 1940s, '50s, '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s and 2000 to the present, and Best of Show. There will also be 10 motorcycle awards given out this year.

Weaver said she hopes to further incorporate motorcycles into the event each year.

"We didn't have motorcycle awards before last year," she said, explaining that the 2010 Classic Car Cruise-In had only one motorcycle award.

"We constantly had people mentioning we should do more with motorcycles," she said. "That they wanted to bring them to the show, too."

In addition to the car show, visitors will be able to enjoy music from two local talents: singer-songwriter Jorden Stock and the classic rock group, 4 Miles Out.

"There's plenty to do, even if you don't have a car," Weaver said. "You can come see a band, you can look at the cars (and) you can get something to eat."

Returning from last year are the 50/50 raffle and a prize raffle for items such as grilling accessories, gift certificates and gift baskets, Weaver said. The open silent auction also returns this year for a one-day pass to The Mid-Ohio School for the chance at a defensive driving or performance driving class at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.
