2011 Fall Exotic Hocking Hills Cruise - Wow another great year
By far, the 2011 Fall Exotic Cruise was the best yet. Beautiful 66 degree weather, a nice eclectic mix of exotics of all ages and makes, amazing roads and scenery, and a rare gathering of enthusiasts and friends.
I think the 2011 driving route was the best in 6 years (if I do say so myself). I'm not sure if I'll be able to top in next year - but it will be fun trying! Spring can't come soon enough. Here are some photos
Photos of the Exotic Spring Cruise 2011
Thanks to everyone who participated in our second annual Spring Exotic/Performance Cruise. Thanks to Scott Klablunde for letting us use his farm for our catered lunch. I look forward to more new and amazing automobiles for our Fall cruise. VIEW PHOTOS OF OUR 2011 EXOTIC CRUISE HERE
Autumn Hocking Hills Exotic/Performance Car Cruise 2010
The 2010 Autumn Exotic/Performance Car Cruise was one of our best cruises to date. We had nearly 40 amazing automobiles of all breeds - new and vintage Lamborghinis, Ferraris, Porsches, Lotus, Vipers, NSX, and the surprise appearance of Ken's brand new SLS Gullwing - stunning!
Wide open country roads, amazing fall colors, a warm fall day, rural barns, covered bridges, "spirited" driving, great friends, and the roar of thousands of horses that could be heard from more than a mile away...it doesn't get much better. Va bene!
I thank everyone who participated in the cruise. I look forward to an outstanding 2011 automotive season. It is always exciting to share an enjoyable day with fellow car enthusiasts with a common passion for driving cars the way they were meant to be driven.
Special thanks to the Brass Ring Golf Club for catering to our large event.

2010 Exotic/Performance Spring Car Cruise
We had another outstanding Car Cruise starting in Grandville, through the back country roads of Licking County, through Utica Ohio, and ending up at Papa Boo's on Buckeye Lake.
We had more than 30 beautiful automobiles participate this year. Murcielagos, Gallardos, Diablos, beautiful Ferraris of every year, rare NSXs and Lotus, and a hot M6 and Porsche 911..
One of the biggest hits of the day was the arrival of Casey's Bat Mobile (based on a Corvette platform) - with VERY LOUD working machine guns. I laughed and grimaced every time he shot them for the crowd.VIEW SOME PHOTOS
2009 October Exotic/Performance Car Cruise
Thanks to everyone who attended the 2009 Fall Exotic and Performance Car Cruise. We had around 45 cars participate in the cruise that started off and ended at Scott's Two Bears Farm. We enjoyed the attendance of the Columbus Cars and Coffee group this year. View the photos here
We had a beautiful fall day, the roads were twisty, the cars were fast, and the fall colors, covered bridges, and rolling hills were picturesque. We enjoyed two hours of challenging driving through the hills and then enjoyed a catered lunch at the farm.
If you know of anyone who wants to be put on the mailing list, please send the contact info and make/model of the car to firstname.lastname@example.org
See you next year and stay tuned for more events.
2009 River Run
The 2009 River Run was absolutely fantastic. We had more than 100 cars participating. We had a wonderful sunny day for most of the cruise. We drove roads that Car and Driver magazine rated in the top 10 driving roads in the United States. If you ever find yourself in the small town of Sardis, Ohio, I recommend dining at Merv's Place. Outsanding food and the friendliest wait staff and patrons I have ever encountered. Just outside the restaurant is a 19th century water pump surrounded by a gazebo. It is only one of four remaining in the United States. It has been a gathering place for the community since the early 1800s. See the photos.
