Very Cool Vintage Cars Come to the Hawthorne Hotel

I never really know who or what is going to pop into my day, just begging to be blogged. I guess that's why I never run out of things to post here, despite posting every single day without fail for nearly 4-1/2 years!

This week, it was these cool cars and their very nice owners, who drove here from their homes in Newark, OHIO! They belong to an antique automobile club, and do one of these long drives together at least once a year. They found out about the Hawthorne Hotel through our rating in AAA.

I hope you enjoy seeing these cars, too.

1968 Pontiac LeMans Convertible, owned by Ray and Ruth Ann


1936 4-Door Ford Sedan, owned by Frank & Deb


1940 Chevy Convertible, owned by Al & Connie


1941 Plymouth 4-Door, Special Deluxe, with "suicide door",
owned by Tom & Jayne



The interior upholstery work was all done by Jayne. I love the detail work on the door, in the photo below.


The back door was called a 'suicide door' because if you opened it while the car was in motion, it would certainly mean you were trying to commit suicide, since it opens 'backwards'.



I love the detail on the back of the Red Ford. It says "My Little Runaway"



































This week we had the pleasure of welcoming four couples from Newark, Ohio who are members of the Weekend Wanderers automobile club. All four of their cars were parked in front of the hotel as they arrived, and I went out to talk to them and take their photos.
