Crosley Nationals 2010

Recommended Posts

Since Jim Bollman did not already post it, this years Crosley Nationals are as usual in Wauseon Ohio. They are held on the Fulton County Fairgrounds on July 8-10 this year. Lots of tours and events. Patrick Foster of Hemmings is our keynote speaker this year. Classes in the National show for everything Crosley from Radios and household appliances to car related and cars from stock to highly modified. New people are always welcome!! Also on exhibition will be the Crosley youth project ....come and see Nate's progress!! You don't have to be a Crosley owner to attend,....but we will try to make you one before you leave.

As a follow up to Crosley Nationals, a reminder that the feature car for this year will be the Pre War Crosleys. They were powered by a 2 cylinder air cooled Waukesha engine producing between 12 and 13 hp. We are hoping to get the largest gathering of pre war Crosleys in one place since they left Richmond, Indiana. I know of at least 3 brand new restorations that will be there including a stationwagon (full wood body) from Iowa. If you have a Crosley of any type, please consider bringing it to Crosley Nationals. If you are just in the area, please feel free to stop by and see this collection of over 100 Crosleys. We have a lot of fun and you will too!!

Dave is right we have a great time at our Nationals and you never know what you might see.

Elvis showed up one year.

Another year a Make and Break engine made entirely out of wood with a flint ignition was shown in the back of a Crosley Pickup. The owner/builder fired up the wood engine many times during the show for a few pops. Didn't let it run long each time, since when you burn a valve in a wood engine it is real serious.

Then there was the grass skiing behind a FarmOroad but I'll save that for another time.
