It was a blast from the past as the tiny Crosley vehicles invaded the Fulton County Fairgrounds this past weekend. On July 10th-12th the Crosley Club held their annual National meet and awards. The Crosley club was first founded in 1969 and has now grown to over 1,000 members strong. The Crosley’s were first made in 1939 and they stopped production in 1955. The Crosley was a hit during World War II due to its great gas mileage. The best model was the Crosley station wagon, which in 1948, sold more station wagons than any other car maker. Coming in a close second to the station wagon was the Crosley sedan. In 1952, however, sales decreased dramatically and soon after production of the Crosley ceased.
The main event at this Year’s event was the Road Rally Friday night when the Crosleys lined up at the fairgrounds before cruising into downtown Wauseon making a stop at Tiny’s Dairy Barn.
On Saturday this year’s winner was announced as well as the silent auction winners. Door prizes were also given away all day Saturday.
