OUR SHOW'S HISTORY In 1994 the Vintage Auto Club decided to host one show a year to benefit local charities. It would be called The Blast From The Past and held in July around the 4th years of this show it was held at the Delaware City Water Works Park north of the City. After a few years, it was moved to South Campus of Delaware County JVS and the date was moved to the fourth Saturday of July. In 2001, the show was moved to downtown Delaware after a couple of City Council members asked the Club to host a car show downtown. The “Blast” became co-hosted by The Vintage Auto Club and The City of Delaware and is open to cars, trucks and motorcycles of all years, makes and models. Founded in 2001 by the Vintage Auto Club of Delaware, Ohio, the Performance Charity Car Show was formerly known as “Blast from the Past”, and has existed as one of the only legal outdoor drive-in automobile shows in the USA. Some of the cleanest, most rare vintage automobiles can be found lining the streets of beautiful downtown Delaware on this day, along with live music, food, games, vehicle award ceremonies, a live raffle and several other activities. This show has been very successful in the downtown setting. Historic Sandusky Street has been filled with 500+ cars, trucks and motorcycles and thousands of spectators at times when the weather was beautiful and even with less desirable weather, the show seems to draw a surprising attendance. The show is very popular with enthusiasts all over Ohio. It also has attendees from West Virginia, Michigan and one time Florida. The show has several times been voted one of the top downtown Ohio on a poll taken by Cruizin’ Times Magazine located in the Cleveland area. Proceeds benefit the Arthritis Foundation and Impact 60.
