Founded in 1983 by Jim McLear and Steve Peters, the local event continues to grow and is billed as one of Ohio’s largest cruise-ins with approximately 500 entrants and continues to put Greenville on the map.

“We have a real good turnout,” said Rolling 50’s president, Kenny Erwin. “Dave Niley would be proud. It has gone real smooth like it usually does.”

The Late Dave Niley, former president of organization was honored with a moment of silence. Niley served more than 30 years as president for the group.

Niley took the idea of a Downtown Greenville Cruise-In to then Greenville Mayor, the late Jack Harless and the rest is history as the event is now in its 34th year.

“My phone has rung all week,” Erwin said. “People from Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, Columbus, they’ve come from everywhere. It is a really good turnout.”

The Rolling 50’s made donations to the Cancer Society, Shriners and Tor Priority Veterans, Inc. prior to presenting the winning trophies.

Erwin took time to thank the City of Greenville for its support of the downtown cruise-in.

“The City really works with us,” he stated. “They really help us keeping it going. I have to commend them for it.”
