Legendary Rolling 50's Classics 40th Anniversary car show packs downtown Greenville

GREENVILLE – The Legendary Rolling 50’s Classics, Inc. car show on Broadway drew 450 cars for the Saturday downtown Greenville event on its 40th anniversary spanning 1982-2022.

Missing from the event was the originator of the event, Greenville’s Dave Niley.

“The Rolling 50’s car show this year we’re missing one of the most important people ever,” said Darke County Commissioner, Michael Stegall. “Mr. Dave Niley couldn’t be here this year and it’s a shame.  The car show once again is a success.”

“Dave is the heart and soul of this event and we all miss him,” added Stegall. “We all hope he gets better real soon and we want to see him back here next year.”

Stegall entered his new Plymouth P8 Sedan in the show for the first time.

“I brought it up and was hoping Dave could see it because I know he would really love it,” noted Stegall.

Downtown Broadway was packed with car enthusiast and took in the Food Trucks as well that lined the side street.

Tom Lucas had his ’57 Chevy in the show once again and too was missing Dave Niley at the day’s event.

“We miss Dave,” Lucas said. “He got this show started 40 years ago. “He’s a great guy.”

“I enjoy bringing my ‘57 Chevy up town and I enjoy seeing the other ones too,” added Lucas. “I’ve done it for years.”
