King Midget Cars cruise through West Lafayette

| September 11, 2018

WEST LAFAYETTE – Members of the Ohio Chapter of the King Midget Car Club cruised around West Lafayette on Sept. 7 to participate in a scavenger hunt held in connection with the village’s yellow flag garage sales. Nothing too expensive was on their lists, but according to father and son Nick and Jeff Kreinbrink from Shelby, there were some pretty unique items they had to hunt for like a piece of driftwood, an article of clothing with a certain size flower and a police or fireman’s badge. “I got the badge,” Jeff said. The club member who earned the most points and spent the least amount of money earned a prize when the group gathered for a cruise-in that evening at Living Faith Church of the Nazarene. On Sept. 8 the group went for a cruise on back roads. “I enjoy driving my (King Midget) car and getting to meet people from all over,” Jeff said. “My three kids have these now too and so do my two brothers and my sister.” Pictured from left are Jeff Kreinbrink, Ken Kennell from Barberton, and Nick Kreinbrink.
