One of the many cars set to be exhibited at Rolling into Roanoke this Saturday, July 21, is a 2012 Cayman R. Produced by German sports car manufacturer Porsche, it will fit right in at this year’s show, as the theme is “Across the Pond” and European cars and motorcycles will be in the spotlight.

While the aforementioned Cayman R may hail from overseas, its owner, Klint Crawford, does not. In fact, when Crawford comes to Roanoke, he’ll be coming home.

Rolling into Roanoke postponed to next Saturday

The Rolling into Roanoke car show has been postponed to Saturday, July 28.

The threat of inclement weather on the show’s original date, Saturday, July 21, is what prompted organizers to move the event.

“We just had a tough decision there, but we had to make the call, based on what’s forecasted,” explains Rick Fischer, the show’s chairman. “It just didn’t look good. We kept watching, kept watching and it kept getting worse.”
