Northwest Ohio is car country. Each Saturday throughout the year, the Real Wheels feature in The Lima News spotlights one of the many classic cars across the region and shares the interesting story behind its owner’s love for the vehicle. At this end of the year, we then feature the Top 10 of Real Wheels. We asked longtime car guy Greg Tomlinson to select the best of 2021. Tomlinson is the owner of ”Tomlinson Motor Service” in downtown Lima, a business that proudly notes it has been “Keeping the Classics humming since 1922.”
