The Glory of Car Shows
In Colorado, the auto and car events such as the Colorado Grand spark fascination with four-wheel transportation. Car shows have become great places to meet friends and take families. Sponsors of the tour describe the elegance.
“Now celebrating 29 years of enabling so many enthusiasts to experience their cars as they were meant to be driven, enjoying an amazing week with like-minded people, all while having a meaningful impact on the communities we visit.”
What is the Colorado Grand?
The Colorado Grand is a stream of vintage cars that mount the picturesque roadways in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. Approximately 80 autos traverse 1000 miles of a preset course just about when the leaves begin to turn in September. The charity fundraising event is open to racing cars and sports cars of distinction. To qualify, these fancy cars must have been built in 1960 or before.
Applications for the Colorado Grand
It pays to be decisive and move quickly. Applications for this special event must be received by the beginning of May. Inquire at co1000.com to find out details and eligibility for your vehicle. Vehicles will be assigned parade license plates and all drivers must be licensed. Each car entry will be assigned lodging with double occupancy for every night of the tour. Meals are included. Along the tour, registrants receive breakfasts, lunches, and dinners for the driver and a co-driver. The scenic tour lasts about six days.
Many car buffs say that the Colorado Grand produces “the best route book in Vintage Rallies today!” Beginning with the four-color cover showcasing vehicles from previous events, the route book details the instructions and Colorado’s fascinating history. It also highlights the history of every participating car.
Donations totaled more than $5 million in 2016. These monies went to the Colorado State Patrol Family Foundation, Robert Sutherland Foundation, college scholarships for students from every town on the tour, and over 20 other organizations.
