There are so many activities going on during the summer in Colorado. I especially love this time of the year because I get to enjoy one of my favorite pastimes and that is classic cars. I have been an avid fan of classic cars for quite a while now and I find myself collecting and restoring more and more cars. There is something really awesome about classic cars, it is hard to describe so bare with me as I try to explain why I enjoy these beautiful pieces of art. I have been going to car shows for a long time and really started to get into restoring these beauties when I was a young adult. As I have grown older, going to car shows has been an activity I now get to share with my wife and daughter and has become a really fun adventure all of us can do together.
Besides being able to spend quality time with my family, I love to go to car shows around the state to meet other car collectors and restorers like myself. I always love to hear peoples stories on how they started into cars, what their first car was and about the cars they have today. Then there is also the fun part of looking at all the automobiles and seeing if something catches my eye and may just have to come home with me.
