This year’s 36th annual Colorado Concours D’Elegance showcased some of the world’s most notable, collectible, fastest, most exotic, rare and historic horseless carriages, motorcars, automobiles and sports cars. An event benefiting Creative Options for Early Childhood Education Centers, a program of Ability Connection Colorado. What started out to be an overcast and cloudy day was brightened up with a colorful mix of flamboyant styles and designs that, in many cases, have withstood the test of time. Automobiles of many makes and styles ranging in age from over 100 years, that are still in great mechanical working order, to that of today’s advanced technological wonders. The “concours” drew stellar numbers of both participants that displayed their cars and attendees that admired the examples on display as museum quality works of art.
