Old Town Car Show, Fort Collins

This morning, Sarah and I met up with Nick, Josh and Ryan at the Taste of Fort Collins. As with last year, very conveniently, a car show of 200 automobiles was being held just two blocks away!

Despite having lost some of my passion for older, polluting, gas-guzzling and dollar-sucking vintage cars over the years, I still have an appreciation for the artistry and hard work that goes into making a sweet ride.

Sarah and I picked out favorites, though I already forgot what hers was. Mine was—perhaps predictably to anyone who knows my affection for open sports cars—a genuine AC Cobra painted in merlot. In any case, the quality of cars gracing Old Town Fort Collins was outstanding.
