Estimated 4,000 check out annual Good Times Car Show in Old Town
A record-breaking total of 331 vintage vehicles were on display for a steady stream of strolling citizens Sunday, Aug. 22 at the
annual Good Times Car Show in Old Colorado City.
The previous entry record for the show, which has been in Old Town for 10 years, was last year's 296, according to event spokesperson Tony Di Censo of the Southern Colorado Mopars Club. He estimated 4,000 people came to the event, which chiefly featured restored cars from years prior to the mid-70s.
The Car Show was a fund-raiser for Canine Companions for Independence, a non-profit organization that trains assistance dogs for the disabled. Several thousand dollars were raised, although Di Censo said the exact total has not yet been calculated.
Catherine Barbo of Bon Ton's Restaurant and secretary of the Old Colorado City Associates (OCCA) merchants group, said the event was “fabulous, awesome, wonderful. It brought new people to Old Colorado City, and the car people were so polite and kind.”
