Living in Boulder – Car Culture

If you are a classic car enthusiast and living in Boulder or elsewhere along the Front Range, you know it’s a paradise of classic car shows. Car shows begin in the spring and continue through the fall.

Recently, I attended a small Boulder Classic car show and showed one of my cars. Coffee & Classics is held on the last Sunday of the month on Pearl Street. It’s the Front Range’s premier gathering of pre-1997 European automobiles and enthusiasts. The true gems are hidden away in Boulder-area local garages. This time, there was a classic Ferrari Daytona and Testarossa, a beautiful dark green XKE Jaguar coupe, Panteria, 240z Series I,  Porsche, BMW’s, Mini and MGB, a Rolls Royce and many more.

Living in or visiting Boulder, you can always discover your own little gem.

 

Speaking of gems, here are the homes for sale in the area.
