A bunch of us got together and made the trek to Canon City for the Abbey Car show. 5 of us caravaned from the Denver area. All the cars performed flawlessly. The weather was good but the air conditioner blew hot air on the way home.:(

The Pikes Peak Chapter supplied a great lunch and welcomed the Conestoga Chapter with open arms! Thank you very much! Dinner was had by some at the Gooseberry Patch in Penrose before we went our separate ways. What a fun day!

Mark,
That thing ran strong! It probably could have towed all of us!:D

That album was great! Thanks for the work. Too many to list, but you sure don't see a Kaiser Darrin at your local meet that often, wow.

Dave,
The Darrin was really nice but for some reason it only placed 2nd in its class. Trust me when I say "I could have taken more pictures!" The show was so crowded that it was tough getting shots. They limited the show to 450 cars. I bet they maxed out!

My wife's uncle had a motel in Canon City back in the 1980's.
We took her folks out there in '82 & '87.
Her uncle took us to Pike's Peak in '82 and I remember seeing a '61 Lark coming down off the mountain. I remember wondering how safe that was without a split reservoir master cylinder!!!

Thanks for sharing the pictures. Interesting to see a Packard Hawk there as well as a 2004 Avanti Convertible. Taxi Cab is very nice. Thanks for taking the time to post these.
