In September, spectators were happy to attend the 38th Annual Colorado Concours d'Elegance & Exotic Sports Car Show, especially after it was delayed for 15 months due to the pandemic.
The long-awaited event featured new cars, old cars, and electric vehicle displays, Torque News reported.
The Colorado Concours D'Elegance car event featured electric vehicles
The event hardly disappointed spectators who had waited long enough to attend the show. The show included more new and electric cars this year, like a 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E with Star Wars Storm Trooper graphics.
According to Torque News, Brian Kjaer and his wife bought the 2021 Ford Mach-E about a month before the show. They had wanted to purchase a Tesla, but there was a six-month wait—which is why they went with the Mach-E instead. But they are really happy with their purchase and said it is easy to charge at home.
It was Brian’s idea to add the Star Wars graphics, and it certainly made the car a fun addition to the Colorado Concours D'Elegance.
A brief history of the car event
The Colorado Concours d'Elegance was the brainchild of Stim Kennedy and Tom Scott. Both were car collecting members of the Rocky Mountain Region Porsche Club of America.
The intention was to make the event a fundraiser for a deserving local charity. The show was part of the "Carousel Days" in its first two years and benefited The Marvin Davis Children's Diabetes Foundation. In 1984 and 1985, the event was held in the Cherry Creek Shopping Center parking lot.
Then, about 30 collectible cars were on display, and the contribution for the charity was almost $1,200. The charity changed to Cerebral Palsy of Colorado (later changed to Ability Connection Colorado in 2013) Children's Program. That happened when the Davis Family moved to California.
In the following four or five years, the car show was held at the University Hills Shopping Center and was moved to Arapahoe Community College in 1993. The Colorado Concours d'Elegance & Exotic Sports Car Show is an annual event showcasing the latest luxury exotic and supercars.
Also, almost 500 early collectible vehicles, rare sports cars, and classic vintage automobiles are on display during the event. Proceeds from the spectacular car show go to Ability Connection Colorado's Creative Options for Early Childhood Education Centers.
That allows more than 400 children of all abilities and economic circumstances to receive comprehensive educational experiences, developmental screening, individualized mental health services, and assessment services every year.
The result of these services is discovering potential delays, which provides an opportunity for one to receive critical early intervention.
What other popular cars were on display?
In addition to the Ford Mach-E, some of the popular vehicles on display at the 2021 Colorado Concours d'Elegance event included the 1957 Chevrolet Suburban and the newest Ford GTs, BMWs and Ferraris
