This last weekend, we had the opportunity to have a vendor booth at the Arvada Firefighters' Car Show. Despite the fact that it was gray and rainy for most of the morning, we had a ton of fun! We gave away a basket provided by Arvada's own Olde Town Flower Shoppe, and got to meet a bunch of fun locals. And the cars! Over 100 classic cars, all in beautiful condition. My personal favorite was the 1929 Ford Model A.
This got me to thinking! What would it take to own your very own Ford Model A? Interestingly, not as much as you might think! Bert's Model A Center, down in Englewood, has a couple for sale, ranging between $19,000 and $35,000. They also advertise 'Project Cars,' which presumably means ones in less-than-ideal condition that could be purchased at a lower price point. While $20k isn't anything to sneeze at, if you're like me and you're drooling over an old Ford, now you know how much your dream car will cost you!
Anyone have any favorite car shows in the area we should check out? Any fun local activities we should get to this weekend?
