Instead of pedestrians having to be careful of cars driving through Old Colorado City Sunday, Aug. 16, they will get to roam freely through the streets while several hundred cars will be sitting in one place for their review.
       Free and open to the public, the occasion will be the 24th annual Good Times Car Show from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. In keeping with the format of recent years, Colorado Avenue will be shut off between 23rd and 27th streets during the event and for an hour or more before and after. Up to 425 classic vehicles - a few new or customized, most restored from originals dating back over 100 years - will line the avenue and side streets.
       The event is sponsored by the following area car clubs: Colorado Cruizers, Pikes Peak Corvair Club, Rocky Mountain Mustangers and Southern Colorado Mopars.
       The entered cars will be judged in various different categories. Awards will be given at 2 p.m., the schedule states.
       Fees paid by entrants will cover event costs, with proceeds going to the Canine Companions for Independence, a national nonprofit that provides trained dogs for people with disabilities. Last year's event donated $7,000, and the total to date is $90,000, the website states.
       The Good Times Car Show has been in Old Colorado City for all but its first three years.
       The event website (goodtimescarshow.com) states that entries are welcomed in “all models, all years and restorations in progress.”
       For more information, or to enter a vehicle, call Kathy at 648-3544 or Mike at 390-8902, or e-mail goodtimescarshow@msn.com
