Exotic Car Show

Sunday, June 11, from 9am to 3pm

at Arapahoe Community College

5900 S Santa Fe Drive, Littleton, CO 80120



Ability Connection Colorado’s Annual Colorado Concours d’ Elegance and Exotic Sports Car Show—one of the premiere car shows in the Rocky Mountain Region is almost here. The Colorado Concours is an annual event showcasing nearly 500 rare sports and classic cars, early collectibles and the latest exotics provided by local and regional car clubs. Many of these cars venture out only once a year to help Colorado children.

These prestigious beauties are treasures that few people ever get to experience. This family-oriented event draws more than 14,000 participants/attendees and features delicious food, live music, exhibitors, vendors, and fun for everyone! Proceeds from this spectacular event go to Ability Connection Colorado’s Creative Options for Early Childhood Education Centers.

The education centers provide early care, intervention, prevention, support and education services to at-risk Colorado families and nearly 700 infants, toddlers and pre-school children each year. Children receive developmental screenings and assessment services, individualized mental health services and other services tailored specifically to their learning. The wait-list consists of an average of 850 children annually. www.abilityconnectioncolorado.org

Please come by say hollo and give to a good cause and see the vintage cars.

I saw this in person when it raced the Mint, seeing it again I feel the same way I did then about it cool car but could not believe how far apart they sat in it, this was way before intercomms found their way into the sport. Reminds me of a Hummer scaled down. I read it was destroyed? I hope not as it is one cool unique vehicle type that would pop up at Mints and Baja then you would never see them again. A lot of that went on in the 70s

Gary Plagman'my first car was a Bronco the Horse With No Name with PJ Trans-Am boss 302 and the photo of the bronco was Colorado west 200.
It was a class 3 race car and ran the mint 400 in 1975. I sold it and then bilt the Exponent. The Exponent is just like the photo
Above it was taken at the Goodguys auto show this summer 2018.

How were you able to get an ex-PJ Trans Am Boss 302 for your rig?
