Classic cars of all kinds made their way to the Colorado Convention Centre over the weekend to take part in the Rocky Mountain Rod and Custom Car Show, which was celebrating its 15th year in existence.
As the name suggests, the majority of these 500 vintage vehicles were not only lovingly restored but also heavily customised by their current owners, to bring a little bit of showbiz sparkle to their ageing shells.
One of the most bizarre vehicles which was on show over the three day run was a Mac Fire Truck built in 1944 but modified in recent years to feature the powerful engine of a Dodge Viper.
The truck has also been given a visual upgrade to go with its motor overhaul and is now decked out in gold leaf detailing.
A few famous vehicles were also rolled out for the event, retaining their original form for posterity. The cars used in TV hit Starsky & Hutch (Ford Gran Torino, pictured above) and the Dukes of Hazard (1969 Dodge Charger) were amongst those which added to the glamour of the event.
Organiser, Joe Haska, said that visitors could see virtually any desirable car at the event and it looks likely that next year's show will be a similarly significant experience.
