Glenwood Springs Ford clears the lot of today’s latest models and used cars Saturday to make way for the dealership’s annual showcase of yesteryear’s makes and models.

The 2015 Classic Car Show takes place at the Ford dealership, located at 55 Storm King Road, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, featuring cars and trucks from 1979 or earlier. Registration for those wanting to enter the show will be from 7-9:45 a.m.

All donations from the event benefit the Windwalkers equine therapy center in Carbondale, including T-shirt sales featuring unique designs by five local artists.

DJ music from the 1950s and ’60s will set the tone for the day, and the hometown Ford dealers will be serving up hot dogs, drinks and ice cream bars starting at 11 a.m.

This is the 15th year for the event, which is expected to feature close to 200 entries, said Lowell Bushart, used car sales manager at the Ford dealership and one of the car show coordinators.

People can vote on their favorites in categories including Best Original, Best Custom, Most Unique, Best Classic, Best Antique, People’s Choice and Competition Specific. Awards, including judges’ favorites, will be announced at 3 p.m.

Throughout the day, more than $1,000 in door prizes will be handed out, and there will be a dynamometer on site to test the horsepower of the show vehicles.

In addition, a video crew from the National Automobile Dealers Association will be at the show shooting clips as part of a feature about the hometown of the incoming NADA president. Jeff Carlson, owner of the Glenwood Ford and Subaru dealerships, is vice president for the organization this year and is set to take the helm in January.

The video crew has been in Glenwood Springs all this week gathering footage around town and at other dealerships, Carlson said.
