For car enthusiasts, summer is the season for road trips, time in the garage, and, best of all, car shows. Whether you’re looking to showcase your masterpiece or admire the dream machines on display, check out the 16th Annual Glenwood Springs Car Show for a great time. With live music, door prizes, a cooling tent, a spark plug-changing contest, and oldies dress-up, there’s plenty of fun to be had.
While everyone is welcome to join in the festivities, if you’re looking to show off your car, you’ll want to do a little preparation. Here are a few tips to get your car in showing shape.
First, give it a thorough wash; then buff out any minor flaws with a smoothing hand polish. Follow that up with a finishing glaze, and finish with a few coats of high-shine carnauba wax. You can also use conditioners to freshen up all of your car’s interior and exterior plastic, rubber, and leather surfaces. When you’re at the show, keep a microfiber cloth and touch-up spray on hand to clear away any dust, smudges, or fingerprints.
The car show will last from July 26-27. On July 26, the event will begin with a cruise-in at Vicco’s Charcoalburger Drive-In at 6:00 p.m., while on July 27, the lineup for the show starts at 8 a.m. in the Glenwood Springs High School parking lot. If you’re looking for a place to stay, try the event’s lodging partners at Red Mountain Inn and Caravan Inn.
