Vintage cars heading toward Durango!

Antique cars to Durango

Antique cars headed to Durango

Hwy 160 runs from Durango to Pagosa Springs and features scenic vistas. Sometimes it offers even more.

Today on our return trip to Durango from Bayfield we noticed several vintage vehicles ahead of us. Very Vintage! Then as luck would have it, we ended up stopped behind two of them at a highway construction happening.

Turned out the vehicle was a 1920 beauty from Iowa! Who would have thought of traveling that far in a car of that vintage? What would you do for parts in the event of a break down? Where would you find a mechanic who could work on something of that age? How brave to make that drive! Wonder what kind of gas mileage those cars get? It seems incredible that they have made it this far from where ever they started out!

There must be an antique event somewhere in Durango, but we have not heard anything about it. We will be looking all around when we get back in town this evening.

Vintage cars have always been an interest of mine. In my youth I even indulged in building vintage model cars. The oldest I ever attempted was a 1932 Ford. Imagine one in Candy Apple Red with rolled and Pleated seats.

There is something incredibly splendid about the lines of those Vintage Vehicles.

How many times have you encountered a convoy of Antique cars? Just one more of the super perks of living in Durango Colorado!  In the event a trip to the Durango area is in your future don’t forget to call us 970-759-1007!  We’re Ralph and Jeanne…. The Durango Home Team

Today took us over for a day trip to Pagosa and a lovely tour of the Museum at 95 Pagosa Drive (The main drag). It’s pretty cool! Tons of cool stuff on display!
