Every Labor Day weekend, as part of Windsor’s Harvest Days celebration, a Cruise-In is hosted by the NoCo Classic Cruisers Car Club. As has been the trend since the start of this show, the Windsor Cruise-In Car Show grows every year, this year approaching 300 vehicles.
There's a lot to be said for local community car shows such as the Windsor show. Granted they don’t draw the large number of cars like the Good Guys Nationals or the Road Knights “Blue Light Special” Show held in Northern Colorado. On the plus side, local shows such as the Windsor Cruise-In are free to the public, family oriented and bring a more diverse collection of cars than is typically seen at the larger shows, which primarily showcase street rods with many high end “trailer queen” cars. Windsor’s strategic location being centrally located between Fort Collins, Loveland and Greeley helps draw cars from all over Northern Colorado.
The Town of Windsor and many local businesses sponsor the show. Proceeds from the show go to the Windsor Parks and Recreation Department Reduced Fee Program. This program provides qualifying Windsor residents with a scholarship to participate in Windsor Parks and Recs activities, such as fitness and pool passes and other activities.
View the attached slide show to see the wide variety of classics, street rods and muscle cars that were at this year's Windsor Cruise-In.
This week’s Trivia Question: Where did the Mercury Montclair get its name?
Answer to last week’s Trivia Question: The Rambler car name was first used by the Jeffrey Company from 1902 to 1913. Charles Nash purchased the Jeffrey Company and years later resurrected the Rambler name on the 1950 Nash Rambler. The last car with the Rambler name was an AMC S/C Rambler American in 1969.
