8th Annual Open House Car Show

Free car show? Not many of those around in our neck of the woods but Interstate Batteries has done one for the last seven years and this summer was no different.

There was plenty of parking for hot rods, kustoms, classics and other kinds of cars; door prizes; food and a live ‘concert’ on a sunny Saturday…what more could you ask for in an open house?

How ‘bout some shade for the 98 degrees summer day? Yep, there was even some of that in the form of tall cottonwoods and evergreens next door and it was quite welcome to all.

Interstate Batteries in Denver invited car guys to bring in their cars for their 8th Annual show n’ shine on Saturday, July 23, in their parking lot and locals didn’t disappoint. About 75 cars showed up for a laid-back show.

Local Band ‘The Atomic Drifters’ played late morning for about 90 minutes before having to leave to head back up to the foothills and Bandimere Speedway for the Mopar Mile-High drags going on that weekend. The Atomic Drifters put out some rockabilly, some good old 1960’s rock and roll and a few tunes of their own.

Interstate had one of their boats on display, along with the junior dragster they sponsor and their shop was open so participants could see wander around. Emcee Dave Bos handled the microphone up until the band’s performance and after he gave away two Mega-start batteries and a bunch of other door prizes.
