Street Rodders for Life

The Street Rodders for Life car show began five years ago as a way for a few dozen gearheads to talk shop and show off their rides. It has since grown into a full-on contest celebrating a classic American pastime.

On May 28th, 2012, more than 400 cars, trucks and motorcycles, dating from the 1920s to the present day, will roll in to compete in classes that are divided by decades. The most popular years are the 1940's through the 1960's; fans can catch glimpses of everything from Model T's to Harleys, says organizer Randy Cheney. "It's just an awesome way to view and celebrate old cars."

Street Rodders for Life runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Applebee's parking lot at 10625 West Colfax Avenue in Lakewood (registration for folks showing cars begins at 7 a.m.). Admission is free, but $5 gets you an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast provided by Applebee's; there will also be $5 raffle tickets available with a chance to win a flat-screen TV, lawn mower and more. Live music will be provided by the Beloved Invaders, as well as mobile DJ Van Jeffries.

For more information, call 303-519-2254.
