After debating whether or not to take our almost 5 year old with us, my wife and I decided to have family stay with him while we enjoy a night away in Vail. Timing hasn't worked out the past 3 years to make it to the Colorado Grand, but I'm excited to make it this year. Weather looks good for the weekend, and it's also Oktoberfest weekend, too. Many drinks Friday, many cool cars on Saturday morning at Lionshead.

If you haven't checked out their site, here's what's typically in attendance:

The Colorado Grand® is an annual charity tour for 1960 and earlier sports and race cars of distinction. The tour attracts entrants from around the world and always includes several 1920′s and 1930′s cars. Typical makes include Mercedes-Benz, Ferrari, Porsche, Bugatti, Alfa Romeo, Bentley, Aston Martin, Jaguar, Maserati, Allard, and such exotic names as Amilcar, Cisitalia, Squire, Delahaye, and Talbot-Lago.
