History of the Colorado Concours d’Elegance & Exotic Sports Car Show
This event was the brainchild of two Rocky Mountain Region Porsche Club of America car collecting members; Tom Scott and Stim Kennedy. In 1983, these individuals presented the idea for a car show to the Board of Directors of RMR with the idea of making the event a fundraiser for a deserving local charity.
In the first two years, 1984 and 1985, the show was part of the “Carousel Days”, a benefit for The Marvin Davis Children’s Diabetes Foundation, and was held in the Cherry Creek Shopping Center parking lot.
There were approximately 30 collectible cars on display and the contribution for the charity was about $1,200.
In 1986, the charity was changed to Cerebral Palsy of Colorado (name changed to Ability Connection Colorado in 2013) Children’s Program when the Davis Family moved to California.
The car show was then moved to the University Hills Shopping Center and was there for four or five years. In 1993, the car show was moved to its present location, Arapahoe Community College.
Now in its 36th year, the event is referred to as the “Colorado Concours d’Elegance & Exotic Sports Car Show” and has raised over $2M for the Creative Options for Early Childhood Education Program at Ability Connection Colorado.
