The Rocky Mountain Street Rod Nationals are back in Pueblo this weekend, and thanks to a rule change, the event is growing.
Up until last year the customized cars had to be manufactured in 1949 or before. This year they've added another three decades. So while most cars are still from the 1930s and 40s, there are quite a few representing the 50s, 60s and even 70s.
Custom is the word. Many have been modernized with air conditioning and cruise control, often with a much larger engine, while keeping their original charm.
More than 2,000 cars are expected in Pueblo, gathering each day at the Colorado State Fairgrounds. Admission is $14 for adults, $5 for kids 6 - 12.
