The Hippie Limo’s Award-Winning Labor Day Weekend – 2012
Festivals and car shows are mainstays of the Labor Day Weekend. Last year when the Hippie Limo was only in its first year of business, we attended both the 2011 Louisville Labor Day Fall Festival and the 2011 Boulder Creek Labor Day Hometown Festival and showed our amazing Samba. Unlike last year when we barely knew what we were doing — to the point of forgetting to pick up our registration packet to be considered for judging, as an example — this year we had our act together. And it paid off. The Hippie Limo brought home two more awards that now adorn our mantel alongside our Best of Show award from the Denver Modernism Show‘s Motorama Car Show.
- Best Classic – Louisville, CO 17th Annual Fall Festival & Motorfest: This particular show hosted by the City of Louisville was judged by local news anchor Mike Landess who made several good choices in winners, including a beautiful 1924 Ford Model T, best popularized by the character Lizzy in the movie Cars.
- 1st Place Original/Restored 1960-86 – Boulder, CO 15th Annual Boulder Creek Hometown Festival & Car Show: This car show was sponsored the Starlite Diner & Lounge, Boulder Creek Events, Adam’s Premium Car Care, Valley Chrysler-Dodge, Rose Hill Wine & Spirits, and Law Enforcement Torch Run to benefit Special Olympics Colorado. Members of the The Rocky Mountain Nova Club took time out of their holiday weekend to judge this show.
