Cruise Above the Clouds Car Show

When: Sept. 11-12, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. 2010

When I was a kid, I memorized the make and model of virtually every car I'd ever seen from the backseat of my parents' station wagon. (This is just one of the reasons why my wife today unhesitatingly places me on the autism spectrum.) Surely, 7-year-old me would pee himself (myself?) at the 19th annual Cruise Above the Clouds car show, home to 200-plus hot rods, cars and motorcycles. Saturday's the big day for events in both Woodland Park and Cripple Creek — see cruiseabovetheclouds.com for a rundown — but today there's a Cripple Creek "show 'n shine" that starts at 9 and goes until 1 on Bennet Avenue. It's free to attend, and trophies will be awarded at 1:30 at Wildwood Casino. Sadly, I don't believe any are given for best automotive memorization. — Kirk Woundy
