Annual VA car show

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- The Veterans Affairs Hospital here in Grand Junction had a car show Sunday.

It was the sixth year in a row old muscle cars and classics showed off their engines and rims.

Rain or shine, this event happens every year around Veterans Day. Organizers say that tradition will continue.

“It's cold and possibly rainy but just like they did in World War II or the Vietnam War, if it's raining and you’re in a foxhole you stay in it. So, if it's raining, we're going to stay with our cars until the show's over," said Ted Boothroyd, Wild West Falcons Car Club.

It was free to the public and vets—organizers say it's important for those staying there, to get out and mingle at events like this.
