The weather turned out beautiful for the AppleFest Car Show last Saturday and the sunny skies brought out a lot of car lovers and their favorite projects,
There were 118 entrants in this year's event and beautiful examples of the auto rebuilder's craft were on display from Arvada, Craig, points in between, and from the region as well.
There was a large contingent from the Grand Junction-based Wheels West Car Club which attended the show following the club meeting earlier that morning.
This year's People's Choice award went to a restored 1949 Willys Overlander Jeepster owned by Patrick Heinan of Grand Junction.
Other trophy-winning entries in the show were the following:
• Best Antique, 1919 Model T owned by Jenna Bemis of Austin;
• Best Classic, 1954 Cadillac Fleetwood owned by Chuck Zulian of Craig;
• Best Pickup, a 1959 Chevy Apache owned by John Davis of Grand Junction;
