Burn The Point celebrates classic cars

The Burn the Point Classic Car Show draws car enthusiasts of all ages.

Car owners brought their classics to Rocky Mountain College for the second year on Saturday.

More than 500 participated in the parade Friday and about half that number came to the car show.

The show gives a chance to see the workmanship, history and tradition of cars.

“The car show I would say it’s really cool,” said Teegin Luedt, 11,  who showed the family’s 1929 Model A pickup t truck. “There’s a lot of old historical cars here that people painted and made nice.”

Luedt rode in the Burn the Point Parade with is grandfather on Friday.

“Got to wave at the people,” Luedt said. “It was really fun.”

Burn the Point has become a  Labor Day weekend tradition.

“It’s very rewarding and you make friends with different guys from different towns,” said Ron Duty, co-organizer for Burn the Point.  “That’s the only place you see them but it’s really a neat deal. The love of cars is a big deal for everybody.  I don’t know anybody that don’t like to watch them.”

Some car owners received trophies for the best in several categories.

Burn the Point raises money for the Chase Hawks Memorial Association.
