AROUND HOME: Mopars treats McCandless Veterans Nursing Home residents to car show

Dodge Chargers, Mustangs and World War II Army vehicles roared into Florence recently for the highly anticipated Southern Colorado Mopars car club show, a private event for residents of the Bruce McCandless Veterans Nursing Home.

A tradition since 2007, the show included 34 collector and specialty vehicles from the 1940s through present day from Colorado Mopar Club of Denver, Tri-Lakes Cruisers Club, Southern Colorado Mustang Club, Stockers Car Club and Military Vehicle Collectors of Colorado.

As they shared a barbecue lunch, residents and car buffs traded car tales. But perhaps the most special were the war stories, especially those shared by a Normandy survivor, a fighter pilot and a veteran who served on a bomber base in England during WWII.

"Ya just gotta love those WWII guys!" said SCM Activities Director John Rhodes.

Show participants also donated more than $250 to the veterans' home.
