I live on the Westside of Colorado Springs and alot of my friends are into classic cars and almost all of us are tatted in not artists ourselves.

I wouldn't really worry about it.

Thank you SevenAteSix, the more I hear about this, the more it puts a smile on my husbands', (and mine), face. I was thinking to myself, yeah, maybe we are moving to another state, but not another planet. I guess with unknown places, your instinct is to wonder.... Thank you for your help and info. and thanks to LoveBoating, also, for your encouraging words. -

Hi there,

From Burbank, CA. We went to Colorado two weeks back and visited parker and Castle Rock mostly. We fell in love with it. We didn't have much time to visit Fort Collins, rated number one place to live in the US, but the in-laws (who will be relocating as well) are visiting it next week along with some other areas in the northern denver parts. We feel from our trip to Colorado we can't move fast enough to start out new life. We're a family of three.

I'm excited to hear about Old Cars. My husband has a '67 nova that he plans to re do himself. And, my father in law has 4 hot rods ranging from a '40 chevy with a BIG block to a crusier convertible.

The weather when we were there was 34 the first day but I'll tell you it felt like 55 because of the bright sun. When we were driving through town we saw people jogging in shorts. There was snow patches in some areas because of some snow they got a day or two before we arrived. Considering the weather, it's all what you make of it. The strongest snow month there is March. But when it rains in California, you're inside anyways because no one knows how to drive...ha, ha. It's the same thing. Thank god though for bigger houses there because being stuck in our 1700 sq foot house during the rainy season won't be as enjoyable as a 3000 + basement home.

Good Luck!

You got that right. People are either sliding off the roads or driving in "granny mode".

My dad also likes collecting cars. He has two nicely restored '57 T-Birds and several other cars. He managed to squeeze 5 cars into a 3 car garage (with 2 hydraulic lifts). He stores another in a car trailer.

Default Fair

I moved from OC in May and know about tattoos, old cars. If you live in the Metro Denver areas you will be fine, but if you live up in plains or mountains then there will be more stares.

As long as those Tats aren't gang related, people don't really care anymore. I worked in LA as a Sheriff Deputy and it is prevelant everywhere out there.

Move here, it is far nicer and more affordable than California! As far as drivers go, well I personally think that people from Colorado are worse! They can't drive well even when it is dry and sunny. I once heard a dj on the radio say here in Denver, "How can you tell a Californian is driving around here, they are the ones giving the finger to all of us that think we are driving fine."
