If your name is Shelby, a love for classic cars comes with the territory. I don't know a spoiler from a spark plug, but I do like to walk around car shows and pretend that one day, I could drive a sage green '68 GT500.

Yeah, I've put some thought into this. A girl can dream.

September 11 through September 13, Goodguys Rod and Custom Association will be rolling over 2,000 hot rods, classics and vintage trucks into The Ranch in Loveland for the 18th Annual Colorado Nationals.

The weekend-long event will host a variety of vendors, live music, shows and contests.

And, if you've got a project of your own in the garage, or you love a good rummage, the swap meet will have a miscellany of hard-to-find classic automotive parts and memorabilia up for sale.

I'll be in search of the perfect Mustang. See you there?
