The event that changed our lives forever, the Wrightwood Annual Classic Car Show, is coming to town this Saturday, Aug. 17, 2013.
In the summer of 2009 we came up to camp near Wrightwood, and stopped to eat at the Car Show on our way back home to the flatlands. We'd been coming up to ski at Mountain High for a couple years and had dreamt of owning a little ski cabin but they were too expensive when we'd looked into it before the global financial crisis of 2008. At the Car Show we happened to sit next to a woman who worked with the Wrightwood Chamber, and we got to chatting about the town. She told us about how the real estate prices had crashed -- bad news for the town but good news to us.
When we got home we started looking at Wrightwood realty. Less than 48 hours later we went back up to look at properties, and even put in our first offer that day (unfortunately outbid). Within a couple weeks we were in escrow on our cabin, and the rest, as they say, is history. Since that day we've purchased two other homes in Wrightwood, one that we live in full time since we fell in love with the town too much to go back to the flatlands after our ski weekends, and another cabin that was just too good a deal to pass up.
So go to the Classic Car Show this weekend -- you never know, it could change your life!
