Diversions

The AAUW Lakewood Branch enjoys Diversions — one-time events that are entertaining, educational, and often “outside the box.” In the past we have experienced outdoor adventures, attended cultural and historical programs, and explored the world of chocolate.


2018 Diversions

Rambler Ranch Museum in Elizabeth

Monday October 22

Meet at 9 am to carpool

Arrive at 10 am.  Tour is $15.
Walk around the grounds for 60-90 minutes.
Go back to Elizabeth for lunch.

Hidden in the rolling hills of the Black Forest, about 60 miles east of downtown Denver, Colorado, sits one of Colorado’s best kept secrets– Terry Gale’s Rambler Ranch–the largest collection of AMC vehicles in the world.

Terry’s been collecting Nash, Rambler, and AMC vehicles for over 24 years. He has everything from a 1902 Rambler “roadster” replica to the prototype of AMC’s 1955 Nash Ambassador in his massive collection. Terry started with just a small building situated among the tall lodgepole pine trees that cover his 165-acres near the small town of Elizabeth, Colorado. That first ‘garage’ was built on the grounds in 1993 to house the 30 cars he’d collected. He filled that building fast, so he built a larger building.

There is also a diner, gas station, etc.  There is a house furnished with 70s decor.  There are about 7 buildings.  We would like to invite you and your husband or significant other to this event.

Google “Rambler Ranch Museum in Elizabeth” and you can see many photos, etc.

Call Elnore Grow, 303-697-6088, if you need more information or want to reserve for the carpool.
