For the Rocktober fan who has everything: The Rockiesmobile

Spotted for sale in Chicago by a Westword alum now livin' large in Chi-town, this '69 Chevy Chevelle with a certain recognizable black-and-purple color scheme has popped up just in time for the start of a glorious new Rocktober. The asking price is $10,500, which inspired us to do a little math:

  • One-way ticket to Chicago: $150
  • Car purchase: $10,500
  • Gas back to Denver: $100
  • Showing up at Game 1 of the playoffs in the ultimate Rockiesmobile: Priceless.
  • KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
