Some bizarre vehicles will converge on Trinidad in southern Colorado this weekend, September 13-15. A hearse outfitted with bat wings and flame throwers, a VW Bug covered with cigarette butts and an Isuzu Trooper adorned with a cityscape crafted from fused glass area just a few. These and dozens of other so-called “art cars” are part an event called Artocade
