Another month, another cars and coffee. Nothing could prepare me for the sheer onslaught of NSX’s at the show. I have seen my fair share, but they never fill up an entire lane. Sure, there was an EVO who snuck in the lineup, but since they are no longer made (and I really enjoyed reviewing the EVO X) I forgive the…
Every other month a local European shop does a cars and coffee. These are much smaller than the ones that Harpers Auto Square(Knoxville’s Porsche, Audi, Acura, Infiniti, Maserati, Alfa Romeo, Jaguar, Volkswagen, and Fiat dealer) puts on two or three times a year.
I was so tired I could barely hold my camera. There was a fintail though so hey.
Car and Driver put on a pretty epic Cars and Coffee yesterday morning over at the M1 Concourse. I drooled a lot, enjoy the pics.
Got up early and arrived at Engineered Automotive with some beautiful weather! Brought out my Canon T6s with a Tamron 18-200 mm lens and I must say it went quite well. One of the issues I had was that the JPEG duplicate of the RAWs sometimes looked better than I could edit the RAWs themselves (balancing colours and…
Every Cars & Coffee event should have a requirement that a race prepped Jaguar be in attendance. I wish I got a better look at it, but I had my two little 2 year old tornadoes with me.
Edited pics to be up sooner or later from Toronto C&C.
Sharing for those of you who appreciate beautiful cars along with an ugly GT40. Could someone please grant oppo authorship to corkscrew’d? Here is a photo of the ugly GT40 as tribute.
I seem to have the strangest experiences with the admin for my local cars and coffee, however, I always like to work off the assumption that maybe I’m being the asshole. Am I? Let’s dissect.
The weather was really nice, but it was a bit more muted than it would have been. This was undoubtedly because of the Hurricane related gas shortage (aka: media fueled gas hoarding frenzy). All I am saying is that I am glad all my cars and even my bike drink 87 octane! No problems filling them up when they ran empty.
As usual, here is a photodump of things I found interesting at the Charlotte Cars and Coffee today. This is not representative of the actual turn out in any way. I didn’t even take pictures of the supercars this time except the Miura and the SuperLite. The fun question is: Would you rather buy a 2005 Lotus Elise for…
Took these last weekend at a Cars & Coffee. What does Oppo think?
As I was cooking meatloaf the Friday before Cars and Coffee the power nearly went out 2 times. It was my first time cooking meatloaf so it was perfect timing for a thunderstorm. In the end the meatloaf came out great, and the storm dissipated shortly after. The wife was happy, I was happy... But what about cars and…
Went to the Charlotte C&C for the first time in a while, at the new site. It’s a pretty beat site with limited access, but there is plenty of room for cars, and even if there could be larger numbers of cars, the quality and variety is good. Too bad that Jordan, the Slowrunner, and Kona couldn’t make it.
I have dump for a very... “special” car later.
Photoset now live on flickr. (Yes that’s a minipig)
If there is one thing I
hate dislike it’s Texas weather. Especially when the weather gods overthrow the car gods twice in a row. Last month was outright cancelled, this month had an inkling of a sprinkling, so the show went on as scheduled.
I just met a 13 year-old boy who is very into cars. He needs opportunities beyond video games to engage with auto culture, and I want to guide him to visit a Cars and Coffee style meet. I need Oppo hivemind help.
I didn’t take a ton of pictures, I was talking so some interesting people a lot of the time. A lot of cars came, in two phases as well, so it was a lot to see. Three parking lots, I arrived at 7:30 and one lot was almost full, you can see my Z is far from the building where the Starbucks is. July/August is very big. I…
In no particular order, straight from the potatocam. I brought my DSLR, and the light was unpleasant and there were too many people for decent pictures. So here’s some quick iphone shots instead.
