Here in Memphis, we have a relatively tiny monthly Cars and Coffee. It's nice, but it's nowhere near as big as our weekly Thursday night cruise. We've had this cruise at least since 2004, but this year it has really taken off - it's become THE place to be if you have a cool car. The retired street rodders and the young ricers co-exist in the same place and everyone gets along. There's a level of respect and comradery between the two extremes that I haven't really seen anywhere else; we're all there because we love cars, simple as that. And the "organizers" (it's really not organized at all, which is glorious) say this year we're gonna be filling this parking lot until there's icicles out. Which, being in Memphis, means we're gonna go all winter long!
Anyway, here's some pics from this week's. I only got a few as I was getting lots of conversation about my car. Made a few new friends and that in itself is the best reason to go every week.
First C7 I've seen in person. I think the styling works much, much better in person than in photographs.
I geeked out over this more than the C7
67 Dart GT. I absolutely love this car, but the owner was more interested in mine than talking about his! Maybe next time I see him I'll ask if he wants to trade...
And here's some Cars and Coffee pics. I got to walk around it a bit more, since no one paid much attention to my car at all. The August one was bigger, but the September one was up against another show that same day and most folks seemed to have gone to that one.
Fiesta ST brought out by a Ford dealer, with a pair of Focus STs brought by their owners.
