What is the sound of one piston slapping?

Groundhog Day Cars and Coffee, doing it all over again . . . but this time it’s different! In a new venue, much more pleasant, with more space. And the turnout was pretty much the best variety, quality and quantity of cars that I can recall. And this is in February, so I’m hopeful that it will continue to thrive.

Because of the quantity I did not take photos of everything, or even everything that interested me, so what follows is a small selection. I totally ignored the massive Tesla presence (with banners and dealer reps, even).

Car of the show for me (because it was clearly a labor of love that was pretty bonkers) was the “Big Gulp” supercharged NB Miata.
