After a 5:30am wake-up this morning, I attended the first annual DC Cars & Coffee Jalopnik meet. Hopefully the first of many local events the Oppo crew can attend together, it was definitely a good morning.
I arrived with kids in tow a few minutes after 7am and found Mr. Patrick George wandering around looking at the morning's turnout, which was pretty solid.
Below are some of the cars that made it out, anything from new Italian super/hyper cars to old American muscle and other random and interesting automobiles. I'm not sure who all showed up, I know I spoke to DC Auto Geek Juan Barnett, Jagvar (sans shoes), Slowmaro, and several other folks. There should be a few cameras with group pictures on them, we'll tag ourselves as they get posted I'm sure.
Picture credit on these is "thedriver" and "thedriver jr" who is 9. Some strange and wonderful angles, most of which are his.
Fisker Karma heading out. Silently. Bankrupty.
My son's BBS pic, great shot.
Another of his, "thedriverbait".
Patrick George's shoes. Seriously. Think this one was my daughter's.
Very loud R8 driving out.
C3 V ette
LS powered FD RX-7. "Rotorless" was the plate.
Awesome vintage racer.
$kaybait. The only GT was a freakin GTX-1! My favorite car of the show.
Vanquish heading out.
Odd Odd Odd C6-based something or other.
Here it is from behind. Front said "N2A" meaning "No two alike".
And then Richard Hammond arrived in his wooden car.
The really mini Mini Cooper.
Nice clean modified Mustang.
Neat little kart, one of my son's favorites.
Pretty Ferrari, you don't see enough white Ferraris outside of Chris Evan's garage.
DC Auto Geek Juan Barnett's new SRT-8 Grand Cherokee. Badass.
Wooden, and sort of crosseyed Morgan. But awesome nevertheless.
Patrick checking out the "N2A"
Bedroom poster material. The Countach. The one on my wall was red when I was 9.
The non rotary FD again. Note cool plate.
The newest Jaaaaag. So pretty in person.
Patrick George's loaner, the new ATS. Great looking car, Cadillac did this one right. Look forward to the review.
And finally the car I hope to buy in the not-so-distant-future.
EDIT: per request, some details on the racer:
