K: I only have two real hobbies....books, coffee, and chocolate.
ME: Wha....What? (She's like a female Yogi Berra!)
I suspected the January Cars and Coffee wouldn't be that great as the weather wasn't, either. The temp was only in the 30's, but the wind was really kicking up making it pretty miserable. I managed to stay warm enough, but I think my eyeballs are windburned. Ouch!
I did manage to see well enough to appreciate this beautiful Morgan, though. It's even the right color (IMO) for an English sports car...British Racing Green.
While it wasn't cherry, and in fact looked to have been "well enjoyed", I still like this era Porsche 911.
A badge on the rear identified this car as a proud member of the "Porsche 356 Tub Club". He/she also appears to do a lot of vintage racing.
This one is for you, Doug. As I recall you liked the Porsche 968.
The agony and the ecstasy....those nasty 1970-ish government mandated bumpers on an otherwise very nice BMW 2002.
There seemed to be a lot of the "boy racer" types out today.
I'll at least give this Mazda owner some style points.
No points, though, for this VeeDub refugee from the frozen tundra, aka Canada. It must have been a slow trip south, what with those tires rubbing the inside of the fender wells like that.
This little egg-looking thing is winning a lot of praise from the automotive press these days. It's a ST model Ford....umm...."egg-looking thing".
A slick '56 Cheeeevy.
And a '57 from my yout, too.
'57 was a good year for Thunderbirds also.
I'm guessing this Lamborghini Murcielago owner, billing himself as "the Violin Guy", is writing off his car as a business expense. That, or he's the ultimate narcissist.
There are always a lot of photographers at Cars and Coffee, for obvious reason. This guy, however, had the coolest set up I've seen yet. He could raise and lower his camera and still maintain the perfect angle to view his subject. A definite "Big Boy Toy".
You've heard of "chick cars"? This lady wore her "chick-ness" loud and proud!
Which begs the question....why do some model cars, like this BMW Z3, get a reputation for being a "chick car"? Another is a Mazda Miata. Why? What is it about a car that makes it a chick car? Anybody....?
That's my take on Cars and Coffee for this month. :)
