Cars and Coffee Austin – July 13, 2014

It was a hot morning in Austin, Texas, but Thing 1 and I headed over to the Oasis for some gratuitous car-spotting. Here’s what we saw…

L1090566

A little Ford GT40 action.

I got a kick out of this Ford DeLuxe.

Oh, ok. I’ll take a little Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG and Aston Martin Vantage action on a Sunday morning. If you insist.

I’m not even a huge fan of the SLS, but it sure is fun to shoot.

L1090603

L1090604

In the words of my old friends, Heart, “Oooooh, Barracuuuuuuda!”

L1090605

L1090606

L1090607

I seem to be smitten with this car…

L1090608

L1090609

L1090610

An Acura NSX. You know, what the Wolf drives.

L1090611

L1090612

L1090613

L1090622

L1090624

L1090632

Hiss! Vipers on the loose.

L1090634

Oh dear.

L1090635

For real.

L1090637

Look! A Thing!

L1090639

Thing 1 liked the Thing. So much so, she jumped in it.

L1090640

Thing 1 will not be invited back to Cars and Coffee.

L1090642

But I hope the Thing is!

L1090643

L1090647

The old Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG used to be my dream car.

L1090649

Because V12 bi-turbo.

L1090650

734 lb-ft of torque, if I recall correctly. I used to have everything memorized on that car. It’s still a beaut, even after being out of production (in this body style) since 2006, and I’d still have one, but I’m thinking the new S63 AMG coupe is looking mighty fine these days, too!

L1090655

And yet, nothing beats a Jaguar E-Type.

L1090656

L1090657

L1090658

L1090659

L1090662

See you next month, Cars and Coffee!
