Cars and Coffee Austin – February 8, 2015

Okay, enough sad! Let’s get back to happy, aka Cars and Coffee, from two weeks ago. Spyker C8 Spyder McLaren P1 Scenes And then the Italians took over… Thank you for your indulgence. Never look a Camaro directly in the eye. My favorite car there, of course. The SRT Viper racer.

Too busy to talk! But feast your eyes upon these…

Cars and Coffee Austin – August 10, 2014

Ah, Cars and Coffee. The only Sunday of the month where I cheerfully rise “early.” Sunday mornings have been scorchers around here lately, but that’s nothing to a true car fan. Just add a little strategic hydration, and you are good to go. I must say, I get a kick out of all the 20-something […]

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… 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 […]

I’m in Galveston for the next several days and looking forward to some good car spotting. I’ve already seen a […]

Cars and Coffee Austin – May 18, 2014

Today was a beautiful day for a little driving and car ogling, and I made the most of it. Up early (for me), camera in hand, I headed off to Cars and Coffee for a sensory feast. There was a great mix of cars today – classic, modern, used, new, exotic, exotic in a painful […]

Damn You, Sinkhole!

What a bizarre story. A sinkhole opened under the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky in the early-morning hours today, swallowing eight Corvettes. Perhaps it’s bad of me to say, but I was relieved to read that only one truly old Corvette, a 1962 C1 (first generation; the brand-new 2014 is a C7), was […]

Cars and Coffee Austin – February 9, 2014

Cars and Coffee – possibly the greatest concept in the history of time. And I don’t even like coffee. It’s a pretty basic idea – get a bunch of cars and car enthusiasts together for a laid-back, unofficial car show. The event, which originated in California (I think?), is actually franchised out to various locations, […]
