Another Cars & Coffee in Cary–What a turn-out.

The weather was just great.  I arrived about nine in the morning and the sun was still low, but the temperature was just perfect and the crowds were huge.  What used to fit in a single parking lot is now packing tow full lots.  As some car owners decide to leave after an hour or two several new people with their cars show up looking for a place to park.

There are so many cars that I won’t be able to show you but just a few of what I consider choice examples.

As I wandered around I saw that people were clustering around this car and moved in to get some clear shots of it.

P1140900

It was an all steel bodied tribute to classical hot rodding.  What a beauty!

And here was this person’s 1957 Chevy in black and chrome:

Just look at some of the details of this other black Chevy:

Then I came across a 1969 Lotus Europa.  This car was such an amazing vehicle when it came out and it still pulls the looks.

P1140849

It is mid-engine and based on the Lotus Formula One cars of the day.

Now for a little contrast, here is a more contemporary Lotus Elise.

Just when you thought you had seen every hot Porsche this one showed up.  What a beast!

Then there were a multitude of Toyota Supras.  These cars had turbo straight six engines, that when tuned could put out 1000 hp and still be street-able.

P1140897

P1140860

There was a vintage military Jeep…

Finally a beautiful example of the first BMW M3 – an E30.

I’m not sure if there will be another one of these in November so it may be the last one of the year.

    Whoa, that Lotus! Clean lines, gorgeous flow – reminds me of a 2nd gen Dodge Viper GTS, only sleeker. Did you get to hear the Porsche fire up?
