Cars and Coffee Season Slows Down

On Saturday, Oct 7 the final Cars & Coffee at First & Main in Colorado Springs was held with the host club being the Alpine Region of the Porsche Club of America with many new and older Porsches on display. Most notable to Mary and I were a pristine, 100-point Concours-quality Speedster and a lovingly restored Sand Beige 1966 Porsche 911, whose owner told us a great story on how the car came to painted that color. It is one of the many reasons that I love Cars & Coffee.



The highlight for Mary was when she was parking her 2006 Mercedes Benz SLK 350 and one of the organizers asked—he practically demanded—that she move the car into the show area. Fortunately we had recently cleaned the car and its silver paint sparkled in the dappled sunlight. WE were both surprised that people not only liked the car but actually took photographs.

On the other hand, we didn’t take many pictures but Mary brought her Nikon DSLR and had fun making pictures, including the one of me talking to the owner of a pristine Datsun 1600 roadster.

The organizers of the First & Main Cars and Coffee event have not announced their schedule for 2018 but as soon as it’s available I’ll post it here. Mary and I hope to see you there next year, but you can join us at the Second Tuesday Cars and Coffee that are sponsored by the Vehicle Vault and held in Parker, CO. The next one is this Saturday October 14 and we hope to see you there.
