Cars at Cars & Coffee

We might see some cool cars at our local C&C. Here's a thread where we can post some of the better ones. My only request is to use the 'new' way to attach so we don't have the over-sized pics that ruin a thread. Over-sized pics = a buck in the swear jar.

I wanted to start this thread last yr but got busy with selling cars. Last night's Barrett-Jackson prompted me to start it now. The green Ford GT is from Omaha and was at a local C&C in June 2018. It sold last night for nearly $1.1mil. He owns a 918 too and I wouldn't be surprised if that was his at B-J. But it didn't meet reserve so it didn't sell.

Those Ford GTs are truly awesome cars, with incredible presence. Every year I go to the Rolex 24 hour race at Daytona, and I have taken tons of pictures of the cars on track. It seems nearly impossible to get a bad shot of a Ford GT!

Thanks for sharing the pictures, husker!

We once had one of them oil down 4.5 miles of racetrack.... for 3 laps before he noticed.... some sort v of silicone- based transmission fluid..... making for a 3- hour cleanup.... and I don't really look at them the same way since then.

Now that C&C season is starting back up, thought I'd pull this thread out of mothballs.

I attended my 1st C&C this morning. Lots of different / new cars than from previous yrs. Unfortunately, one of the newbies was this disaster:





I think the owner was color blind because he had cherry red metallic next to the orange wing. And the dark color wasn't black but a root beer metallic.



I wonder if The King had to hold his nose when he sign it? The little girl in the background looks a bit nauseous.

Please do better than that with your selections. Now I can delete this abortion from my phone.

Well, I don't give a hoot what the colors are, it's still a bad-ass car. Thanks for sharing.

We get some fancy cars at our local Cars & Coffee

I haven't been to any this year due to the shutdown, but we get some fancy and pricey cars at our local Cars & Coffee. I often wonder if some of the owners of these cars do much with them besides going to car shows. The pictures aren't great as I stop in to visit these while out riding my bike and am straddling my bike with bike shoes with cleats. The pictures are right side up on my PC so I hope they come out that way here. Here are a few samples

Alfa Romeo Montreal


Mercedes 300 SL Gullwing and Roadster


Ferrari La Ferrari?




This is a very rare and expensive Maserati MC12 built for GT Racing. I thought it was a well finished kit car until I saw it up close and then looked it up when I got home. Not my cup of tea





A genuine Shelby AC Cobra



A Lancia Delta Integrale



A Ferrari F50

Cool cars, Paul. But no pics of the Veyron?

Someone in OMA has a Senna McLaren. I'll try to get a pic of it next wk at the monthly C&C.

I guess I’m not a fan! I actually saw another one driving today, probably out for the Cars & Coffee I couldn’t attend, with the top off and its rear spoiler a few feet in the air but couldn’t get my phone out in time. The best car I’ve ever seen st a local event was an honest to god genuine street legal D Type Jaguar about 25 years ago, before smart phones!

That's not a LaFerrari, that's an Enzo.

And some of us drive our exotics very regularly. ;-) but you're right: there's a segment who don't, and that's a shame. I always hate seeing a car owned for 3 years with less than 2000 miles in that time, for instance.

Thanks for the clarification on the Enzo! in my area I think the Enzo, MC12, Bugattis and other really high end supercars donít get out very much. Certainly not to a track day or an autocross which is too bad. The more common Ferraris, McClarens, Lamborghinis, etc are spotted out on weekdays and in rush hour.

Where are you located?
I've noticed that my neighborhood isn't as excited any more when they see mine, haha.
It seems some of the excitement is worn down when we see them every day. Which is to be expected.

I guess there needs to be a balance between driving them, but keeping them special.

I haven't found that yet.

I'm in Bergen County, New Jersey. If you look on Facebook for Bergen County Cars and Caffe you'll see everything that shows up to their events. As long as you're excited every time you see and drive your car that's all that matters!
