September 2011 Recap & Photos

Thank you all for coming out and enjoying the amazing cars, people and weather!  Thank you to Mercedes Benz for bringing out the Roadster and also the owner of the beautiful 1955 Gullwing. Many of us migrated over to the Fairfield Concours and enjoyed some special parking privileges and more great cars and bikes, while others just drove and got some lunch. No matter what your preference, we are so glad you came. Our next event is coming up soon on October 9 and we look forward to seeing everyone. Keep spreading the word and join our Facebook page!

A Record Turnout for April

Our first gathering of the 2011 season of Caffeine & Carburetors was the most widely-participated event to-date with over 140 cars, motorcycles and trucks in attendance! Thank you to all who came out and to the many local businesses who helped to support the event on an overcast but dry day.  We had a some very significant cars show up, including a Jaguar XJ 220, a Porsche 959, Lamborghini Miura, AC Bristol, a Buick Road Master Woody and a Ferrari Lusso just to scratch the surface. Here are just a few photos, with many more galleries and video to come, so stay tuned.

In addition to copious amounts of Zumbach’s Gourmet coffee, cupcakes were provided by The Cakebox in Ridgefield, a wine and cheese basket by 109 Cheese & Wine was raffled off along with a gift certificate for an oil change and a dry cleaning gift certificate from New Canaan Dry Cleaners.

See you on May 22!
