Caffeine & Carburetors | November 2010

A cold crisp day welcomed an almost record showing of over 120 cars marking our final Caffeine & Carburetors gathering of the year on November 7.  Our rally coordinator Peter Bush narrated much of the morning’s gathering as visitors fueled up on cups of Zumbach’s coffee and announced the winnter of a Monticello Motor Club prize raffled off to one very pleased C & C frequent visitor. A big thank you to Sarah and Bernard of Bernard’s Restaurant for providing the libations for our special pit stop which proved a warm way to end our year. More photos and video to come, for now, enjoy our slideshow.

Our final Caffeine & Carburetors gathering of the season on Sunday, November 7 will feature a special pit stop in Ridgefield for libations and snacks in front of a bonfire at Bernard’s Restaurant! For full details of the event, read our full C & C schedule.
