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.

Many familiar faces and automobiles found their way to New Canaan, as well as some new friends and their machines. Among the new, we were thrilled to see an impeccable Sunbeam Tiger, an Austin Healey 100/4 Le Mans and not one, but TWO original Shelby Cobras.

A few special guests joined us including Cecelia Smith of Patch.com who shot video footage of the morning. Read more to view the video or visit Patch.com, here: Read more
