Ready, Set…

Dear C&C enthusiast,

As we gain a few degrees of momentum with every passing day we are reminded that Spring is just around the next sweeping left or right hander. Get ready to take the snows off and put the sticky tires back on. Remove the car covers, tune your carburetors, polish your chrome and get ready for the fifth year of Caffeine & Carburetors! We have a great lineup planned and our schedule is set (always check the right side of the website for the event dates) … and with a few surprises in store. Great coffee, great drives, great people & great vehicles! Thanks to you and all of your friends, we have grown from the original 30 cars to over 300!

Keep spreading the word, follow us on Facebook and make sure you put April 14th, our first event, on your calendar. Don’t forget that there is plenty of extra parking for visitors in the commuter parking lots.
 

Spread the word,
Todd, Peter & Doug

June Recap & Photos

Thank you all for an outstanding fist half of our C&C season. Our smooth C&C “Parking Engineers” are the BEST! Our attendance has been spectacular, the quality of vehicles is off the charts and you all are just the best. Mother nature has continued to cooperate with our schedule, and we can only hope that the second half of the season will continue our good fortune (someone must have a friend in the business). Our next event is on September 9, 2012 and we hope to see you in attendance. Enjoy those spectacular vehicles and please utilize our Facebook forum to connect with other C&C participants to organize day trips or just a coffee meeting on a Sunday morning. We are all here all summer to help, catch up or just chat. Doug will be at Zumbach’s roasting coffee, Todd will be cutting the cheese at 109 Cheese and Wine and Peter will be talking up a storm and playing great driving music on 95.9 fm to entertain you.

This summer is poised to be a hot one, so keep cool, stick to the back roads and enjoy your summer!

– Doug, Peter & Todd
