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.

As always Doug served up his amazing coffee and Peter Bush rocked the PA System and the rally course. About 45 cars (and one eager dog) participated in the rally. If you have photos or stories to share, please visit our Facebook page and share them with our growing community.

See you on May 22!

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.

Caffeine & Carburetors | October 2010

A beautiful and brisk fall morning set the scene for yet another great Caffeine & Carburetors rally on October 17, 2010.

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
