Caffeine & Carburetors Events

Caffeine & Carburetors Events Caffeine & Carburetors is a gathering of automotive enthusiasts. We meet at Caffeine & Carburetors Cafe in New Canaan, CT about four times a year to enjoy our rides and share them with like-minded gear heads hiding in and around Connecticut and New York.

We have a tendency to lean toward sports cars, with the occasional Model A or 1920′s Rolls Royce, but our emphasis is on foreign sports cars. We enjoy all vehicles and there are no sponsorships or awards.

Doug Zumbach began hosting these gatherings in 1995. These Sundays start around 8 am to gather and enjoy a cup of coffee followed by a leisurely drive through the countryside, drawing town residents and families (and their dogs!) as well as visitors from neighboring municipalities and states to enjoy the cars as well as the charm of New Canaan and its restaurants and shops.

Caffeine and Carburetors is a way to indulge the gear head in all of us. Being a gathering and not a juried event, there is no registration, and events are free for all.
