The Five Types of Car Meets

Well folks, it's car meet/car show time again. East Coasters are remembering what decent weather feels like and Southern California has been rescued from a freezing, 68 degree Spring and is currently sitting at a balmy 80. This means that enthusiasts are once again free to enjoy their machines without having to break… » 6/09/14 9:18am 6/09/14 9:18am

Cars and Coffee Portland 4/13/14

Today had to be the biggest turnout to C&C I've ever been to. The entire parking lot was full of cars. Some highlights included a Corvette car club, custom Ford show car, 200,000+ miles Chevy truck in perfect condition, Ferrari F12, and some sort of home made racecar. Enjoy this huge gallery!

Volkswagen XL1 At Katie's Cars And Coffee: December 7th, 2013

Labor Day Irvine C&C Part 1 - The Nissan Heritage Collection

Last week my girlfriend sent me a text and said we should go to Cars and Coffee. We usually try to make it out on the holiday weekends since there's always a great turnout.

Well okay, the Esprit wasn't nearly as resilient or successful of a sports car as the 911 is, but that's not going to stop me… » 9/05/13 10:12pm 9/05/13 10:12pm

If you're in the D.C./Maryland/Virginia area and you like cars (of course you like cars, that's why you're here, right?) then you owe it to yourself to check out Katie's Cars and Coffee.
