The Incredible Cars From The VA Jalopnik Cars And Coffee Meetup

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. A group of Jalopnik and Opposite Lock readers met there this weekend, and we were blown away by the lineup.

I've been to many Cars and Coffee events before, but none like the one at Katie's Coffee in Great Falls. The turnout included a couple E28 M5s, a 1929 Bentley, a Ferrari Testarossa, several Jaguar E-Types, a ton of Porsche 928s (Who knew so many 928s are actually running?) a Ford GTX1, a Lamborghini Countach, a Morgan, and a gorgeous Mercedes 190SL. Those are just the ones I can think of off the top of my head.

Best of all was the car pictured above, an honest-to-God actual 1959 Cooper Formula One car. There's something you don't see every day. Or ever.


Check out these photos from J. David Buerk (aka acousticaperture) below to see some of the action. Thanks again to all the Jalop readers who organized this, starting with Nick (aka JAYZAYEIGHTY), and were able to come out — it was great to meet you all in person. We'll have to do this again very soon.
