It was a beautiful Charlotte morning so I drove the fifty miles to Cars and Cappuccino. Because of the weather, they had the largest turnout I have ever seen. I drove my new, to me, 1973 280SEL 4.5. A fellow with a couple young children in tow parked next to me in a '72 280SE 4.5. The SE is like my car but 4" shorter. Besides having big numbers, there was quite a variety of cars. A good time was had by all!!!

Thanks for coming out guys. I was actually in LA and went to the Petersen Museum this past weekend. Weather was soggy as hell in LA. Actually saw the Alfa Romeo in this month's announcement down in the vault at the museum. Pretty cool. Soory I missed such a great turnout. Here are some more pics on a local shooter's blog.

Wish I could be there, but running the Tobacco Road Marathon in Raleigh that morning.

Hope you all have a great time and look forward to being there in April.

Is there one scheduled for April yet? My dad is in town next weekend and would undoubtedly enjoy this immensely.

Yes, but we are delayed a week. How long is Pop staying?

He will be gone by 4/18. One of these times, he will manage to catch a show in the Charlotte area...

***LOCATION CHANGE***

Dynamic Auto Tune - 8516 Monroe Road

Why? Ask the 'vette driver who felt compelled to drive like an asshat upon exit from last month's event. Ask the Benz driver who thought it would be cool to repeatedly rev his motor near the apartments. Sigh; this is why we can't have nice things.

Did the Vette and Benz have bumper stickers that said "My Other Car is a Mustang"?

The older I get the more I hate other people.

Hope to see you this weekend after a long lay out.

Have you been officially banned from that location or is this just a "cool down" period?

Well, the weather is making us cancel the event. Might be for the best so we can regroup and figure out our next move. We've gotten a few offers of other venues, but we are still in talks with the Foxcroft folks.

Russell, sorry we don't get a chance to meet up. Hopefully next month.

Sorry, must have been my fault - I polished up the old Mercedes yesterday with hopes of attending today!

Welcome to Michael's and my madding world of herding cats at car events. As you know Cars and Coffee and our 900+ potential ways to get booted every week has provide us the opportunity to move again. It is hard to find a place and easy to loose it. Very frustrating given the work it takes to secure and insure the location.

From the Facebook page:

Sorry about the rather vague references to this month's event and thanks for your patience, but a new - and thankfully improved - location is on the horizon for Cars and Cappuccino. We'll share more details very soon, once a few small final details have been ironed out. Just know that better seating, facilities and food are part of the new more "significant-other-friendly" location. So as of this week, the Foxcroft location is no longer the official gathering location for Cars and Cappuccino.
The new location is in the Myers Park area of Charlotte. It was secured by two Cars and Cappuccino "regulars" late last week during a meeting with both restaurant and property management. As you might imagine, getting an official "OK" to host a car gathering these days is not as easy as it once was. Even for more mellow and mature gathering like Cars and Cappuccino.
And as some of you know, Cars and Cappuccino has been a labor of love for several of us and we've been coming out of pocket for most of these last 5+ years to run the website and cover other costs. Going forward we'll have some increased costs for hosting the event and that means some changes for our sponsors and attendees. We've been brainstorming among ourselves to come up with ways to create win-win situations regarding support. We'll share more details on those in the coming days too.
Again, thanks for your continued patience about the new location and also for everyone's past and future support. And thanks to Caribou Coffee and Foxcroft Shopping Center for the hospitality and memories. Cars and Cappuccino had a nice long run there - almost 4 years. But better things are now in the future for Cars and Cappuccino. ; ).

So the time has come to take Cars and Cappuccino in a more private direction. For those of you in the Charlotte area that are "regulars" (or think you might want to become one), please PM me with the following information:

1) Your name
2) Your email address
3) The European car you typically bring to the Cars and Cappuccino events.

We need this information to further develop our plans for the new version of the event. We won't be sharing it with anybody else.

Thanks.
