    Had a great time. Lots of fantastic Porsche's; including an authentic Slant Nose, 7 Speed Manual 4S, GT3, and others.

    A 458 Speciale and my 612 held down the fort for Ferrari.

    A fun gathering today on Father's Day. A lot of new attendees and cars. A manual 7-speed Porsche 911, a "special wishes" Porsche 930 Flachbau, a carbon fiber-roofed M3 sedan and this 605 HP Ferrari 458 Speciale. It is a beautiful machine.

    Sad I can't come to this event anymore. Well I can come I just have to park away from everyone.

    Glad to see it is still going on, it is a great event.

    Don't be sad. Of course you can still come! Everyone is welcome - especially previous attendees. : )

    Just follow the parking guidelines. ; )

    Really great turn out today. F-cars were well represented. 328, 512 BBI, Adam's 612 and a lot of interesting German stuff - it was like GT3 central today. Oh, and full rally Lancia Delta Integrale.

    Might actually be able to make this one. Been to Cars & Coffee at the Music Factory a couple times but I've never been to this. From what I gather it is geared towards European cars?

    Yep. Back when Cars and Coffee was a magnet for a55hat5, we started this European-focused gathering. Smaller, milder and more of guys just standing around, looking at and talking about cars.... and drinking coffee. The Porsche crowd kind of embraced it first, but we always have a smattering of F-cars, L-cars, Audis, Aston Martins and Lotus'. Would love to see more F and L cars.

    Sorry Pete, no 917 (that I know of) but Hendrick is alluding to something "cool" being the showroom. So maybe a 918?

    And FYI, I will actually be in Charleston on Sunday AM then heading back from my brother's bachelor party. Sid Bernstein will be the acting Master of Ceremonies in my stead. Super nice guy. Make sure to meet him.

    Thanks Adam. I was going to lift some pics from Facebook, but these will do just fine!
    Not sure how that Cobra got in there, but I've heard no reports of poor behavior on the owner's part. ; )

    A few pics from today. Had around 50 cars with some really neat new attendees. Had a smattering of Italians, with a blue 458 and the Dino GT being the highlight for me. ; ).

    Quick update. Based on the Facebook page sign-ups and warm weather forecast, tomorrow's turn out looks to be "big" by our standards. Probably 50 to 60 European sports cars. The main strip will likely fill up quickly and then we start parking around back and on the edges. I suggest you get there early if you want a spot on the main drag. And I was in contact with an editor from Jalopnik this past week. No guarantees, but he said he would likely be in attendance. Regardless, I look forward to seeing a good representation of the fine automobiles from Maranello, Sant'Agata Bolognese and Turin. ; )

    So last month's turn out was a record. We had 80+ cars and it was a lot of fun. I am including a link to video a local tuner shop (Eurowise) created of the event. Not my choice in music, but no one asked me. ; ) Still a cool video though.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LaUppzNapeQ

    Would be great to have a few more Italians on hand.

    Fun event today. We had around 50ish cars. Mike's absolutely gorgeous '67 Miura made the trek down to Southpark. Scott Jaguar brought a European pre-production version of the new Jaguar SUV. They had to trailer it to the event as it is not authorized on US roads just yet. : ) Interestingly it will be available in a diesel model. This one was a supercharged 6 (I think). Also, I think we had the majority of Lotus owners in Charlotte gathered here today. 5 at one point, with another known Elan owner in attendance in his daily driver.

    Based on the website traffic and Facebook page activity, it looks like record turn out is on hand for this Sunday. Get there early to be able to park in the main line up area.

    So I have been a little remiss in keeping this thread updated. The past 2 months have been pretty busy for me as I continue to work on my lightweight Porsche 911 RSR/ST tribute project. Anyhow, here are few pics fro last month. Really nice turn out, with some really cool variety.

    We had 2 Nobles, a flock of Louses, plenty of Porsche's, vintage BMW's, modern Audi's and a Miura, Countach and a few Ferrari's all making out. The best might of have been the 4500 original mile flying mirror TR. Really, really nice to see it on the road.

    SO August is at the usual spot on Sunday August 21st @ 9:00 AM. Hope to see some of you there.

    Hi all,

    The recent passing of my father has kept me away from updating this thread the last couple months, but the event has been occurring regularly. Hope to see some Maranello beauties on 11/20.

    Sorry about your loss - condolences to you & your family.

    This is a fantastic event for those mainly interested in the European Only cars, with a great location and much more manageable venue.

    Hey..Russell. Good to see your post. I had figured you had set up shop in the South of Spain by now. ; )

    On a related and sad note I feel compelled to mention that there is unfortunately, another passing in our community. Rene Eric Vonwiller passed away this month too. Eric was 59 and a super upbeat guy. Despite his ultimately futile batter with cancer, he was indulging in his passion for European sports cars right up to the end. He had acquired a Lotus Europa about a month prior to his passing and brought it out to his last C&C event. Here is a pic of him with his Noble and he is also in a picture this thread seated behind the same car. He will be missed as will my father.
