    Cars & Coffee - Indianapolis

    Weekly get together of mixed marque sports cars. Show up when you can and meet some new folks with a like passion for cars.

    Saturdays at 10:00AM

    Paradise Bakery
    9510 A N. Meridian Street
    Indianapolis, IN, 46260
    Phone: 317/581-9500

    Hours: 6:30am - 9pm Mon - Fri; 7:30am - 8pm Sun
    Breakfast Served: 6:30 - 11am Mon - Sat; 8 - 11am Sun


    Just south of I-465 on Meridian, westside of the road.

    New location with outside seating, good coffee, yummy food and easy access to I-465 makes it a great location for a meeting spot prior to a cruise!

    Everyone is welcome to swing by and say hello. Get the word out to fellow car nuts and let's see turn this into a quality get together.

    We hope to be working with the GM of the place to let us block off a section of his parking lot. If not, there is a large parking lot immediately next door that isn't used in the morning.

    I'm going to make this a "Sticky" for a couple weeks to help 'jump start' this Indy Saturday gathering. I'm not a fan of multiple "Sticky" threads. In fact, its generally frowned upon, but there is quite a bit of interest in getting a REAL 'coffee & cars' going in Indy and since this Saturday is looking GORGEOUS....here it is...
    After I 'unstick' this thread, feel free to BUMP it frequently to keep it fresh.

    Weather is going to be amazing this weekend.

    My engine is almost back together, but not enough to put back in the car. Looks like the clutch was just getting down to the rivets. So once again, I'll be there without my toy.

    Outstanding turnout! Vettes, Pontiac GTO, Acura's, Lotus, Aston Martin, Pantera, BMW, Ferrari 365 GT4, Ferrari 599, and of course my little 308. I probably missed a few. Took pictures and will try to post later. Oh, as I was pulling out a 430 Spider was driving by but I am not sure if he pulled in.

    At least 3 attendees happened to be driving by and stopped to see what was going on.

    Best C & C ever - in my opinion. Best location.

    Jim...you missed a great day.

    The 430 went to the gas station, but didn't stop by. Saw another Lotus 7, Birken I think, drove past, but didn't stop.

    That DB9 is one seriously sexy car.
    Duz185...you know I love your Pantera, but I think you now have competition for my heart with that DB9.

    We had a guy from Cinci drive over in a supercharged NSX. It had just come out of a paint booth about a week ago and was looking sharp.

    The new location is a hit with everyone. With word getting out and all the folks expressing interest in getting something like this together to bring the community together, I see this only growing.

    Glad to hear you guys had a nice turn out. I'd like to join in and meet some other car nuts, but busy as crap right now at the shop.
    I'll try to make it sometime as long as you guys don't mind a Jag STR 4 door showing up!
    As I said before on another thread, I've found an extremely cool road down here by Brookville Lake. I'd like to organize a drive, just have to work out the route a little more if anyone's interested later on.

    I don't think I can hotlink to pics since I'm not a paying member on this site.

    Great shots Bill! I love the green Ferrari. Front engine 12 cyl touring cars are soooo quintisential Ferrari. M. Bayer (on this site in the vintage section, also bought our 67 330 GT) has a blue one with a body colored nose and that really cleans up the lines.

    Me too!

    This has to be one of my busiest springs ever.

    I did get an hour Sat eve to work on balancing my carbs and start to get it back together from setting up my variable pressure return regulator fuel system... :)
    1 mile test run is all I've done so far!

    Wanted to bump this thread for the weekend. At some point I'm going to take it off "Sticky" so you guys will have to bump it up to give it attention after that. I hope having it at the top has helped get the awareness out!
    I won't be down this weekend or next, but maybe after that....

    Morning weather was not looking friendly and that lead to a light turnout. Weather improved quickly, so those in doubt missed a pleasant morning.

    A couple of us headed out to ORP for the big SCCA Regional on the road course. Lots of race cars of all classes.

    Later in the day, I spotted all sorts of cars out and about. We'll hope for better weather next time.

    I know several folks that normally show up were doing the Mini. I suppose with all the Speedway activities, peoiple will be distractedt this month. Too much to do.

    This coming Satruday is Pole Day out at the Speedway. I hope to stop by for a few on my way to the track.

    SATURDAY, MAY 9TH!

    Weather is looking to be nice with a high of 69 degrees.


    I plan on stopping by prior to heading to the Speedway for Pole Day! And before anyone asks....No, I did not finish the engine rebuild, but I did get a lot of yardwork and other things done...and yes, you are of course in justified in giving me additional grief Sat for not having the car ready this weekend as promised.

    We'll be heading down to the track for Pole Day before C & C so we'll have to miss this week. I would have totally enjoyed giving you crap about the Z not being fixed - post pictures of your yard at least to show the fruits of your labor!

    Oh, no one wants to look at, or smell, 10-12 yards of freshly spread mulch, so no yard pics. LOL!

    I'll PM you my cell. If you get my VM, don't worry, I'll be listening to the scanner. I'll call back after I figure out the cell technology. LOL!

    Left the house in a mild rain, but hopeful that 2 hrs north it would be dry. Well, so much for hopeful...
    A few brave souls anyway. Oh, also, the 308 started running on 4 cylinders Thursday, so Mrs SMS said we'll just take her 4 cyl. :)
    A few cruised thru to look, and a 348 drove by. Later in the day it was beautiful, dry and sunny, just a few hours late.

    Weather is looking to be perfect this coming weekend. We should work to get a really nice turnout for this one.

    I dropped the motor back in my car today. Just a few more things to do tomorrow and I'll turn the key and see what happens. Looking good for being able to DRIVE it to C&C this weekend!!! WoooHooo!
