    Hi,

    The 'Tehran Cafe Racers', our "Car Guy Lunch Group" just celebrated its one year anniversary right before Ramadan. The group, which is backed by the Classic Car Committee of the Iranian Automobile Federation,and affiliated with the Sarasota Cafe Racers Group (founded by Marty Schorr of Iso -Motion fame) provides classic owners the opportunity to meet up with their fellow enthusiasts for lunch. Lunches are usually preceded by a road trip or track day with the main purpose being to provide owners an opportunity/excuse to bring out their cars. You can get the full story of the one year celebration at www.CarGuyChronicles.com. With over 41cars participating we had a full gamut ranging from an original Baldwin Motion Camaro to a Maserati Khamsin and everything in between from a Porsche 356 to Lancia Beta Spyder, not to mention a Ford Skyliner, and a broad array of Bimmers and Mercs including a 300sl. I hope you enjoy the pics. Photo's are courtesy of Tehran Cafe Racer Keyvan Moradi.

    Hi Guys,

    Just had another Cafe Racer road trip / lunch on October 13. Not too many Italian cars, but we had another eclectic mix ranging from a 911 Carerra to an Olds Cutlass convertible. We started the morning gathering at the Darabad Zoo before heading off to the city of Fasham, a forty minute drive from Tehran.

    Enjoy !

    On the road to Fasham. One passerby got a little over exuberant when seeing this Alfa. A bit busy. Will post some more pics shortly.

    Cheers !

    Dear Pav,

    Thanx for the compliment. Here is an original 131 Abarth that joined us. In front of it are a LT-1 engine SS (original twelve bolt rear end) a 220 se and a 180 Ponton. Here we are entering the city of Lavasan on our way to Fasham. Again thanx to Cafe Racer Keyvan Moradi for the pictures.

    Regards,

    Hi guys,

    The October Cafe Race was just covered in detail by Marty Schorr at the site www.carguychronicles.com. I hope you guys enjoy it. Here of the cars parked across the street from the restaurant. You can see everything from a original Baldwin Motion Phase III Camaro, a 442 convertible to a 6.3 and a 6.9 liter Mercedes parked side by side.

    Best Wishes

    Hi,

    On November 24, 2011 Tehran Cafe Racers had its second track day. We had a number of newbies, including this 308 GTB and a 930 Turbo Targa (which I understand is pretty rare). I hope you enjoy the pics. I have also added a couple of photo's from our earlier track day.

    Happy 2012

    Hi,

    In addition to the Ferrari, this 930 Turbo Targa was one of our newbies. I had the pleasure of driving it. Simply unbelievable.

    Enjoy,

    Khamsin!! back when Maseratis were Masers.. Merak..Bora.. etc.. I've always thought that if you broke one of those khamsin glass tailgates, you had to pretty much hand your checkbook to a glazier... Love the black Mustang..
