417 Coffee & Cars – 2015 Wrap-up


Wrapping up the last 417 Coffee 7 Cars of the season. Today, we’ll look at some of the best cars from the event, in no particular order.

The great thing about Coffee & Cars is that any car is welcome, no matter what it is. It’s not a car show, so there are no rules, no registration, no judges, and no pressure. Some guys treat it like a show & shine, while others just shoot the breeze over a cup of coffee. Everyone is happy.


For example: about 20 feet away from this Volksrod (only $3000, by the way), a pair of Lamborghini Gallardos were being ogled by a bunch of boys. As they say, it takes all kinds.


I couldn’t get enough of this 1955 Ford Fairlane Crown Victoria, with its chrome accents everywhere and the basket handle across the top. As I recall, this model had a 3-speed column shift transmission behind that big 272 ci V8 engine. It must be a blast to drive.


A little something for the Miata fans among us; this one’s for you. You are welcome. It’s hard to tell from this picture, but almost every piece of sheet metal shows some wear & tear, which tells me this car has been enjoyed for a long time. May it ever be thus.


As I learned from longrooffan, the best cars at car shows sometimes aren’t even part of the show. This 1993 Accord SE sedan was sitting next to another well-built sedan, and it was a real gem with alloy wheels, a sunroof, and body colored bumpers. The 4th generation Accord is one the best Accords ever made, in my humble opinion. Honda really knew how to make a good car back then.

That’s it for 417 Coffee & Cars 2015. Big thanks for the organizers for putting it on, the local church for hosting, and to everyone who brings out their cars. Which cars stand out to you? Let us know in the comments.

      That’s what I said!

      • Vairship

        It’s in incredible shape. Someone clearly loves that car! May it stay on the road forever.

    The image of the Beetle – what’s going on with that Lincoln in the background?

    • Are you referring to the split-level nature of the parking lot or to the peeling paint and/or item sitting on the trunk lid? If you click on the photo you can reach the full-resolution version which makes both issues easier to see.

        I see it now. I thought there was a tear in the Matrix.

          Yep, the back lot is on a slope, while the front is mostly at grade.

        • Holy hell, this same thing confused my whiskey-ridden brain too. Had horror thoughts of it being a sinkhole…
