Cars & Coffee Montrose Mega Gallery


Okay, I’m a day late and a dollar short with this collection, but I think you’ll find the gallery worth the wait. On Monday’s Last Call we had a shot of a passing mirror, teasing a car that showed up last Saturday to the weekly Cars & Coffee impromptu meeting of classic cars in Montrose Califor-ny-aye.

That car, correctly identified as a Crosley by PreetR34, was the cutest car of the day, but it would have been no matter what the competition.
Other notable cars representing were a Factory Five GTM200, a healthy representation of Ford Model A, and a pair of righteous ’65 289 Cobras. The breadth of cars was amazing- everything from a DKW two stroke (3=6!) to my friend’s Mercedes CLK DTM in which he clocked 212.5 mph on the Hockenheimring.

Check out the sweet patina on the Galaxie 500. That car is powered by a factory 352 V8, and is a daily driver. The two VW buses came together and each had the same “Too Slow? Too Bad” stickers on the back glass. If you’re going to take your own sweet time getting places, you might as well have a sense of humor along the way.
You know that the panoply of iron is pants tent-worthy when you walk by a shiny new Audi R8 and don’t even give it a second glance. That’s because just down the row is a 454 Vette droptop sitting close by a Scuderia.
Two things that Southern California enjoys are the nice weather and a huge assortment of amazing cars. For those of you buried under two feet of snow, enjoy the gallery, and think of spring. It’ll be top-down weather soon enough.
For those of you in LA, the C&C event happens every Saturday morning, starting about 6AM, at the confluence of the 210 and 2 freeways- Verdugo off-ramp from the 2. There’s a Starbucks so you can get some brew, but it’s hard to drink coffee when your jaw keeps dropping at every turn.

    So, I just found out there's an "official" Cars and Coffee Detroit at the MotorCity Casino. It appears it's linked to the group that has tradmarked (or tried to, at least) the name.
    There's rumor of a CnC type even in Birmingham. Once April or May come around and the weather turns, I plan on getting up early on a Saturday morning and hunting it down.

      CnB sounds better, Cars and Beer (or Brefastscotch if you prefer).

        Mmmm…Cars and Brefasscotch. That's the sort of subculture movement I could get behind!

    While '67 Chevys don't do much for me usually (As om-nom-de-plume will likely agree, the '65 was easily the best looking of the 1965-'70 generation.), that wagon has my heart all aflutter. Great pics!

    The Ford GT. That kid in the front seat will never ride in a cooler car. Love the roof bump for the helmet.

    I'm going to brew a big pot of coffee on Saturday, fire up the laptop and spend the morning going through this gallery. Wow.

    I'm intrigued by the immaculate big-block El Camino with the trick suspension and no power brakes. That's a car you could get killed in, in spectacular fashion.

    And no one thinks to call out the beautifully mint Starion? Shame on you, hoon licenses revoked.

    Quite interesting, well I just wanted some songs and got your blog. Thanks for this one mate 😉 I just loved it. An additional comment or feedback which I would like to give is that this theme is quite boring and you need to work on it but everything else I fine.
