Cars and Coffee is a relatively new meet in the Sydney car scene, despite their fresh face, they still manage to crack a solid turnout to their events, the first of 2016 last weekend was no exception. Cars and Coffee gives your Sunday coffee meet up a new meaning. The idea behind this event is simple, hang out with mates to a coffee harbourside on a Sunday morning, surrounded by beautiful cars, all ages, origins and models.
You know you’re in for a good day when one of the first cars you bump into is 5enna. This is still one of my favourite cars in Sydney’s car community, It’s so clean for it’s age. Look out in the near future for a feature on Speed Nation… 😉
I stumbled across this Cobra, nestled away in the long grass in it’s racing attire. Some cars don’t need to be in plain sight for attention, they create their own attention.
Every time I see an open wheeler I start to dream a little, could I get my hands on one? Probably not any time soon, right. But whats not to love about this, featuring one of the cleanest and functional cockpits I have seen in a long time.
At a lot of events like these, you tend to hear cars before you see them; this mustang was no exception. It was obvious some kind of meanie was around the corner its fair to say that I was shocked when this rolled in.
Higher class meets such as Cars and Coffee, tend to draw the attention of some crazy cars including this Aspira f620. Previous to Cars and Coffee I had never heard or known of Aspira; I’m hopeful this isn’t the last time I see this car either.
As a wide-body Porsche fan boy, this RWB looking masterpiece was certainly a highlight. Paint so clean you can clearly see your own reflection….. why not.
Canary yellow certainly doesn’t suit many cars, the Ford GT is an exception. The ford GT is a car that I often see people of all ages drawn towards, whether it be because it was the car their dad owned when they were a kid or just because it looks damn cool.
When your car looks like a fighter jet, interior and all, you deserve a dash to suit.
Unfortunately the prior days of torrential rain made it difficult for some cars to even get into the event, leaving them no option to leave pretty quickly. On these occasions manpower works much better than horsepower.
Early departures make for the perfect excuse to pull as hard as possible up a blind hill right? There was zero disappointment and smiles on every face in the near vicinity.
As I walked back down to the water a crowd was forming around one particular car, I rushed to investigate.
I was greeted by a clubsport having a date for one in a romantic little puddle. Instructions were yelled from the crowd although confused and contradicted, the boys pulled through and got their pride out after 3 attempts.
Unfortunately many abandoned the idea with fear of their own toys getting stuck. The paddock was looking rather derelict a few hours in. Despite the conditions, a good day was had by most. I’m keen to make it down to the next Cars and Coffee meet, weather permitting.
