Cars and Coffee are shows that take place world wide. I’ve been to the Dallas one twice and it has been a treat both times. Last weekend I got a little late start and didn’t arrive until around 9:30 AM and a lot of the cars had already started to leave. There is no charge to show your car or be a spectator, so look them up and get out as often as you can. The Dallas show is actually held at Classic BMW in Plano. I don’t know how the other Cars and Coffee gatherings are around the world, but in Plano there are all kinds of cars from 60’s Volkswagens to a Lamborghini Aventador and everything in between.
Because I was late and the cars were already starting to leave I got to listen to some of the best engine sounds as the V10’s and V12’s were pulling out of the lot and putting on their own show for us spectators.
I ran into Val Herrera with his Alfa GTV6 Callaway and got to talk to him for a bit about the history and acquisition of the car. Val does great work and takes a lot of pride in his cars.
There were several exotic cars; besides the Aventador there was a pair of yellow Lamborghini Gallardos, a Ferrari F430, a Jaguar F Type, an Audi R8 V10, and a McLaren 650S Spider plus a handful of more common exotics like a Lotus Elise and a Ferrari 328.
Enjoy the pics and I’ll post more on Instagram or the CarReads.com Facebook page.
