With the demise of Cars and Coffee the search for a great show has come to an end. I found it 3 months ago, just a few miles further down the road from the old Cars and Coffee location and it is named Cars and Cantina (formerly known as Cantina and Cars). This was the 3rd time I went and it has set the bar to the…
I had been longing to review one of these for a while, ever since they came out with them. And I finally got the chance to be behind the wheel of one. I liked the ST, but the RS really is where it’s at.
I ended up going to Cantina and Cars about an hour late because of Cars and Coffee. I was greeted by the Pagani Huayra in the main lot, but the crowd that was around it destroyed any notion of plopping down my slider rig and getting an uninterrupted shot.
At least RIP at Classic BMW in Plano, TX. A place Cars and Coffee Dallas called home for 9 years. A place where I filmed at for practically 4 years straight. It went out with a bang, but all the hypercars did not make it in my video. The ones I haven’t shot were already gone (the Senna, Veyron and Pagani Huayra). The…
My daughter saw this car and went: “I like the purple wheels on it.” This angle pretty much the most flattering. The front end? Not so much. Although, that is always in the eye of the beholder.
Out of the 3 meets I have visited this month this one is the closest to Cars and Coffee. Cantina and Cars has a smaller lot which could turn problematic once the meet becomes well known and Rooftop isn’t a monthly thing as far as I know. Both those meets are free to attend, so that is a positive. Fueled Up has a 5…
It has been a good long while since I filmed other meets, but with the demise of Cars and Coffee I need to branch out and see how other events shoot, and how well they do after the video is uploaded.
In the quest for another car show I learned that there was a show called Cantina and Cars (I know, original) that started right after Cars and Coffee on the same day. Initially I wasn’t going to go, but because Cars and Coffee Dallas calls it quits after December I changed my mind.
The official statement speaks of the quality of cars declining. In reality I think that was only part of it. Over the years that I have filmed at the event, I started in March of 2014, I have seen the decline. Less vintage muscle, more current cars and eventually immaturity seeped in. Rev battles, people being idiots…
It feels like we’ve had more rainy days than clear days this past month. During one of my reviews it actually opened up on us which wasn’t the most ideal situation.
With that headline out of the way, I got to drive and review another Challenger, only this time with a V8 under the hood. And it came equipped with the package that for me would be a must have. The Shaker!
Time for another Cars and Coffee. The weather looked right, but I was definitely not feeling it. Had been under the weather for the past week and that always makes Cars and Coffee a bit more of an excursion than it already is.
So, we go from a ZL1 into a car that is probably the other end of the spectrum in terms of sheer acceleration. But what it lacks in that (which is actually pretty fixable if you want to) it makes up in 80's coolness and a low price of entry, especially if you are mechanically inclined like the owner is.
A new month begins which means time for another Cars and Coffee!
This hobby truly is the best. I have driven some pretty powerful cars, but venturing over 600whp/wtq is something that does not happen too often. The fact that there are car enthusiasts out there that trust me enough with a car like that still baffles me and I have driven quite a few cars north of 600hp now.
This day started out normal, nice sub 80F temperatures early on which was nice for a July. I walked the show and saw some pretty nice iron, including a track prepped VW Gol (think VW Fox), which was absolutely amazing. I talked with some people while I made my way over to the supercar section where I copped a NSX and…
So, VTEC is nothing new, but even for as long as I have reviewed cars now (this makes the 42nd car since 2014) I never had the opportunity to experience raw VTEC before. Seen countless of videos on line, heard them change cam profiles in pebut never was the one in charge of making it happen with my right foot.
It was HOT... It is June Texas... JUNE... Slow your roll... (read: I am 100% SNAFU in the coming months, this is going to be a horrid summer).
I am actually kinda surprised a GTI did not get a feature on my channel already. They are just about the most affordable way to get into that hot hatch game, and I see them all the time at cars and coffee. It finally happened with this MK6!
Anyone seen AVENgers? It was awesome. With that out of the way, it is time for another Cars and Coffee post. I don’t think I have seen as many aventadors in the same spot in my life. It was quite the spectacle.
