May Coffee & Classics Recap

There’s not much more that we can say than…WOW! The level of collector cars gathering is closer to that of a classic connoisseur magazine than that of enthusiast street gathering. Some of the classics we’ve only seen in museums, yet they’re being driven to Winnetka to for all of us to share. Splendid!

The beauty of Coffee & Classics is the pure magnitude of the variety of classic European cars that continue to amaze. A concours Mercedes Gullwing, Ferrari F40, Porsche 550 Spyder, a NATO Service  Duty 24 volt Land Rover Series II, Invicta, Rabbit GTI and everything in between. We didn’t get all the cars on digital film, so we apologize if your car isn’t in the below gallery.

Definately the biggest compliment to the gathering is the enthusiasts. We’ve said it before, but it’s truly like a giant neighborhood block party. The local residents come out in droves to get a close-up look at cars mostly found in magazines rather than their town center. We can’t tell how many wide-eyed children are educated about automotive history by their equally excited fathers each month. And that’s how our obsessive car culture continues from generation to generation.
