Cars and Coffee Roundup February 2014

Sensory overload. With a turnout in excess of 1100 cars, that's the only way to describe this month's Cars and Coffee meet. The sheer volume of cars present was absolutely staggering, and every subculture was well-represented. The Austin Jeep People arrived en masse, and large groups of American muscle cars, Japanese imports, and European exotics arrived throughout the day. This was hands-down the largest turnout so far, and sets the bar pretty high for future months. As always, here are some of the coolest machines that were on display.

Simple and understated, for a hot rod.

Track-prepped Factory 5 '33 Coupe.

Pretty red '40 Ford.

I admire a well-executed flame job.

Pretty color.

Absolutely jaw-dropping. Jaguar D-Type.

1960 Corvette in good shape.

Prettiest C2 'Vette I've seen in a while.

Mustang GT 2+2.

More-door Bronco.

Real-deal Austin Cooper S.

Very pretty Chevelle SS.

Fastback Barracuda in the parking garage.

Holy God, it's a Miura. Possibly my favorite car of the show.

Genuine GT350 with a 4-speed manual.

Astrovette. See this link for a full article on this very rare Corvette.

Sporty Firebird 400.

1970 El Camino in great condition.

MGB from before the ugly rubber bumper years.


Super-original '77 Bronco. Killer paint job.

Ferrari 308 GTB. Always loved this bodystyle.

This Trans Am stood out in a crowd of Italian exotics.

From Ferrari's greatest hits collection.

My favorite F355, the targa-topped GTS.

These are less common in Texas than you'd think, actually.

Twin-turbo Ford GT. Pure evil.

Spyker C8 Spyder. Not something you see often.

Skittles-green Murcielago.

NISMO-spec 370Z.

This is...different.

Vanquish Volante. Yes, please.

SRT8 variant of the Charger.

Viper GTS Launch Edition. That color combination is beautiful.

First Chevrolet SS I've seen on the streets. I kind of like it.

The Lamborghini Miura and the Jaguar D-Type stand out as two of my favorites, but I enjoyed everything. This was a wonderful show, and I can't wait to see what next month brings. If you're in the area, be sure to come check it out! I assure you, you won't be disappointed.
