Caffeine & Carburetors - CT/NY - Starts April 10th

Hey guys,

I posted this in the general events section, but thought I would mention here as it's a local CT/NY event. My wife and I help out the digital and social media aspect for this really fun gathering Sunday mornings on Pine Street in New Cannan. It's called Caffeine & Carburetors and it's basically car guys and gals sipping really good coffee from Zumbach's and checking out some beautiful cars.

The first gathering this year is April 10th. There's something for everyone, from Morgans to Alfas, Porsches to Model Ts... It's heavily biased toward European sports cars, but always a good showing of American cars, trucks, and 2-wheeled transport as well.

Check out the site for some of last years pics and stop out if you can. It's free, non-juried, and a wonderful no-pressure atmosphere. It's early Sundays, cars start showing up around 8:00, with the stretch of Pine Street being packed by 9:00-9:30, so you've still got the rest of the day to spend in reality. Or you hang out till 10:00 and join in the group drive around the local countryside.

Let me know if you have any questions, otherwise look for me and my wife (the ones taking a lot of pictures... Mostly of the Alfas.. )

Certainly, next one is May 22. This was an awesome turn out. Had some great stuff, A Jag XJ 220, Porsche 959 and a Lamborghini Miura to name just a very few. Pics are here if you're interested...

Stop down to Zumbach's Coffee on Pine St in New Canaan, CT with your Alfa for a morning cup of coffee with fellow gear heads. For those interested, the C&C drive following the gathering will start around 10, just stop by the driver's table to pick up the route. As always this is fun and free event open to all. See you there!

Last event before the summer break!
this Sunday, 6/19 @ 8am!


We take a break during the hotter summer months, so this is your last chance until September to come down to Zumbach's Coffee and enjoy the event! As always it is on Pine St in New Canaan, CT, perfect for dropping by the Darien Concours d'Elegance afterwards. C&C is fun and free event open to all. See you there!

Fall is here!
this Sunday, 10/9 @ 8am!


Last gathering was fantastic! Got to see Michael's beautiful Duetto, a gorgeous Guilia, and a GT Veloce that my wife had to pry me away from! Not to mention the 1938 BMW 328 and the 300SL Gullwing. Weather is going to be beutiful I hear, so come down to Zumbach's Coffee and enjoy the event! As always it is on Pine St in New Canaan, CT. C&C is fun and free event open to all. See you there!

Season Finale!

Season Finale!
this Sunday, 11/6 @ 8am!


This is it for the season folks, and C&C is going out with a bang! The Ferrari transporter will be on-site with a 458 Challenge race car. Oh and there'll be a Veyron Grand Sport there as well... It kicks off at Zumbach's Coffee as always on Pine St in New Canaan, CT. If you participate in the drive following the event, you'll be treated to some incredible grilled cheese, soup, and wine from Ridgefield's 109 Cheese & Wine (I will be particularly looking forward to this as I'm considering taking the Ducati tomorrow...) See you there with a warm cup of joe in hand!
