every sat til Late Oct I believe...last 2 saturdays had a huge turnout... parking lot was overflowing...a veritable car show without entry forms or admission fees.There had to have been close to 80 cars

I think we had 6 Alfas or so, a few vintage ferraris as well as the new ones; previous Sat there was a pristine Iso Grifo.... in the past there's been pre war Bentley, Aston Martin v8s. Typically lots of Porsches, cobra replicas, lotus, Vettes etc....60's American
etc.

the mix is different every Sat

This is fantastic. I attended the original C&C in CA once in a while when visiting friends when it was still on the PCH, and I always thought someone should do it in DC. Haven't heard anything about it until perusing this forum. With my 19K mile spider on the way from CO, I'll have to come check it out. What groups/makes tend to show up?

Great time at C&C on 10-9-10!

It was great to met a few Alfa folks at the Great Falls Cars and Coffee yesterday - I was particularly happy to arrive just after Brian so we could park the lone Spiders in attendance together!!

Now I'm hoping for a good Indian summer and/or a very mild fall!!

Lots of other interesting machinery out there, including one of my favorites - a quad headlight Ferrari 330!

Thanks guys - see you next time!

Has C&C restarted? If not, when does it usually restart in the Spring?

I am having some work done on the car this week. If I get it back by Saturday and the weather is nice, I'll probably come by. Al

I just returned from C&C. I got there late (around 9am) and many people were leaving, but still an impressive collection of cars considering it's only March. Ferraris, Vipers, Porsches, VW bugs, BMWs, a Lotus, an Austin-Healy and others were still there when I arrived. Ed, I asked if there was a Lancia Scorpion earlier and was told I missed you- sorry about that. Apparently people show up around 7am; kind of early for me, but I am going to make an effort to get there earlier in the next couple of weekends.

Well, guys, I am two for two on this event. This time after the rese of you left I went to start the car and there was an ignition issue. Battery is fine, but everything goes dead when I turn the key, so I am sitting here waiting for my toe. Luckily, I already had the appointment with London for Monday, so I'm just taking it a couple of days early....

Hopefully the third time will be the charm.

Reed, sorry to hear about your problem. Hope it is a simple fix.

Ed, I missed it this morning because I am waiting for the washing machine repair guy (8-11am appointment and just called now at 12:45 he's on his way).
