2016 Northern VA Sunday Cars & Coffee Events
10 Attachment(s)
There are several Sunday morning cars & coffee events in the Northern Virginia area. I attend the one out at Dulles Landing early on many Sundays, and travel over to Fairfax Circle with some friends. I will post pictures from both when I attend these events.

Please post your Sunday Cars & Coffee pictures here.

Dulles Landing: Most people arrive after 7:00AM, and there is plenty of space for all the vehicles. Large groups of like cars park together, with exotics, domestic muscle, off roaders, and hot rods all well-represented. Dunkin Donuts is right there for breakfast. Directions to Dulles Landing -

Directions | Dulles Landing Shopping Center

Around 8:30AM, I usually head over to Fairfax Circle to see a slightly different crowd. A smattering of hot rods, imports and exotics dominate this venue. Coffee and snacks are available at Cameron's, with very good baked goods. This parking lot is at 9653 Lee Highway (29), in Fairfax, VA.

Today was the first Sunday of 2016, and the clear skies and 29 degree temperature did not discourage people from coming out. After all, this isn't bad weather at all for January!

This morning's temperature? - cool, but not mid-January cold. It was high-thirties when I left my house at 6:40AM. There was a forecast of flurries, but they did not start until 11:30AM. Not a bad morning at all for the few who came out to these two events. How bad could it have been? Look what I drove!

All in all, a pretty good day, weather-wise. I have spent far too much time inside, due to the recent snowstorm, so I was anxious to get a car out. I chose the Seven, and the morning was clear but a little cool. Still, no problems getting anywhere on the by-now-cleared roads. Sadly, I did not have a lot of company, at either Dulles Landing or at Fairfax Circle today.

The majority of attendees at Dulles Landing were in Jeeps, and it was me and a C7 Corvette by ourselves for quite a while at Fairfax Circle.

Not a big turnout at either location, but some worthwhile vehicles at both venues. For exotics, though, it was Matt M's F430, Bobert's XKR-S, and Dino brought his brother's Viper.

We managed a pretty good showing this morning, ahead of some rain. Bobert showed up in his 355 Berlinetta. A good portion of those in attendance were a large group of Mustangs, who arrived en masse.

We had a reasonable turnout at both venues, on a cool but clear morning, the last Sunday in February. We even had a couple of Ferraris today!

A light turnout today, at both Dulles Landing and at Fairfax Corner. I guess people are waiting for warmer weather. No Ferraris at all...

The events today were predictably light in attendance, in both locations. It was overcast this morning, with some rain threatening. Also, this was the first day of Daylight Savings, meaning that everybody lost an hour of sleep. Still, even with the smaller turnouts, the interesting cars & people that did show up made it worth the trip!

Not what I would call a good turnout in either location this morning, almost certainly due to the rain/very light snow overnight. No accumulation, and the roads were mostly dry this morning, but it was cold and overcast. Not a typical "first day of spring". We will do better next week.

Today was Easter Sunday, so Cameron's at Fairfax Corner was closed. Dulles Landing had a pretty good turnout, though there were no Ferraris. We did have a brand-new, flat-plane-crank V8 Mustang GT 350, and several other interesting vehicles.

The calendar might say it's spring, but somebody didn't get the message. It was in the mid-thirties this morning, with high, gusty winds. I even saw a few snow flurries on the way to Dulles Landing this morning. What brings people out on a morning like this? Well, for me, it's to see interesting cars... While these two venues were slow to get started, we ended up with a good crowd at both. No Ferraris today, but a couple of Gallardos.

I have not attended any Sunday morning cars & coffee since the first week of April, since the weather has been very bad in Northern Virginia this spring. It was nice to get out on a nice Sunday morning, which just happened to also be Mother's Day. I drove out to Dulles Landing, the large shopping center near the junction of 50 (Lee Jackson Memorial Highway) and 606. That cars & coffee event starts around 7:00AM, centered around the Dunkin Donuts. At about 8:30AM, myself and several friends drive back in 50 towards 66, and drive to Fairfax Circle, where another cars & coffee takes place. At this location, we grab coffee and baked goods at Cameron's Coffee. Nice people and cars at both locations.

I only saw one Ferrari this morning, a very nice yellow 458, who was at both locations.

At Dulles Landing, Dino brought out the Baldwin-Motion Corvette he just bought.

I did not make it out to Dulles Landing on Sunday, but I did show up at the later-starting Fairfax Circle cars & coffee. It was chilly and windy, but some hardy souls made it out. No Ferraris, though.

A beautiful morning for a drive. A perfect day for a quick stop at Dulles Landing around 6:45AM, and a drive over to Fairfax Corner at 8:15AM.

A gorgeous morning - I used two Cars & Coffee events as a 'warm-up' to our Lotus club's drive to lunch in Upperville, VA.

A nice Sunday morning, though foggy. I was surprised to see the first car below - it was even smaller than my Seven!

The original weather forecast for today was rain, but it did hold off until about 9:45AM. Naturally, attendance at the C & C was light.

The white Buick was very nicely done. It was a real shock to see him open the hood to see the LS3 engine!

We made a quick trip over to Fairfax Circle, to see Dino's new car - a 512BB.
On a chilly day, with some gusty winds, there was still a nice turnout there.

I did see a Ferrari on the drive home - that last one was parked on the lot at my financial advisor's building - does anyone know whose it is?

No, Paul has both the Triumph and a '32 Ford Roadster, and he NEVER has the tops up!

--Bob Collum

Killer58 11-27-2016 03:32 PM

Great, we're of like mind - I've haven't had my TR4A's top up in over 20 years.
Of course, we lived in SOCAL for most of that.....

David, What is this top of which you speak???

Best regards,

Here is my "LRC", who's been with me since high school. I don't have any photos of the car with top raised. Last I raised it was nearly 20 years ago, when I took it off to have the car painted.

I've driven it during rain, fog, and hail. But unlike you and your LBC, never in snow (we don't have that here in SOCAL !!) :wink4:

Top down by choice?
I went for a drive on the coast,early morning,a month back and had a BMW M3 with the top down behind me. It was a foggy and wet morning. The guy kept using his wipers to clear the windscreen. I was mightly impressed and when he pulled next to me, I rolled down my window(F430) and yelled "Top down!" while giving a thumbs up. The man looked a little confused and simply nodded. About 30 sec after I did that a thought ran through my head "What if his top simply doesn't go up and he HAS to drive with it down?" The car looked pretty beat up.:grin4:
