I hope 2019 is not an extension of 2018, weather-wise. The first Katie's of 2019 was hampered by rain, but the loyal core group still showed up. On a positive note, it wasn't too cold, and it was not actively raining.

It was cold this morning - 27 degrees. No wind, but snow is coming this afternoon. Still, we had an OK turnout at Katie's - including a Ferrari.

I've been on vacation for the last 5 weeks. I had a great time, but it's good to be back...

It's March, and I say it's time for better weather. It seems like we've had rain practically every weekend since the middle of last summer. Who do we contact to fix this?


Cold and misty today, but (as often on bad-weather Saturdays), German cars came out in numbers. Lots of BMWs, including a new BMW 8 Series.

We had snow last night, but the streets were dry when I left home, and the temperature as above freezing - 34F, in fact. This is what passes for good weather here, lately.

It seems like, when it's cold & wet & snowy, almost all the cars that show up to Katie's are German. No Ferraris there this morning, but I saw one heading for Katie's as I left, right around 8:00AM.

Amazing! We had a cool, clear Saturday, and the biggest Katie's by far this year! Several Ferraris there today, the day before St. Patrick's Day.


The cars were parked all the way around the complex today.

Sorry - my laptop gave up the ghost in late March, and I'm just catching up in mid-April! My friend Pete brought out his well-turned-out Sprite... Several Ferraris there, too!

A pretty good number of Ferraris there today. That last car is an oddity - a Lotus Omega. When it came out in 1990, one of the fastest 4-door cars in the world.
Twin-turbo inline-6, 377hp, ~180mph. A great 'sleeper'!

It rained through the night last night, but stopped 20 minutes before I left home to go to Katie's. As a result, Cars & Coffee got a late start, and was limited to not much more than a full front lot. No Ferraris today. Still, there were some nice vehicles there!

A pretty good turnout - and lots of interesting cars & people. Interesting note - that second-to-last picture shows a very nice Lamborghini Espada, about to pass by a brand-new Lamborghini Urus, its grandson...

What started out as an overcast Saturday morning turned into a pretty nice day at Katie's. A couple of really nice Ferraris there today, and a questionable one.

A pretty good turnout at Katie's, what with the balmy temperature and no rain, for a change.

This was one of those Saturdays at Katie's, where you say, 'where did all these Ferraris come from?'
I really liked the F12 TDF.

Of all the narcissists I know, I love me the most.

That truck has actually been to Katie's several times, in the last 2 or 3 years. It's a big hit. I think I heard from someone that this was originally one of the GM Futurama trucks. Below is this vehicle, another old Futurama truck, and what this reminds me of...

Thanks for that. I think all the Futurama busses are accounted for, so the one at Katieís was likely born that way. A COE recently sold on BaT, nowhere near as nice as this one. I canít imagine the garage you need to House one....
