Katie's, 01/04/20

The first Katie's C & C of the year, and it was foggy, but mild - over 50F at 5:00AM! As often happens here, the crowd was sparse, until people woke up and realized it wasn't raining, and wasn't cold. By 7:30AM, there was a decent crowd, though nothing really exotic.


The guy that owned the Challenger had a strategy to avoid door dings you hadn't thought of! Yes, they were on both sides!

Perhaps also a reference to the idea that the car's a boat.

Funny to look at, but if he cared about not scratching up his cars doors, he'd have some fender sox on them. Those Taylor fenders are hard plastic, with not a lot of give.

Quite a good turnout at Katie's today. Plenty of interesting cars to see.

Department of Bad Ideas

I saw this Renault 4CV at Cars & Coffee yesterday. That chrome detail on the back is a fancy surround for the fuel filler. REALLY? While it certainly looks nice, and dresses up the otherwise plain-Jane rear, why would you think it's a good idea to position it above the hot engine?

It reminded me of the VW bug we saw in Cancun a couple of years ago... 5 happy guys in the car with a gravity-feed, jerry-rigged gas canister on the back engine lid. They smiled and waved as we took pictures of them driving off. I was just hoping we weren't going to hear an explosion, followed by the flaming gasoline trail coming back towards us.

Katie's, 01/18/20

A common question I get is, 'when does the season for Katie's Cars & Coffee begin and end?' The answer is, there is no season - people will show up driving 'something', as long as they can get there!

Today was a good example. The weather forecast has snow starting between 6AM and 7AM. I went at my normal time, and had breakfast before anyone else (besides Katie's staff) showed up. By the time I left, there were a few other cars in the lot. During the winter, Katie's becomes more of a social event than a car event.

Katie's, 01/25/20

It warmed up for the weekend, but we had fairly heavy rain this morning. That meant a small crowd at Katie's.
Chuck showed off the new 'bling' on his Macan - the blanking plug for his tow hitch. Of course, it has the Porsche crest.
I'm guessing the official option name is 'PTHC' - (Porsche Tow Hitch Cover)

P.S.: I had a 5+ mile detour on the way home from Katie's, because of a flood on Hunter Mill Road, near the bike trail crossing.
