Cars and Coffee: 4-7-13

After a long night of enjoying the weekend, I woke up nice and early and got ready for the weekly cars and coffee in Montecito. After the dismal turnout of last weeks cars and coffee, I hoped that this week was going to be much better. This week was a good treat. My father came out this week, bringing his 1986 Lotus Esprit HCI. The car brought much more attention than he had thought. I brought my 1972 Austin Mini because I hadn’t brought it for a number of weeks. The turnout this week was amazing! From Alfa’s to Zagato designed Lacia’s, they were all there. Many, many Porsches showed up as well. It was an amazing turnout and I hope to come next week and enjoy it all over again.

By the time my father and I arrived, the street was already packed with cars

This 300SL was a showstopper. Gorgeous lines and an amazing red interior to boot.

Over the years, Porsches have slowly grown on me. Even though the flat 6 engines and rear wheel drive are an odd setup for a sports car, Porsche manages to pull it off.

I caught a glimpse of these clean looking brakes on this RUF Porsche Cayman.
