Chris and I made the ten minute trip over to Northborough, MA (Summer home of Daniel Wesson of Smith and Wesson fame) to the Lalajava coffee cafe for their monthly event. Last month they maybe got 20 cars. This month over a hundred showed up and the line for coffee and Danish was way out the door.
My youngest grandson, Josh, got his first ride in my Speedster and loved it (He's been too little for his folks to approve before this). It was also his first ride in a convertible of any model and spent a lot of time looking up at the trees passing by overhead. All in all, a very fun morning, even if it was HOT! 🔥
Here are some captioned photos:
The line-up: Hot Rod Charlie's '82 911 Outlaw, Chris' neighbor's 996, Chris' 996 and Pearl - We thought we were pretty patriotic in Red, White and Blue. Hot Rod Jimmy's '59 356 Cabriolet is sitting just behind Pearl. Hot Rod Jimmy and Hot Rod Charlie are brothers.
This one's for @Sacto Mitch A freshly restored (professionally) BMW 2002 with zero dust, anywhere. I think I heard him say that it is a modified M1(?) engine with electronic fuel injection.
Here's the totally rust-free BMW engine bay, looking like it left the dealership yesterday. Speaking with the happy owner, I don't think this car is ever going to be driven the way it was intended when new.
This is becoming one of those C&C events that you need to arrive at well before 8am or there are no more available parking spots. There's another lot out back for overflow, but few people make the trek back there unless they're parked back there. I suppose we should have put the blue car on the right, huh?
Now I'll see if any of these photos uploaded and displayed correctly.
Let me know if they didn't!
