Cars and Coffee Montrose, April 10th, 2010

Cars and Coffee Sprite and Cobras
Woohoo! Hangin' with the cool guys…so happy!
Another week, another great start to the weekend. We’ve been attending CnC Montrose for a while now, but new (old) cars keep showing up. Based on what showed up this week, we imagine it’ll be some time before we’re bored. Hit the jump and let us soften the blow Monday morning dealt you. DSC_0078DSC_0079DSC_0085DSC_0087DSC_0084 This clean-but loved Ford earned points for eschewing the typical smallblock swap for Hemi power. The Torq Thrusts are aged to perfection. DSC_0100DSC_0103DSC_0102DSC_0101 Leave it to the Citroen to have weird stickers. DSC_0118DSC_0119DSC_0122DSC_0123DSC_0125DSC_0124 Yellow was bigger in the 70s than now. Engines, too. We suspect the 428 Cobrajet would stomp all over that ’76 Vette. DSC_0126DSC_0127DSC_0133DSC_0134 Even a lowly Bug looks so much cooler all rallied out. DSC_0147DSC_0154DSC_0137DSC_0142DSC_0145 The Espada needs neither auxiliary lights nor decals to look cool. The_Missus was admiring it, as it’s high on her list of Soccer Mom cars (I suspect she’s trying to kill me, what with the 12 cylinders and 6 carbs). This example was nearly perfect in every way. The interior’s likely better put together now than when it came off the line. DSC_0160DSC_0164DSC_0166DSC_0167DSC_0168 I readily admit to being a Mopar fan, but not a Mopar expert. Which is to say, I had no idea there was no such thing as a Road Runner II until I just googled it and found a Hemmings article on this very car. Read up, be impressed, then come back and finish this post. DSC_0178DSC_0179DSC_0181DSC_0187 VW Buses: the stickers and other kit are at least as attractive as the vehicle. DSC_0188DSC_0189DSC_0192DSC_0195 This yellow Chevy straddles the line between “beater” and “work in progress”. But who are we to judge? DSC_0197DSC_0198DSC_0200DSC_0201DSC_0204 This Boss 302 sports a …unique paint color, but with its four speed and tunnel-port “Clevor” 302, is likely equally fast. DSC_0211DSC_0214DSC_0218 This Star Chief likely contains a notable percentage of all the world’s nickel and chromium in its brightwork. DSC_0245DSC_0227DSC_0221DSC_0224DSC_0233DSC_0235DSC_0241 We now enter the super incredible section of today’s program. In addition to being knock your socks off gorgeous, this MG sports a Judson supercharger. I had to wait a long time to get an even remotely clean shot of it. DSC_0246DSC_0247DSC_0250DSC_0254 Who doesn’t love a gullwing? Seriously, who? You’re outta here. DSC_0287DSC_0285DSC_0259DSC_0263DSC_0268DSC_0280 This Jag C Type was so gorgeous it hurt. Not just the flowing lines, but the cleanliness of construction blew my mind. According to Wikipedia, if this is real it’s worth nearly a million dollars. We did notice the guy driving it was British, sporting a leather jacket and leather driving gloves…so…there’s that. As always, be sure to check out the rest of the set on our flickr stream.
