I have heard about it, yet never made it out last year. Again people started asking if I would make it out to Engineered Automotive’s Cars ‘n’ Coffee – and I said why not! After a long awaited spring I knew this would be a busy event, it was slated to be the warmest day of the year so far. Boy was I right!
As I rolled in, down Confederation Drive, I can see a huge gathering of vehicles and people. Wow, I was impressed. Of course EA’s parking lot was jammed full. But the crowd of people and cars over flowed to neighbouring industrial buildings down the block and along the side streets. You had to be there early to get a good spot. The scene reminded me of the early 2000’s when meets like these were a regular occurrence in local parking lots. It was nice to see the scene alive and kicking.
The variety of cars were extraordinary. You had high end Mercedes, Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Maclarens, and Porsches. And there was a wide mix of import tuners; GTRs, Toyotas, Hondas, Subarus, and Mitsubishis. The usual domestic beasts were present; Corvettes, Mustangs etc… There was also a mix of custom vehicles that you could tell took years of dedication to build.
Engineered Automotive’s Cars ‘n’ Coffee is held the first Sunday of each month, starting in May. Check out their website for more details. I hope to bring my Toyota Supra to one of these events. It might even end up being the next one. Just this time I’ll make sure I have time for a coffee!
