On the first Sunday of every month, car enthusiasts swarm to the Vintage Oaks parking lot for an event called “Cars and Coffee.” People from all types of backgrounds come to the event to socialize, make friends, and to be a part of the gearhead culture. The cars and trucks that people bring vary enormously.
The assortment of cars is vast, from the classic American muscle cars to the tuner Japanese cars all the way to the exotic Italian supercars. There are also a few unique ones which may interest some.
Novato High senior Daelin Waschke recently attended his first “Cars and Coffee” event, and highly recommends it.
“I’d say they should go try it out,” said Waschke. “Even if you don’t like cars, it’s a nice place to go.”
There were many cars that stood out during the event, including a brand new hyper-blue Porsche 911 GT3 and a cherry-red Ferrari 458. These cars in particular brought lots of attention from photographers and people who simply heard their Flat 6 and V-12 naturally-aspirated engines making music from across the parking lot. This is the music that car enthusiasts understand and enjoy.
Bryan Kadin, a Novato High senior and owner of a 2014 Rally Blue Subaru Impreza WRX, also recently attended his first “Cars and Coffee” event and sees it as a great place to go to.
“I'm glad that I attended the event,” said Kadin. “It was nice seeing so many others that shared a common interest.”
Overall “Cars and Coffee” is a friendly place that is open to all. If you are interested the next one is this Sunday at 8 a.m.
