      We had a thread going a while back, but it had a specific date on it and eventually got lost in the TCL abyss.
      Here's a general thread of pics for the Cars & Coffee that happens at Great Falls, VA.
      Any and all contributions are welcome!

      Some of my pics from 04.07.2012, no particular order, non-pro photographer:

      What an awesome gathering. A friend goes to these in Cali and has nothing but words of praise about the willingness of the owners to share their experiences, to him it always an educational event.

      Nice saleen!

      I know someone local that has a lipstick red saleen s7, it's a treat when we see it.

      Nice turnout

      haha it's mine. stock yo.

      the S7 was the first that i've seen in person, so it was a real treat to see it up close.

      i knew nothing about the GLHS until i asked a guy about it, and he explained it to me.

      ah, we were trying to find the owner, but he managed to sneak out before we could catch up with him!

      Great pics as always. I was floored at some of the cars there. That 993 i am still not sure if that was a real gt2 or not. Parking next to that packard was kinda funny

      Good to see another Great Falls C&C thread.

      I didn't make it out last time. Haven't seen that Saleen before.

      I need to make it out to one of these.... it's a lot easier just to sleep in on Saturday and see what I missed on TCL, though.

      I grew up in Great Falls and have been to this c&c a number of times. Always a great crowd out there with some absolutely stunning vehicles. Cant wait to move back up to the area and start going again.

      I'm going to make an effort to go this Saturday. Hopefully it gets above 40 degrees. I need to meet some of you locals on this board.

      You shoulda came on St. Patty's day - they were setting up the beer tents by 7am.


      Little different crowd, but for anyone who's interested there's an informal car show at VWoA headquarters in Herndon at 10:30 a.m. this Saturday. There may be a couple surprises since it's at HQ. I've never been to one of these so I can't attest but I plan to swing by.

      Heh. That would be my thread, lasted a whole summer if I remember

      I need to get back out before the weather gets hot. Can't be drinking my two large coffees when it's already 75 degrees at 8am.

      the times are merely "guidelines" ... it's really whenever people feel like showing up and whenever they feel like leaving. typical crowds are 6:30-9:30. never fear, the coffee shop itself is open in addition to their outside stand. you can always pop in and get real food and chill out if you want

      glad to see this is drumming up more excitement in the area! i was in the parking lot at work today and saw a 1972 lotus europa. was snapping pics when the owner came out, and i told him about C&C. he seemed interested, we'll see if he makes it out. dude even let me sit in the car before he went out for his lunch break.

      A Europa very similar to that has already made an appearance; I assume it wasn't the same guy then.
