      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.

      Those, and Stealerships. No... your Smart does not belong here.

      I'll probably be out this weekend.
      I keep up with traffic with only 90 hp. What's your superpower?

      they've backed off a bit recently (thankfully). pretty sure no one was giving any of them business. same goes for the mobile detailing crews that show up from time to time.

      sounds like there's going to be a decent TCL contingent showing up tomorrow!

      I've gone only once this year so far, about 3 weeks ago, and I have to say the turnout was about as big as anything I saw last year, plus there was a whole lotta new stuff.

      The detailing crew from what I was told was asked not to come back b/c they were taking up too many spots. Top things off nobody was even paying any attention to them.

      Tim, if you come out I'll bring your brake tool w/me.

      Definitely sounds like a mini TCL meet of sorts.

      We should do it. All park over on the lot where the farmer's market used to be - then we can all see the POS's we drive

      Yeah, if you're approaching from Walker Rd, you'd turn in where the Wells Fargo bank is. Just past Columbine. On really busy days, the nice cars have to overflow into there, but that doesn't happen too often.

      I might be biased but I see no problem with Dealerships showing up to show off some new stuff...as long as everyone is respectful can't we all get along?

      When the dealership guys are taking up prime real estate from the rare cars that deserve to be up front, then yes - I have a problem with it.
