Cars & Coffee

Every time Tori and I cross the Newark Bay Bridge, on our way to and from Hoboken, she’ll often mention how when you look over the side of the bridge you can see the large number of cars that are sitting in those huge lots below. From what I can tell a lot of the vehicles are new based on the fact that some of them still have their white protective “stickers” on… Anyway the point that always comes up in discussion is that it’s amazing how cars are these complex things. They are a combination of metal, rubber, grease etc.. and now more than ever they are the result of thousands of hours of engineering, design, and testing. What is even more amazing is that all of this work is what goes into any of the run of the mill automobiles that you can buy anywhere (or as Kia puts it..the middle C of cars). One can only imagine how much more development goes into the higher end models such as Ferrari, Mclaren, Porsche and so on.

In an attempt to elaborate on my point above: You know that feeling when an overly attractive person walks into a room and everyone stops what they’re doing to take notice? We’ll that happened to me this past Sunday. Except my experience this weekend has nothing to do with people and everything to do with some amazing automobiles. On Sunday my friend Dany invited me to attend a Cars & Coffee event that his brother was hosting at the dealership where he works. The second we walked into the building it was sensory overload from all of the awesome cars that were on display. The very best from Ferrari, Lamborghini, Mclaren could be seen. Also I have to mention this was a BMW dealer so there were a bunch of classic BMW’s in attendance, some of which I had never seen before. The best way to describe some of these cars is that they are simply works of art. They are pieces of engineering (especially the classic cars) that I reckon will one day be compared to some of the great pieces of art created over the years.

So as I often like to say, here are the photos from Sunday and I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed taking them. Be sure to check out my vsco grid page called “MOTORING”. You can find a link to that here
