Cars & Coffee at Tice’s Corner Woodcliff Lake New Jersey June 2017

Sunday Fun Day! A heatwave is hitting Northern New Jersey, and a ton of people came out for this month’s Cars & Coffee event at Tice’s Corner in Woodcliff Lake, NJ

I overslept… didn’t wash my car but wanted to hang out with a few people at the event. So I rushed over… and as soon as I pulled in around 10am everyone else started leaving… all the McLaren P1’s, the Porsche 911’s, the Lamborghinis and Ferrari’s of very recent vintage, but the few cars that remained still caught my eye. So I wanted to share some pix of them…. I realize a lot of the cars are classic and vintage, which you’re likely to see at your neighborhood’s weekly cruise night. But I don’t care. It was a great mix of new and old and for me these oldies stood out….

especially the Figaro:

It’s also important to remember that this area of Jersey is still very European… there’s BMW North American headquarters just across the street. There’s lots of Italians still living here. The real Mafialand… you know where Soprano’s are from. So it’s nice to see all these Alfa Romeo’s, Lancia’s and Fiat’s around. The classic type, the ones that you don’t normally see here. That was nice to see!

Oh and I also really loved the Geländewagen:

Haven’t seen these in a while… but I have seen them before… in Europe, Asia and Australia/New Zealand. It was nice to see them again!

How is this car a “Historic”?

It is registered as one… look at the Trianglular inspection sticker.

Seeing the Mercedes-Benz 300SL in both convertible and gullwing was awesome… seen both of them before but they sure stood out.

Oh look… a nice Ford

C’est fini….  until next time!

Cars & Decaf Bergen County at Fireplace in Paramus

I love coming out to car events, especially if they’re so local I could practically walk there. So tonight I finally had a chance to check out the local Cars & Decaf (the weekday version of Cars & Coffee) in Bergen County held at the famous Fireplace restaurant in Paramus.

I’ve been to the Fireplace a number of times before because the food is good, so this time I arrived early, went inside for a nice meal and by the time I came out the parking lot was full of very pretty cars. The most interesting thing to me was how mixed up everything was… you had your Lamborghini Aventador’s parked next to Ferrari F430’s, parked next to Mazda MX-5 Miata’s. But instead of writing about it, I’ll just share some cell phone pix I took:

I got to chat with both the S2000 and the Elise owners. Great guys. The Lotus owner was kind enough to park his car next to the Miata so I can take some comparison shots. The MX-5 looks huge next to the tiny little Elise.

Very happy I had the opportunity to attend this event, and will be sure to keep an eye out on future events in this area this summer.
