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

No better way to spend Memorial Day weekend than at my local Cars & Coffee. This meetup at Tice’s Corner in Woodcliff Lake, NJ is always a treat, check out the pix:

I arrived a bit late, after 10am which meant may cool cars were either leaving or had already left… like the Enzo Ferrari and McLaren P1… but the Miata’s were still there, and after parking lot clearing a bit we decided to get them together for a photo op:

At this point it was around noon and everyone was hungry so we headed down to Hackensack to my favorite BBQ joint… Cubby’s!

This place is so awesome… there’s nothing “bad” on the menu, everything is “great!”

Looking forward to the next one!

Cars & Coffee at Tice’s Corner in Woodcliff Lake New Jersey August 2016

It’s been hot and steamy over the past few days, including early this Sunday morning where a monthly C&C event took place at the usual meeting spot at Tice’s Corner. The variety of cars was neat with greater representation of the classics, especially a few things i haven’t seen before. (like the BMW Isetta 600, the two door version of the famous Bimmer… with two rows of seats).

Funny how with fewer cars you start to notice things that were definitely there before but didn’t pop out as much, like the BMW i8.

Cars & Coffee at Tice’s Corner in Woodcliff Lake, Northern New Jersey

I can’t believe it’s December, two days after Christmas and three days before New Year and there are Cars and Coffee meets happening in Northern New Jersey. Today’s event was at Tice’s Corner in Woodcliff Lake, NJ just across the street from BMW of North America headquarters. The weather was damp with some fog in the morning but plenty of cars showed up. My time there was very brief because I had to rush to work though.

My goal was to meet other Mazda MX-5 owners to make friends with.  I don’t have any local friends in Bergen County that I could have a Miata related chat with especially when I have questions about my car. And even though there was a beautiful Torch Red NC2 PRHT in attendance I have no idea who the owner was because it wasn’t obvious in the crowd. Too bad. Don’t know why I’m having such hard time finding local Miata owners to hang out with close to where I live. A million cars showed up on my trip to Southeast Asia but local owners don’t seem particularly interested in my company. Go figure.

Some photos from the event:

Plenty of cops in attendance 🙂 just noticed in this photo two Explorers roaming around plus another Crown Vic unit nearby.

Leaving the event I noticed a Copper Red NC1 in my rearview mirror. At first I thought it was one of the Miata.net forum members I had met before, I pulled over to let the guy pass and he honked at me doing so, but it turned out to be a PRHT model just like mine (the forum member has a soft top with some bumper trim accents that this car didn’t have). I ended up following the car all the way to my exit off the highway, and that was really neat to see an identical car to mine in the same neighborhood I live in, but again I have no idea who the owner is. Oh well….
